How to Get a Steam Web API Key for Your CS:GO Server

In order to use Workshop maps, you will need to provide a Steam Web API Token. This is used to look up the map and download it to your server.

  4. Your key will be shown in the Key text field


  1. Login to your Control Panel.
  2. Click on the FilesConfig Files tab on the left.
  3. Open the CSGO Server Settings configuration file.
  4. Add your key to the Steam Web API-key option.
  5. Press the Save button at the bottom of the page and Restart your server.
