Oculus Quest Development

All Oculus Quest developers MUST PASS the concept review prior to gaining publishing access to the Quest Store and additional resources. Submit a concept document for review as early in your Quest application development cycle as possible. For additional information and context, please see Submitting Your App to the Oculus Quest Store.

Create an Organization and Manage Users

Before you can distribute an app with the Oculus platform, you need to create or join an organization on the Oculus dashboard. An organization represents the company or individual associated with an app or game and this name displays with an app in the Oculus Store. You use the dashboard to create and manage organizations and users associated with each organization.

This topic contains the following sections:

Create an Organization

To create an organization:

  1. Log in to your Oculus account and navigate to https://dashboard.oculus.com/.
  2. If you have not previously created an organization you’ll get a prompt to Create New Organization. If you have already created an organization, you can open the dropdown at the top of the page and then select Create New Organization.
  3. Enter the name of the organization. Choose carefully, as this name will accompany any app you distribute. Select Submit.
  4. Review the Developer Non-Disclosure Agreement.
  5. Once you’ve agreed to the terms and select Accept, you’ll be taken to your My Apps page where you can create your organization’s first app. Information about creating apps can be found on the App Submission and Store Review page. Additional information about the release channels offered can be found in the Release Channels section.

Add Users to your Organization and App

Once you’ve created your organization and an app, you can define the users who will be working on the application and what they will be doing. These roles give additional permissions that will be needed to complete the development process.

There are several roles you can define for an organization:

  • Admin - Admins have access to all development and financial information for an organization.
  • Developer - Developers have access to all development related functions; e.g. the Manage Builds tab, the Platform Services tab, and more that are required to define, build, or manage an application. The Developer role is set at the app level, so you can add developers only for the app they are working on.
  • Finance - The Finance role provides a user access to all the financial information for an organization. The Finance role does not have access to any app development information.
  • Editor - Editors can access and modify your organization’s content created through the creator studio. They don’t have admin, developer, or finance member privileges. Test Users - These are users that can test and benchmark your apps and have access to test social features like matchmaking. To add Test Users, see Test Users.

Add Admin, Developer, Finance or Editor Members

Note that All org members must have an Oculus account, and you must know their Oculus user name to add them to your organization. To add members:

  1. Log in to your Oculus account and navigate to https://dashboard.oculus.com/.
  2. Find and expand the organization name in the left menu. Then expand the Settings entry and select Members. The following image shows an example:
