EVE, Steam and alleged EVE API issues
I wanted to post this here as I've seen a lot of topics/comments steering people away from buying EVE Online via Steam and citing the inability to get player account API keys on Steam purchased EVE Online accounts.

This is incorrect information and I wanted to post this here in case any others are in doubt or wish to see the source of this:


Enjoy, kill you later.

Why dont you suck a ♥♥♥♥♥, if you are not going to tell me how to get my api if i have a eve account true steam.
TLDR dont get your eve true steam it is dis-functional.

The api management page doesnt reconises the steam id account name, nor does it registers my toons name.

its not my pass word either as when i request pasword the names or id code isnt found.

LOL. You're replying (with maximum salt I might add) to an informational post from over three years ago. I wasn't responding to you. I don't even know you.

There are multiple posts in a wide variety of places discussing how to get api info. Given that Eve rewards those who try to find answers themselves I'll leave you to it.

Good luck.

Ow i know how to fix it and its stupid and cumberson, salt sure if after 3 years they still cant give a straight awser or just fix the problem in the first place.

So i state my statement again, do not use steam to create a account because it is disfunctional just like one would exspect from ccp.

@LT drone: it functions normally for everyone mate. So long as you use the correct login when prompted to authenticate (in Steam or FB users case it will be clicking Steam/FB icon and filling in the details on Steam/FB end before proceeding to API management)

Here is an image of what Steam login button looks like: https://support.eveonline.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/201580812/STEAM_Login.png

oke i take it back it works, now that im logged in true steam on another tab the button actually worked, Still the link provided was not clear about this detail.

I tried logging in with my steam credentials and the login would not accept them as my details are the same with my old account it would simply log on to the old one instead of my steam linked account.

It is still a big hassle to having to log on to a external site to obtain the api and the link provided still has zero information provided to solutions.

"in the normal manner by logging in with their steam credentials the same way that they would access the Account Management page.."

This does not says press the green "icon" that is totally unreconcilable and unknown to be a log in button and to my knowledge is only used on the eve website as i never seen it before, it say login with the credentials ^^ in the normal manner, clicking on the steam icon is not the normal manner i thought those icons were purely decorative and never clicked them.

I absolutely did not expected functionality from ccp so i simply never even considered pressing them as i thought they were display icons only and started to fill in me details in the fill out sections provided instead.

Maybe add the word Or to the "log in" (with) <steam/facebook icon> OR "log in with" to further define and accentuate those icons being a actual functionality LIKE ANY OTHER WEBSITE DOES.

ps the link provided has zero mention about a steam icon. It has 3 paragraphs saying nothing at all that could have been replaced with: Want your api? click this! https://support.eveonline.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/201580812/STEAM_Login.png

I have several EVE accounts going back to 2004, as many of us do. I have one STEAM account and it is and has been the most PITA to deal with.There is no advantage to joining EVE via steam. Especally since FTP is live. I do not recommend people join EVE through steam.You can always launch via steam without joining here.
