You can automatically generate a community by registering the community URL in the App Center.

If pre-settings are not configured in the App Center, please follow the steps below in the specified order.

(If it is a custom community, not a Hive community, please refer to this guide.)

Menu Location Content Note
App Center > Manage Project
  • Create Game
App Center > Manage Project > Select the game > AppID tab
  • Create an app ID for community purposes
  • Please create only one community app ID.
  • Please select an Web Login app ID when creating an app id
App Center > Manage Project > Select the game> Hive Product Settings tab
  • Create Community URL
  • Community URL must be created after creating the community app ID for normal operation.
  • The created community URL cannot be changed.
  • Existing URLs cannot be reused in other communities.

Community can be created only when the game is registered in the App Center. Please check the App Center guide for game registration.

If you are registering a new game, it may take some time due to console caching.

  • Menu to check the registered game: App Center > Manage Project> Manage Project

The community is provided not only on PC/mobile web browsers but also in the game in a web view form.

Therefore, App ID issuance is required in Hive SDK to convey community usage information.

 

Community App ID must be created under the game where you want to use the community.

Please select the purpose as “Community” in the web login App ID.

  • Menu location: App Center > App ID Management > [Register New App ID] button

 

You can create a community URL (domain) to use in the App Center.

  • Menu location: App Center > Game Management > Game List > (Select the corresponding game) > Hive Product Settings

 

Main domain cannot be changed, but subdomains corresponding to 2Depth categories (main menu) or 3Depth menu can be changed in the console.

  • Domain example: https://community.withhive.com/Game name to be used

 

Please set the game name to be used according to the rules below.

  • _ (underscore) not allowed (e.g., game_com2us –> not allowed)
  • Within 14 characters
  • Not duplicable
  • Use the same game name as the login > web login > Redirect URI

If you are using a custom community, not a Hive community, please select the custom community and register the URL.

It will be automatically registered in the Hive console whitelist for calling the community in the game as a web view.

(If it is not registered in the whitelist, it may work normally on the web, but errors may occur in the web view.)

 

When accessing the community in the game, automatic login is possible, but web login is required in the PC/mobile web environment.

The IdP types provided by Hive web login are as follows.

  • Hive Membership
  • Google
  • Facebook
  • Apple (Different from Apple Game Center)

Hive Membership does not require separate settings, but for Google/Facebook/Apple, pre-registration is required for the key values provided by each service.

The login IDP information to be used also needs to be registered in the App Center.
