Steam Authenticator for SilverStripe 4

When a user logs in via Steam, this module will check to see if a Member with the users SteamID already exists. If it doesn't it will create it as a regular user and log them in immediately.

If you're an admin, it's essential that you manually add your 64-bit Steam ID if you wish to be able to log into the administrator panel via Steam


Installation is supported by composer only

composer require zander/steamauth ~1.0
  1. Add these lines to your /mysite/_config.php
// add this after your namespace or use FQCN instead
use SilverStripe\Security\Member;
use Zanderwar\SteamAuth\Extensions\MemberExtension;
use Zanderwar\SteamAuth\Extensions\PageControllerExtension;

  1. Create a new page through the CMS using the SteamAuth Page Type. You should also hide this page from the menu and search via the Settings tab as it has no frontend purpose beyond validating the Steam Authentication

  2. Create a steamauth.yml configuration file in /mysite/_config.php

  steam_api_key: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ123456789
  validate_url: "http://{{HOST}}/steamauth/validate"

{{HOST}} will automatically be replaced with and steamauth should point to the SteamAuth Page Type url you created earlier

Extension Points

  • onBeforeMemberCreate($steamId)
    • This is handy if you wish to whitelist specific players or my intention for this was to only allow players who have joined the game server previously access to the site
    • Passed the 64-Bit SteamID
    • If the member already exists however, this extension point will never be reached.
  • onAfterMemberCreate($Member)
    • Passed the created Member object as reference
    • If the member already exists however, this extension point will never be reached.
