bPerm none

bPermissions 1.8

A build of bPermissions for 1.8 has been released that actually works! This also supports UUIDs, so you'll need to convert your files with /permissions convert

Welcome to bPermissions, a Superperms Manager for Bukkit! bPermissions focuses on being unique from the rest of the Permission managers. It's very simple to set up and use, it's lightning fast, fully featured, and has a great support team!

Since codename_B is now focusing on the new 3.x branch of bPermissions, he has handed over control over 2.x to me (rymate1234).

Some features:

  • bPermissions has a gui client specifically designed to make running a server so easy that you'll forget that you ever used any other permissions plugin. Get it here!
  • bPermissions has a unique command structure, never before seen in a permission manager. It's best used for adding lots of nodes to a user or group from the console or in-game, less typing!
  • bPermissions has everything you would expect from a Permissions manager. Prefix and suffix support, inheritance, per-player permissions, multiworld support, promotion/demotion tracks, and even group priorities for multi-group setups.
  • Note - bPermissions only defines prefixes and suffixes. You need a chat plugin such as bChatManager for them to show up in chat.

Video tutorial!

Thanks to james00000001 for the tutorial


Say you have a user called 'Bob' and you want to put him in the group 'admin' and give him the prefix 'awesome'.

  • /world yourmainworld - selects the world "yourmainworld"
  • /user bob - selects the user "bob"
  • /user setgroup admin - set bob's group as "admin"
  • /user meta prefix awesome - set bob's prefix to "awesome"

You can do the same with groups!

  • /world yourmainworld - again, selects the world
  • /group admin - selects the group "admin"
  • /group addgroup moderator - makes the admin group inherit from the moderator group
  • /group meta prefix &c[Admin] - sets the admin prefix to "&c[Admin]"

Some other commands are as follows

  • /permissions (or /bperms,/bp,/p) - general commands for bPermissions are prefixed by this
  • /permissions import pex - import a pex permissions.yml in the pex folder
  • /permissions reload - reloads your bPermissions files
  • /permissions save - if auto-save is false, this saves your perms
  • /permissions backup - backup your permissions
  • /permissions helpme - for the lazy among you, this spews out some basic permissions files into your folder.

In order to use these commands, you'll need the permissions node bPermissions.admin

Want more commands? We have some others over on the commands page. Check 'em out!

World mirroring

Worlds are mirrored like so:

world_mirroring_to: world_mirroring_from
world_nether: world
world_the_end: world

This duplicates the whole config for that world. Currently there's no way to have just the users or the groups mirrored, stay tuned for an update that adds this!

bPermissions and EssentialsChat

Allow me to put this issue to bed. Essentials Chat + bPermissions works for prefix and color.

This guide is for current users of EssentialsChat and want to use bPermissions along with it.

Players have colored rank prefixes and faction chat modes are also colored. All text can be colored by the players too using color codes such as &c.

bPermissions\world\groups.yml ( code snippet )

default: default
## Peasant ##
    - group.default
    - group.userannouncer
    - group.userauction
    - userannouncer
    - userauction
      priority: '100'
## Citizen ##
    - group.default
    - group.rank1
    - default
      priority: '200'

It has nothing configured for prefix but the group names are important (default, rank1)

Essentials\config.yml ( Code Snippet )

change-displayname: true
#add-prefix-suffix: false
  - chat.color
  - chat.format
  - chat.shout
  - chat.question
  radius: 0
    default: '&8&lPeasant &r&8{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
    rank1: '&8&lCitizen &r&7{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
    moderator: '&e&l[Mod] &r&3{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
    admin: '&c&l[Admin] &r&e{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'

Please direct all other Essentials support to their official support networks.

How do I get support?

First, we highly recommend you go read the FAQ page. If the answer isn't there, there's a few options of support.

  • Visit the #bananacode irc channel on irc.esper.net. Just head there, as your question, and wait for someone to help you. It might be a while before you get an answer, so be patient!
  • You can file a ticket. This is recommended if you don't have the time to hang around in the IRC or you have a bug report. Be prepared to check back to the ticket though, and make sure you attach your bPermissions groups and users yml files to the ticket.
  • Comment on the bPermissions main page.

However you choose to get support, "pls dont use txt spk," and make sure you use actual grammar.

I'm a developer!

If you wish to hook your plugin into bPermissions, please see the Developer Page for more information! If you wish to contribute code to bPermissions, fork us on GitHub!

    New feature coming for 2.12 which will help immensly with manually editing users.ym - the username is now a parameter in the users.yml!

        permissions: []
        username: rymate1234
        - default
          prefix: test

    I also fixed jenkins builds, so you can go grab dev builds of 2.12 now :DDD

    @Hebbie2: Go

    there should be an error in the server log when you run the command - can you give us the error?

    @itsGalaxyHero: Go

    In the video tutorial, it shows use of bChatManager. Do I still need it if I'm using EssentialsChat?

    Everytime I try to select a world it says: An internal error occurred while attempting to perform this command. How do I fix this?

    @BADDAD411: Go

    Find a rankup plugin

    @videodrone81: Go

    Just find a rankup plugin.... ezranks, autorank, ect....

    @MrPufnstuff: Go

    Assuming that you reloaded bpermissions (/permissions reload) or restarted your server to initiate changes, this sounds like a problem. If you didn't do one of these two things after saving your files, then that's probably your problem. It doesn't "automatigically" update when you hit save m8. You also didn't really provide enough information about your problem for it to be solved. Details are always good, because they make whoever is trying to help you have a lot less questions that may become irritating.

    @zizitt: Go

    I dunno the answer to this cuz "/user cmeta" never worked for me.

    Say that I wanted to add then after a day remove a suffix from a player via console.

    What way is the easiest to do this, and how? How should the two commands be formatted?

    So, I was making permissions for my server, when I noticed I was finding it particulary hard to set them up right, I realized I made the accident of trying to set the permissions through commands, then went into the config and made it there instead. I realized (after 10 hours give or take), that the world was only using the beginning of what I had tried to do in-game. Is there any way I can delete/clear the commands set in-game and use the permissions set up in the config?

    Will this affect my separate permissions per world for ranks ?

    What if I have different ranks in different worlds?

    @sakura_blades :

    You can already run 1 command to perform 1 changes. It's at the bottom of the commands page.

    /exec u:tara81 a:setgroup v:owner w:world
