Question Player name API

    Hi, is there any ETA on the player name API?

    I would like to use the leaderboard service server authoritatively and have player names on it. I don't want players to just be able to upload any name they please, I want these to be set by the game hosting server. Is this possible?

    The player names feature was officially released with version 2.5.0 of Authentication.
    The api currently only works when providing a player access token so you would need to have these accessible from your server.

    We will look into expanding support to more authorization methods.
