Shorebird Teams tier and higher allows adding an unlimited number of collaborators to an app. Shorebird free “Hobby” users can upgrade to the Teams tier to add collaborators via a link in the Shorebird console.

Managing Collaborators

Collaborators can be managed on the Shorebird console. To add a collaborator, from your app’s page:

  1. Select the “Collaborators” tab.
  2. Click “Add people”.
  3. Enter the email address of the person you would like to add as a collaborator.
    1. Note that the email address must be associated with an existing Shorebird account.
  4. Click “Add Collaborator”.

Existing collaborators can be removed by clicking the trash icon next to their email address.

App Roles

Roles are per-app. Each account can create Apps tied to that account. Once an App is created, access to that app can be shared. If you have any questions about access control for your app, please do not hesitate to reach out to

App Developer

The Developer role can:

  • Read information for a single app
  • View collaborators on that app
  • Create releases and patches for that app
  • View insights for that app

Developers can be added and removed by any Admin, see below.

App Admin

The Admin role can:

  • Everything a Developer can do
  • Add and Remove Developers for an App
  • Delete Apps
  • Delete Releases Admin permissions cannot currently be modified in the console. Please email us if you need to add/remove Admins from an app.

Account Owner

Only the account owner can create apps tied to that account or change the billing information for that account. When an App is created it is tied to an Owner account. Individual Apps can be moved between accounts (have their Owner changed) by contacting us at

Sharing Multiple Apps

Each app maintains a separate list of collaborators. If you need to share multiple apps with a team, you will need to add each app separately. We plan to add more robust teams support later this year.

Transferring Ownership

We do not currently have an automated way to transfer ownership of an app. However you’re welcome to contact us and we will be happy to help you transfer ownership of an app.
