You can add any number of collaborators to work with you on your PatchKit projects. Collaborators are invited by e-mail with a designated role.
Adding a Collaborator
First, make sure that you’re logged with your root account or a collaborator with owner role. If you don’t have access to either, ask your account administrator to do it.
To add a collaborator, navigate to your Account page, click on the Manage Collaborators button, then on Collaborators page click on New Collaborator button. On the form fill-in e-mail address of the person you’d like to add as a collaborator and choose his/her role (see below). When done, submit the form by clicking on Add Collaborator button.
When done, a confirmation e-mail message is sent to the specified address. It contains a link pointing to collaborator sign in form. It’s different from the regular sign in form since it requires to provide an Account ID and it asks to create a new password on the first log in.
Each collaborator can be assigned to one of the following roles:
- Can browse through applications
- Can download the launcher
- Everything that Guest can do
- Can create new application versions
- Can upload/import new version’s content
- Can edit version’s label and changelog
- Can publish a version
- Everything that Publisher can do
- Can create/remove applications
- Can create/remove channels
- Can change application properties (e.g., display name, author, banner image).
- Can manage license keys
- Everything that Maintainer can do
- Can change billing information
- Can change subscription plan
Account ID is a unique number to identify your root account along collaborators. In order to sign in as a collaborator of your PatchKit account, one must know your Account ID, as good as be granted to access your account’s resources.
Where to find the Account ID?
Account ID is sent with a first collaborator invitation email. Also, it can be found on the Account -> Collaborators page. Ask your collaborators to keep their invitation email, bookmark sign in URL or save Account ID somewhere safe, since without it they won’t be able to log-in.
