The Microsoft Xbox Live Tooling API provides a way to:

  • Reset a player's data in test sandboxes. Data includes achievements, leaderboards, stats and title history.
  • Manage a title's global storage in test sandboxes.
  • Manage a title's Xbox Live configuration.

To get access to Xbox Live services you must be a managed developer, enrolled in the ID@Xbox program or participating in the Xbox Live Creators Program. To learn more about these programs, please refer to the developer program overview.
