LoginWithEmailAddress

Signs the user into the PlayFab account, returning a session identifier that can subsequently be used for API calls which require an authenticated user. Unlike most other login API calls, LoginWithEmailAddress does not permit the creation of new accounts via the CreateAccountFlag. Email addresses may be used to create accounts via RegisterPlayFabUser.

Request Details

Email address and password lengths are provided for information purposes. The server will validate that data passed in conforms to the field definition and report errors appropriately. It is recommended that developers not perform this validation locally, so that future updates do not require client updates.
