Question from a developer:
I have an App ID for Photon Realtime - do I need to use the one from the Add-ons page with PlayFab?
The App IDs you get from the Add-ons page for Photon are specifically ones that are already pre-configured to make webhook calls into Cloud Script for room actions in Photon (create, join, leave, etc.). Also, only those App IDs run in the PlayFab account, allowing us to unify billing (and provide the per-100 CCU pricing).
But there's nothing preventing you from using any Photon account you like - there are no incompatibilities between our services. If you choose to use a separate App ID, we can help you with getting yours configured to use the correct Cloud Script webhook calls - just reply to this thread and we'll get you set up with that info. However, please understand that billing for that account will be distinct from PlayFab, as the account would not be running in our account.
