To add a Workshop MPMission to a dedicated server, the administrator must:

  2. Download it
  3. Check your local MPMissions folder, and copy.
  4. Upload to the remote server and paste in ...\ARMA3 Server\MPMissions

This could probably best be done from the command-line while starting the server, or with the steamCMD app.

Problem is to create a steam credentials file that cannot be read by other community members that have access to our RDP.

It will be no problem for me to add another steamCMD command in our restarter-tool, that upon restart/crash, first checks for a updated workshop subscription, Or just add the required command to the startup parameter, so the server makes this check & download.

Dedicated servers were not able to download workshop content (technology limitation). The new SDK could potentially solve this. We'll hopefully look into it.

Gekon, thanks. Whatever you do, please, please add an option for the admin to rename the mission briefingName so that server admins would be able to determine their own naming formats. Having servers with multiple naming conventions makes them unusable. For example, we have hundreds of coop missions on the Comrades in Arms server, and it's essential to be able to use a single naming convention to manage so many files.
