Adding My PT Hub as an Admin to the Developer Account Giving us access to the Account Step 1: Decide whether you want My PT Hub to have global or per-app access 

Before you set up permissions, you need to decide if you want us to have global or per-app access. We recommend that you give us Global access (assuming this is the only app going onto this account). Here's a breakdown of the two access levels. 

Step 2: Adding My PT Hub and turning on or off permissions 

If you're an account owner or admin, you can add My PT Hub as a user to your Play Console account and manage permissions across all apps or for specific apps. Follow these steps to add My PT Hub as an admin

  1. Sign in to your Play Console. 2. Click Settings > Users & permissions
  • To add My PT Hub as a user, select Invite new user and follow the onscreen instructions. 
  • To update permissions for an existing user, hover over their email address and select the pencil icon . 3. Use the "Role" selector to choose a pre-defined role or use the checkboxes for individual 

permissions. 4. Choose whether each permission applies to all apps in your developer account ("Global") 

or specific apps. 

  • To add an app to the permissions table, use the down arrow next to "Add an app." 
  • To see details for each permission, review the permission definitions section. 5. Click Send Invitation

Note: If no access expiration date is selected, My PT Hub will have ongoing access to the Play Console account (required for on going support).
