Configure User as a Developer

For a shared user to be able to edit your application, the user must be added as a developer under your account and the application must be shared to them. Once the application is shared to a developer, you can provide edit permission access to the developer.

  1. Go to Edit mode of the Application.
  2. Choose Application Settings ->Share tab.
  3. Click on the Manage Users button on the top right corner of the page.
  4. The Account Setup page opens, containing the list of added Users.
  5. Click on the Change button available next to the Role of the User to change the role from User to developer.

Alternatively, the Developer can be added directly to your account by clicking on Add Developer option in the Application settings -> General tab.
