  1. PlayFab ID - The player ID identifies the player you are currently inspecting.
  2. Display name - Allows you to edit the display name for this player.
  3. Username - A read-only field for inspecting the player's username. Username can be empty. When present, it can be used for a player to log in using a username and password.
  4. Email - This field is hidden and locked due to PII concerns. The email field can be empty. When present, it can be used for player to log in using email and password. You may use the Lock icon button to unlock and change the email value.
  5. Change Password - When set, this can be used to assign a new password for the user. This setting is mutually exclusive with Send password reset email.
  6. Send password reset email - When set, this allows you to send a password recovery email when an email value is present. This setting is mutually exclusive with Change password.
