About Xbox Live

PlayFab supports player authentication via Xbox Live. Support for in-app purchase is coming soon, and works via an entitlement method. Xbox games first complete a transaction on the console, then notify PlayFab that a purchase has been made. PlayFab retrieves the player’s entitlement record from Xbox Live, and syncs it with the player’s inventory. Any new items are granted, and any expired items are revoked.

How it Works

This add-on is not needed for player authentication. For authentication, you only need to authorize PlayFab via your game’s settings on XDP. This add-on is only needed for in-app purchase support, and will be used to configure the secret key that PlayFab uses to sync a player’s inventory with Xbox Live.
