C++ Project

This guide assumes you are implementing the Elixir SDK in a C++ project and have already cloned the Elixir SDK plugin into your "Plugins" folder.

Step 1: Prepare Elixir

The first step to integrating Elixir is to assign your SDK public key by running:


It is highly recommended to manage API keys through some sort of persisted settings system, such as the built in Unreal Engine UDeveloperSettings class, as you will find yourself having to frequently switch between development API keys for testing and production API keys for building a release.

Step 2: Initialize Elixir

The second step of Elixir integration is calling the InitElixir function. The function receives a UElixirSubsystem::FCallback.

UElixirSubsystem::FCallback CompleteCallback;
CompleteCallback.BindDynamic(this, &UMyClass::OnElixirInitComplete);

The completion callback can execute any logic that should happen after initializing the SDK:

void UMyClass::OnElixirInitComplete(const bool bSuccess)
    // this code will run after the SDK has either been successfully initialized
    // or an error has been encountered

It is advisable to initialize the SDK as early as possible in your game workflow

The initialization process will take care of the following:

  • Log in the user automatically via provided context from Elixir Launcher (in production) or a freshly generated token (in development).

  • Initialize connection to the Elixir Overlay event buffer

  • Set up a timer to refresh the authentication token automatically in the background

You are now ready to use the Elixir SDK!
