What is the difference between Client Side and Server Side Google API Key options in WPL Settings?
Posted by Steve A. on 13 August 2017 01:25 PM

The Client Side API Key is used for frontend Google Map activity and related functionalities, while the Server Side API Key is for WPL's internal uses of Google Map services (for fetching property pinpoints, etc).

Please note that for the Server Side API Key, you should not set any referrer restrictions (or IP restrictions). Please check the attached image below for an example:

For more info, see this section in the Maps APIs FAQ on switching key type to a server restricted key: https://developers.google.com/maps/faq#switch-key-type

Note: As noted above, we suggest that you don't use IP Restrictions too.
