Accessing and Enabling Game Center Functionality
Game Center information appears in iTunes Connect at two levels: at the app level, you configure all the details for leaderboards and achievements. At the version level, you identify which leaderboards and achievements to associate with that version of the app. This section describes how to access the two configuration levels.
Navigating to Your App’s Game Center Page
To get started using Game Center with your app, navigate to your app’s Game Center page, and if this is the first time through the process, enable your app for Game Center.
Sign in to iTunes Connect using your Apple ID user name and password.
Click Manage Your Apps.
Select the app you want to manage.
If the app doesn’t appear in the list of apps with recent activity, find it by:
Clicking See All to show a list of all apps in your organization
You can click column headings to sort the list and use the Page controls to move between pages in the list.
Using the fields in the Search section below the Recent Activity list
Click Manage Game Center.
If the app has been enabled for Game Center previously, the Game Center page opens.
If this is the first time that this app has been configured for Game Center, you’re prompted to enable Game Center. Select one of these options:
Select “Enable for Single Game” if you’re configuring Game Center components specifically for this app.
Select “Enable for Group Games” if you want the Game Center components you configure to be used by more than one app.
The appropriate Game Center page opens.
Enabling Game Center for Your App
There are two places in iTunes Connect that you enable Game Center for an app:
App Information, Game Center page. Open the Game Center page for your app from the App Summary page by clicking Manage Game Center.
From the Game Center page you configure all of the Game Center components used by your app. Enabling Game Center on this page allows this app to communicate with Game Center and adds Game Center metadata, as described in “Game Center Properties,” to the iTunes Connect record for the app.
App Version, Versions Details page. Open the Version Details page for your app from the App Summary page by clicking Version Details for a specific app version.
The Version Details page includes specific options to enable the Game Center configuration for this version of the app. Set these options when your testing is complete and you’re ready to submit your app. See “Turning On Game Center for the App Version.”
You need to enable Game Center in both locations to allow your app access to configured components through Game Center.
Disabling Game Center for Apps
Up until a version of your app is approved, you can disable Game Center for an app. This action disables Game Center for all versions. To disable Game Center for a specific version of the app, see “To disable a version of your app for Game Center.”
Go to the Game Center page of your app, as described in “Navigating to Your App’s Game Center Page.”
In the Game Center section, click the toggle to disable Game Center.
