Step 0 - First Steps

1. Download your resource from FiveM’s Keymaster.

2. Unzip the folder and place this folder in your server's resource folder.

3. Add the resource to your server start config (server.cfg): ensure cd_identity. If you are using a framework, it must be placed anywhere below your framework resource e.g., es_extended, not above.

ensure es_extended
ensure cd_identity

Step 1 - Fxmanifest

Depending on your framework and dependencies, you may need to make some changes inside the [cd_identity/fxmanifest.lua]. We have made this easier by commenting on the lines you possibly need to change.

Step 2 - Configure Resource

You MUST read all configurable options inside the [cd_identity/configs/config.lua] file and configure them to suit your server's needs. Please read the ”commented out help text” at the end of each line so you can understand what each config option does.

The most important sections are the options under the Framework and Important sections at the top of the config.lua. Everything else is optional.

Step 3 - SQL Database

You MUST import the SQL file to your database. This SQL file is located inside theREAD_ME_AFTER_PURCHASING folder; the file is named SQL_main.sql. Watch this video if you are unsure how to do this HeidiSQL / PHPMyAdmin.



Chat Commands

These chat commands can be renamed and/or disabled in the Keys and Commands section of the [configs/config.lua].

The exact usage for each command will be displayed in the chat suggestions when using the commands in-game.




If enabled, this will allow you to show your id card to the closest player by. If no players are nearby, you will see your own id card.


This will show your id card to the closest player who NOT in a vehicle (useful in traffic stops for when you want to show your id card to an officer outside your vehicle instead of your passenger).


(Test Command) This is a test command which opens the passport UI.


Please check out our Troubleshooting Guide before contacting our support.

🔔 Folder Name Make sure the name of the folder is cd_identity.

🔔 Encrypted Files Do not edit the encrypted files in any way.

SQL Default Value?

eg., if you see an error similar to this example when inserting an SQL query into your database - “BLOB/TEXT column 'cd_identity' can't have a default value”.

✔️ You can use “VARCHAR(256)” instead of “LONGTEXT” in the SQL query.

SQL Unknown Column?

eg., if you see an SQL error in the server console similar to this example - ER_BAD_FIELD_ERROR: Unknown colum 'cd_identity' in 'where clause'.

✔️ You are missing one of the required database columns. The SQL file can be found in the "READ_ME_AFTER_PURCHASING" folder.


If you see an error code not listed below, please open a script support ticket in the Codesign Discord.

021454 - The server event (cd_identity:CacheIdentityData) which caches a player's data for the id card has not been triggered.


Files Changed

Not every update requires you to replace the whole folder. We do this because we understand it's a pain to redo the configs for every update.

  • All Files - This means you should delete your old cd_identity folder, download and add in the latest version, reconfigure the configs folder and restart your server.

  • All Files Except config.lua - This means you should do all of the above (in the All Files section) but additionally make a backup of the config.lua file and replace the new config.lua file with the one you made a backup of.

  • Specific Files - This means you can copy and paste the SPECIFIC new files over the old ones and restart the server.

Update Type

On rare occasions, you are forced to update to the latest version. Mostly due to authentication updates where the old versions will no longer work.

  • Mandatory - This means you MUST update to this new version, or the old versions will no longer work.

  • Optional - This means it's completely your choice whether you wish to update to the latest version. But we do not offer support for old versions for obvious reasons; they are old.

Skipping Updates

If you are attempting to update to the latest version but have skipped previous updates, you should update all files just to be safe. For example., let's say you are currently on v4.0.1, you did not update when v4.0.2 was released, and now v4.0.3 is released, and you want to update; you should always use the “All Files” update method.
