Adding an Allowlist to Your Valheim Server

This article will guide you through the process of adding an Allowlist (Permitted list) to your Valheim server.

Add to the permittedlist.txt

First, you must find the player ID of the player you want to admin. There are two places where you can easily find this. One will be in your server's Console. When a player joins the server, you will see two lines that will provide their ID.

You can also get their ID in-game by pressing the F2 key on your keyboard. In the lower section "Players", you will see their in-game name and their player ID, which we have crossed out in the screenshot.

Now you'll need to add that number to the permittedlist.txt file located in /.config/unity3d/IronGate/Valheim of your "File Manager" in NodePanel.

Remember to Save your changes and Restart your server.

When a player not on the list tries to join the server, they will see in their game client the following message:
