Unified Development Teams for Organizations

Starting February 12, 2019 development teams for organizations in the Apple Developer Program will be unified across the Apple Developer website and App Store Connect, with one team and one set of roles.

Overview

Currently, each Apple Developer Program organization membership includes a development team with access to resources on the Apple Developer website and separate access to App Store Connect. Each site has its own set of members and roles — Apple Developer Program roles determine access to membership benefits related to app development and distribution, such as Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, while App Store Connect roles determine access to app management, financial information, analytics, and more for apps on the App Store.

Starting February 12, 2019, these teams will be unified for organization memberships. Each organization will have one team with one set of roles across the Apple Developer website and App Store Connect. Management of users and roles will be done in App Store Connect.

These changes will not affect individual memberships or Apple Developer Enterprise Program memberships.

How Roles will be Unified

Members of a Team on the Apple Developer Website and App Store Connect

If you're part of an organization's team on the Apple Developer website and in App Store Connect, you will keep your current App Store Connect role. However, permissions for your current App Store Connect role may change, you may be assigned additional App Store Connect roles, or you may have modified access to Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles on the Apple Developer website.

Members of a Team on the Apple Developer Website Only

If you’re part of an organization's team on the Apple Developer website but not part of its team in App Store Connect, you'll gain access to all apps associated with the organization's team in App Store Connect and be assigned the Developer role by default. Please note that the Developer role does not include the ability to create distribution and service certificates, approve certificate signing requests, or delete app IDs.

Members of a Team in App Store Connect Only

If you’re part of an organization's team in App Store Connect but not part of its team on the Apple Developer website, your new role may include access to additional membership benefits or developer tools, including Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles and CloudKit dashboard.

Editing Roles

Changes to roles and permissions can be made in the Users and Roles section of App Store Connect, accessible by Account Holders and admins they've added to App Store Connect. Contact your Account Holder or an admin if you require changes.

Unified Role Permissions

These upcoming role updates include permissions across the Apple Developer website and App Store Connect. Please note that the “Account Holder” role on the Apple Developer website and the “Legal” role in App Store Connect will be called “Account Holder”.
