Arcana Developer Dashboard Users Guide

Estimated time to read: 14 minutes

The Arcana Developer Dashboard allows Web3 app developers to configure user onboarding settings and tailor the blockchain signing experience for an app that integrates with the Arcana Auth SDK.

Developers must first register the app by using the Arcana Developer Dashboard and obtain a unique Client ID that is required to integrate the app with the Arcana Auth SDK.

By default, each newly registered app is associated with a 'Testnet' configuration profile. When the app is deployed, it is set to use the Arcana Testnet.

This guide will walk you through the various configuration options available on the Arcana Developer Dashboard to tailor the Arcana Auth SDK usage. For instructions on how to install Arcana Auth SDK and integrate your application, refer to the Arcana Auth Quick Start Guide.


  • To use the Arcana Developer Dashboard, developers can sign in using one of the supported social login providers or opt for passwordless sign-in.

    • Google
    • GitHub
    • Twitch
    • Discord


Go to and log in using one of the available options.

Welcome screen
Developer Dashboard Login Page

Aggregate Login

The Arcana Auth protocol aggregates multiple login identities for the user across social login providers under a single identifiable Arcana account. This enables developers to log into the Arcana Developer Dashboard through any of the supported login providers and access the same Arcana developer account and app settings.

Register Application

After logging in, the Manage Apps dashboard screen is displayed.

List Registered Apps

Each app registered for a developer account is represented by a card in the Manage Apps screen of the Arcana Developer Dashboard.

Registration Settings

To register a new app, the developer needs to provide the following settings:

  • App name
  • Chain Type: EVM, Solana, MultiversX, Near
  • Default Blockchain
  • Wallet UI Mode

App Name

Add a unique name for the app. It can be edited later. After registration, a unique Client ID is associated with each app name. This Client ID is never changed, even if the app name is altered.

All emails related to a registered app billing or user login will mention the latest app name as displayed in the dashboard. Once an app is deleted, the Client ID is no longer valid. Creating a new app with the same name and registering it with Arcana will result in a new Client ID associated with the same name.

Edit App Name

To edit the name of a registered app entry, use the pen icon. Click Enter in the editable text field to save the changes.

Chain Type

Developers need to decide at the time of registration whether the app will use the EVM chains or one of the non-EVM chains supported by the Arcana Auth SDK.

Non-EVM Chains

When registering an app through Arcana Developer Dashboard, the choice of chain type (EVM, Solana, MultiversX, Near) is final. App developers can't change it later. They can switch the default chain within the same type. For example, a Solana app on Testnet can switch to Solana Mainnet or Solana Dev but not to MultiversX or an EVM chain.

Default Blockchain

The chain marked as default is the one that is selected and displayed in the wallet once the user logs into an app that is integrated with the Arcana Auth.

The default chain can be changed programmatically via the app developer once the user approves switching of the chain. Also, the user can change the default chain anytime by using the wallet UI. Chains can be switched to any one of the ones displayed in the pre-configured list in the wallet UI or in the app chain settings displayed in the dashboard.

Wallet UI Mode

The wallet UI mode setting allows the developers to choose whether they want to enable the built-in Arcana wallet UI in the context of their app or build a custom wallet UI for the app users. Note, this is a one-time setting at the time of registering the app.

By default, Arcana wallet UI is enabled for all registered apps. Selecting Custom Wallet UI option disables the built-in Arcana wallet UI altogether.

Custom Wallet UI

This is a one-time setting. It cannot be changed again later once the app is registered. When selecting the custom wallet UI option, developers must build a custom wallet UI and programmatically wire it to the appropriate JSON-RPC Web3 wallet operations. Also, there are no notifications generated by the Arcana Auth SDK when a custom wallet UI is selected. The developers must add requisite logic and code to get the user approvals for blockchain operations.

Confirm Registration

After providing all the required inputs, click Create to register the app.

Mainnet Deployment

To deploy the app on the Arcana Mainnet, developers need to create a Mainnet configuration profile and obtain a different Client ID. Update the integration code with this Mainnet Client ID. This step is necessary to deploy the app on the Arcana Mainnet.

For more information, refer to the Testnet > Mainnet Migration Guide.

Click Configure in the LHS menu to view and edit the configuration settings.

The following Gasless settings control the establishment of gas tanks for selected blockchain networks, allocating funds in the gas tanks, whitelisting app operations for enabling gasless transactions through the Arcana wallet or third-party wallets.

