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!

    I have noticed for the past few months i have been getting lots of these in the server logs and the more players online the more rapidly they appear:

    [Essentials] Lag Notice - Slow Permissions System (bPermissions) Response - Request took over 109.439ms!

    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to why or what that means? I have googled it and nothing comes up. Anyone else have this problem or think they know how to fix it?

    if you would like more information or for me to submit a ticket please let me know what you need.

    Read this example: http://pastebin.com/Drz89EGe Which way would be the Best/Fastest to use?

    I cannot update the bPermissions webgui, and therefore cannot fix this.

    I have used this permission plugin since 2011 and have always loved it. However, since UUID came in, I have not been able to update it anymore. Funny but true, I still use bpermissions version dated back to 2013. It works on Spigot 1.8.8 with no problems and best of all, I can manage players with WebGUI. If I go to latest version, WebGUI only show UUID numbers and not actual player name. So my question to the developer is:

    - What happened to WebGUI and Is WebGUI going to be available in the future with option to see real player usernames? This is very important because I don't like manual ingame commands and using WebGUI makes managing server so simple. Should there be way to pull usernames in GUI and match them with UUID in real time...?

    [18:47:30 INFO]: [Essentials] Lag Notice - Slow Permissions System (BPermissions2) Response - Request took over 2,5525.899ms!

    @Ted67942: Go

    /world world /user USERNAMEHERE /user rmperm PERMNODE


    /group GROUPNAMEHERE /group rmperm PERMNODE

    also, if your trying to remove a negated permnode, you dont do /group rmperm ^NEGATED.PERM.NODE

    you do /group rmperm NEGATED.PERM.NODE

    when you add perms it adds them by the name, negated or not. What it does is sets its vaule to TRUE or FALSE. So ^NEGATED.PERM.NODE added to a user or group would just be NEGATED.PERM.NODE with a false value.

    @rymate1234: Go

    Since i have a Co-Owner and he wants us to be practically the same I only gave the Owner one other command. Which is the big tree one Essentials. I don't have any of the permissions that lower ranks have even after adding the ranks to the group thing.
