Your Mendix Profile is your main point of contact with members of the Mendix community. It displays your activities on the Mendix Platform and details about your background. To get more involved in the Mendix community, your profile is the best way to start.
You can access your Mendix profile by clicking your picture in the top-right corner of the Developer Portal and then selecting See Your Profile.
Your profile header displays a quick overview of information about you. Your Mendix experience in level and points, your number of credits, and your number of connections are all found here. You can also select up to four featured badges to display your progress on the Mendix Platform. If you have a certificate from the Mendix Academy, this will also be displayed. The Personal Info card presents other information.
You can change these details in the Settings.
3 Overview & Stats
Your profile opens to the Overview tab, which shows you at a quick glance how you are doing on the platform. You can see the following:
- Badges in progress and the next badges to work towards
- Assigned challenge
- Personal information
- Position on the leaderboard
The first profile card below the header presents your Stats, which are your points divided between Mendix products and activities:
Don’t get bummed out about a low number of points, because everyone in the Mendix community started like that, even our Expert developers! There are plenty of opportunities to gain more points and climb the Leaderboard.
In addition to the Stats chart, on the Overview tab you gain an overview of your Badges. These badges represent your achievements and progress on the Mendix Platform. You can see your Badges in Progress as well as Next Badges. The badges are color-coded based from green (least rare), to blue, purple, and orange (most rare).
To see all your badges as well as the badges you can work towards, click View all to go to the Badges tab of your profile. On that tab, you can select up to four badges from the Earned badges section to make visible in your profile header by clicking Select as featured.
In the Earned badges section, you find the badges you have completed. If the badge is a multi-level badge, only the highest completed badge is shown.
The percentage on the card of the Badges in progress shows how far you have come to earn that particular badge. If the badge is a multi-level badge, only the highest completed badge is shown, so don’t get distracted while earning it!
The Challenge card presents a featured challenge you can complete to gain credits. You can use the credits in the Mendix Shop to order low-code t-shirts or other Mendix swag. Some challenges are going to be easy for you, whilst others might be harder to complete!
Click View All to go to the Challenges tab of your profile. This tab presents more details on the challenge steps, the time left, and how many credits you can earn with them. You can complete these activities in any order you like.
When you complete a challenge, click Claim Credits to claim the Mendix credits. You can then spend your credits on cool items in the Mendix Shop.
One of the greatest strengths of Mendix is our awesome developers community, and the Connections card is the perfect place to start connecting to other Mendix developers. When you get an invitation to connect, you can check out their profile and decide whether to accept or ignore it.
You can also see a list of people you may know so that you can add further connections to your profile. To connect with someone, click the plus icon to send an invitation.
Clicking View All on the card will bring you to the Connections tab of your profile. On this tab, you can invite friends and colleagues to Mendix in two ways:
- Share URL – copy the personalized invite link and share it directly
- Send Invite – send someone a Mendix invite by entering their email address
This card on your profile presents your points and ranking for the last 30 days:
Clicking View All takes you to the Leaderboards page, where you can view leaders per category, for the whole Mendix Platform, or for your company only.
You can climb the leaderboard by earning points through various activities on the Mendix Platform. For example, let’s say you have some time to spare while your app is deploying. You get a cup of coffee and check out the [Mendix Forum]. One questions pops out because you came across a similar problem a few weeks back. You decide to help the community member and post an answer to their question. Not long after, the author marks your answer as accepted. Boom! 15 points right there.

To add an app to your portfolio, click Add Project, which will open the editor. There are tips in the editor for what you should put in each field. All the fields in the editor are required before submission.
If you cannot finish your portfolio entry or do not want to publish yet, click Save as Draft to finish it later. The draft will be visible only to you in the Portfolio tab for further editing.
On the Activity tab, you can see a list of the last 20 public events for your badges, Marketplace, and Forum activity.
The sidebar menu will take you to My Activity Overview in your profile settings, where you can find more details about your other platform activity.
You can edit the information on your Mendix Profile by clicking the Settings cog icon. The settings page has a sidebar menu that allows you to edit the sections described below.
10.1 General Information
In this section, you can upload your profile image and fill in your personal details
Under Contact, you can select how much information you want to receive from Mendix:
- Receive daily digest – disabled by default
- Receive updates for threads in which I am active – enabled by default
There is also a link to Mendix Support if you need to perform certain account actions that require their assistance.
10.2 Work Experience
Here you can tell the Mendix community about yourself and your work experience. Let everyone know your area of expertise by filling in your Industry Experience and Skills. You can also let the community know if you are looking for a job or an app to contribute to.
Here you can connect your social accounts for Meetup, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
You can change your password in this section. By default, you are requested to change your password every 90 days. Only a Mendix Admin can change this.
10.5 API Keys
In this section, you can create and view the API keys that external applications can use to connect via the Mendix Platform APIs on behalf of your user account. An API key created here allow apps using it to act on behalf of the user who created the key, which means the apps will have the same privileges as the user who created the key. An API key allows you to execute operations that need authentication without a password.
For example, you can use an API key to perform scripted operations on your application model with the SDK.
To get a Mendix API key, click Create New API Key and follow the instructions.
Make a note of the API key, as it will only be shown once.

In this section, you can merge your accounts and select your profile visibility.
10.7.1 Merging Your Accounts
With use of the Mendix Profile, you can merge your old Mendix account(s) into your current Mendix account. This action combines all your points, certifications, and achievements to support you as you clim the leaderboards or on your way to the Expert certification.
Before merging, make sure your profile is public and that you logged in with the right email address. Enter the email address you want to have merged into the logged-in account, then send the merge request.
We’ll take things from there!
Once the old account has been merged into the new account, you no longer have access to the apps of your old account. With your new account, you will need a new invitation to those apps to gain access. Adding your new account to the relevant apps before the merge is recommended.
With the merge, the accounts are only combined. The old account is not deactivated from the Mendix Platform. That should be done by a Mendix Admin.
10.7.2 Selecting Your Profile Visibility
A banner will be present if you have not made your profile public to the Mendix community. You can make it public by clicking Make this profile public.
Be sure to do the following to make your profile public:
- Add an avatar
- Enter a Function
- Confirm if you are looking for a job, a project, both, or neither
- Enter a Summary
- Add at least 1 Skill
- Add at least 1 Industry Experience item
To make your public profile private again, click Make this profile private.
