How to get Your Keymaster License for Fivem

Generating your Keymaster License is an easy task which you'll be done with in a matter of minutes. Make sure to follow all the in order.

What is a FiveM License Key

FiveM is a popular modding framework that allows you to run individual servers for Grand Theft Auto V. As a server administrator, you have the full authority to control every aspect of your server. In order to do this, you’ll need to create a FiveM key, which grants you access to the server’s resources and enables you to customize the gameplay environment.

We will walk you through the process of creating a FiveM key and setting up permissions using the FiveM key-based authentication system. By the end, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge to create and manage a thriving FiveM community.


Before we dive into the process, you need to ensure you have the following:

  1. A FiveM server from Rocketnode
  2. Access to the Rocketnode Panel - if you’re a subuser

Register on the Cfx.re Forum

Before you can create a FiveM license key, you need to create an account on the official FiveM forums. If you happen to have an account you can skip this step. Go to the FiveM website (https://forum.cfx.re/) and click on the “Sign Up” button. Fill in the required details, including a valid email address, username, and password or just login with Google or Patreon. Ensure that the email you provide is active and accessible as you need it for verification purposes.
