What is the Player Identifier and why do I need one?

Every leaderboard needs a unique player identifier. This is the unique key by which players will be identified.

Supported player identifiers are:
  • E-mail Address
  • Twitter Username
  • Facebook Account  (Page)
  • Yammer Account
  • Name
  • Leaderboard
Name and Leaderboard are special cases:
  • Name - this allows you to enter just the names of players and create a leaderboard. The players are registered under the leaderboard owner's account and may only be updated by the leaderboard owner.
  • Leaderboard - this allows you to make a leaderboard of leaderboards where the child leaderboards (with scores totalled / averaged across players) are the players in the parent leaderboard