  • Add Gas Tank
  • Deposit/Withdraw Gas Tank Funds
  • Enable/Pause Gas Tank
  • Whitelist app operations

Account Abstraction: SCW Account

Gasless transactions require enabling SCW user accounts or 'gasless accounts' that are different from the typical EOA user accounts.

Developers must explicitly set up gas tanks per blockchain network to enable paymasters to bear gas fees for sponsored transactions for that specific chain. The gas tanks should have sufficient crypto assets deposited to fund the app user's transactions. Also, developers must whitelist one or more app operations for gasless transactions. Only the gas fees for the whitelisted operations will be paid via the gas tank as long as there is sufficient credit in the gas tank. For all the non-whitelisted app operations, or in case the gas tank assets run out, the transaction gas fees will have to be paid by through the user's smart contract wallet. For details, see how to configure gasless transactions in apps integrating with the Arcana Auth SDK.

Manage Configuration Profiles

Every application registered using the Arcana Developer Dashboard is represented by a single card displayed in the 'Manage Apps' screen, next to the 'Create New App' wizard. Click on the application card to view the application dashboard screen. By default, the application dashboard screen shows application usage details for the 'Testnet' configuration profile and some links to the Arcana Auth documentation.

To view configuration details for an application, use the LHS navigation menu and click Configure to view/edit the application configuration settings as described in an earlier section of this guide.

Each application can only be associated with two configuration profiles, 'Testnet' and 'Mainnet'. Both these configurations are maintained separately and each is associated with a unique Client ID.

App Configuration Settings
App Configuration Settings


By default, all newly registered applications are enabled for using the Arcana 'Testnet'. Developers can view or edit the default configuration settings by clicking 'Testnet' on the application card displayed in the 'Manage Apps' dashboard screen. This will bring up the application dashboard screen with various navigation options in the LHS pane.

After validation on the 'Testnet', the application can be configured to use the Arcana 'Mainnet'. To do this, developers must create a corresponding 'Mainnet' configuration profile.


To use the Arcana Mainnet, the developers must first create a 'Mainnet' configuration profile using the Arcana Developer Dashboard.

A newly registered application does not have any 'Mainnet' profile associated with it, it has to be explicitly created by the developer. The application card displayed in the 'Manage Apps' screen will show the 'Mainnet' configuration as disabled for all newly registered apps. To create a 'Mainnet' configuration profile, the developer must use the application dashboard screen displaying the Testnet profile, use the LHS navigation pane and select the Social Auth settings.

In the social authentication settings screen, refer to the dropdown on the top right next to 'Testnet'. Use this dropdown to select and switch to the 'Mainnet' configuration.

Select Testnet/Mainnet Settings
Select Testnet/Mainnet Settings

When 'Mainnet' is selected from the dropdown, a new 'Mainnet' profile creation wizard gets activated and displays a pop-up screen asking the developer to choose one of the options to create the 'Mainnet' configuration. You can either copy the exact 'Testnet' configuration or create a new blank configuration for 'Mainnet' settings.

Switch to Mainnet Settings
Switch to Mainnet Settings

After the selection is made and the developer confirms, the 'Mainnet' profile is created and automatically registered with Arcana.

Mainnet Client ID

The newly created 'Mainnet' configuration profile is associated with a brand new unique Client ID. Developers must specify this new Client ID while integrating the application with the Arcana Auth SDK and deploying it on Arcana 'Mainnet'.

Copying Testnet Profile

If the developer chooses to create the 'Mainnet' profile by copying the 'Testnet' profile, there is an additional setup required to update the configuration of the authentication provider settings. Once the 'Mainnet' profile is created, click the application configuration in the LHS navigation of the Arcana Developer Dashboard and choose Social Auth section. Then copy the 'Redirect URI' displayed for the 'Mainnet' profile. You need to update this 'Redirect URI` value in the respective social login provider developer console.

Example: Copying Google Profile

If Google is enabled in your app's 'Testnet' profile, then during the configuration of the social login provider through the Google Developer console, the Testnet redirect URI was added. Copy the 'Mainnet' profile redirect URI value from the Arcana Developer Dashboard and update them in the Google Console OAuth settings.

Make sure that you add the 'Mainnet' redirect URI value for the other social login providers that are enabled in the 'Testnet' profile. This is required for enabling your app to use the Arcana Mainnet.

The figure below shows how the 'redirect URI' is different from the Testnet Settings where Google and Twitch were configured and the 'Testnet' profile was copied to create a 'Mainnet' profile.

Switch Profiles

There are multiple ways to switch an application from using Testnet to Mainnet.

  • To switch from Testnet to the Mainnet profile, use the application dashboard screen, and select Configuration >> Social Auth in the LHS navigation pane. Refer to the dropdown next to 'Testnet' on the top RHS of the screen and choose 'Mainnet'. If there is a preexisting 'Mainnet profile, the app is automatically switched to it. You can view the social authentication settings and the assigned Client ID for the 'Mainnet' profile. If there is no 'Mainnet' profile associated with the app, then on selecting 'Mainnet' from the dropdown, the app wizard gets activated and assists in creating a 'Mainnet' configuration profile for the application. Once the profile is created, a new Client ID is automatically assigned and the configuration switches to 'Mainnet'.

    Switch to Testnet/Mainnet Profile
    Switch to Testnet/Mainnet Profile

  • If a 'Mainnet' configuration profile is already created for an application, you can also switch between Testnet/Mainnet configuration profiles by using the 'Manage Apps' dashboard screen. Simply select the application card and click on 'Testnet' or 'Mainnet'. This will bring up the application dashboard screen for the selected configuration profile.

    Switch to Testnet
    Switch to Testnet


Depending upon whether the 'Testnet' Client ID value or the 'Mainnet' Client ID value is used to integrate an application with the Arcana Auth SDK, deployment of the app happens on the respective Arcana Network. "Testnet" usage is not billed but if an application chooses 'Mainnet' while integrating with the Arcana Auth SDK, it will be billed in the forthcoming releases.

Configure Session Type

Choose between persistent and non-persistent session types to manage whether the user must re-login to the app after closing the browser or they are automatically logged in within a specified window of time.

In the Manage Apps screen, select the app card, and click on the configuration profile to view setting details. You will see the app configuration settings dashboard screen. In the LHS navigation, select Configure > Session Management settings.

Session Type
Session Management

You can view and change the session type or the Require login after time setting later as well. Apps that require the user to be immediately logged out automatically, if they close the browser window without explicitly logging out, should choose the default Non-Persistent setting.

Persistent Session

When selecting the persistent session type, specify the 'Require log in after` value. This setting is not required for non-persistent sessions. The specified time determines how long the session persists, allowing users to close and reopen the browser without needing to log in again.

Configuring the Arcana wallet

Arcana Auth SDK allows developers to manage the app user experience for signing blockchain transactions with Arcana wallet.

The user experience with the Arcana wallet is configured programmatically through the alwaysVisible option. Install the Arcana Auth SDK and as part of the integration, add code in the app to create a new AuthProvider instance. Specify the appropriate wallet visibility mode via the alwaysVisible option. See the Arcana wallet configuration guide for details.

Client ID

The Client ID assigned to your application can be found on the top right of the Arcana Developer Dashboard screen.

Monitor Usage

Developers can monitor their registered application usage statistics via the Arcana Developer Dashboard. The Manage Apps screen displays the account-level usage metrics. Application-specific usage details are available on the application dashboard screen.

Account Usage Metrics

The Manage Apps screen displays Monthly Active Users (MAU) for the developer account. This is an aggregate score across all the applications that are registered for a developer account and configured to use the Arcana Mainnet. Any application using the 'Testnet' is not billed and not included in the overall account usage statistic.

App Usage Metrics
App Usage Metrics


The billing data is only applicable for Mainnet usage and will be made available in the forthcoming releases.

Usage per Application

Arcana Network maintains per-application usage statistics separately for both the 'Testnet' and 'Mainnet' configuration profiles.

In the Manage Apps dashboard screen, all registered applications are listed as cards. Each application card displays the 'Total Users' statistic. This refers to the total monthly active application users that are utilizing the Arcana Testnet/Mainnet. To view per application usage details, you need to select 'Testnet' or 'Mainnet' profile and look at the application dashboard screen that displays the following usage statistics:

  • Number of logged-in users

Use the 'Daily' and 'Monthly' tabs to see the respective usage statistics.

Daily/Monthly Usage
Daily/Monthly Usage

You can use the dropdown in the top right of the application dashboard screen to select Testnet/Mainnet usage details.

Testnet/Mainnet Usage Statistics
Testnet/Mainnet Usage Statistics


Arcana tracks the Mainnet app usage in terms of MAU for every developer account. At the end of every month, an invoice is generated. The chargeable amount against the invoice is auto-deducted using the payment method configured by the developer in their profile section.

To begin using the Arcana Auth SDK, the app developers don't need to update the profile details including the billing information. Once the apps consume the free tier of Arcana Mainnet usage, the developer must provide the billing details via the profile section of the Arcana Developer Dashboard. Otherwise, the registered apps will be suspended and users will not be allowed to log in to any app that is registered using the developer account.
