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!

    @mmuziek: Go

    That's because the plugin isn't saying "hey you're a console, you can't use that"..
    It's just saying "you dont' have perms" because these commands can only be used by a player.
    That's the plugin telling you that, it has nothing to do with bperms or a lacking permissions node for the console.

    What exactly is the command you're trying to run through the console, for the essential warp?
    Is it the "/warp <locationname>" command? Cause that can only be used by a player, NOT the console.. Which would be, why you're getting that message..

    You cannot give a permission to a console, because a console doesn't need a permission.. EVER. If you can't run something through the console without some error message, or nothing happening, it simply just cannot be run through the console.

    @MaurySJ: Go

    it will be released eventually

    @mmuziek: Go

    bPermissions shouldn't affect whether the console can use a command or not, as bPermissions only deals with the permissions of a player, not the console

    <<reply 2512521>>

    no really it says it doesnt have any permissions for this command.
    same happens with essentials warps
    it just says that it doenst have the required permissions
    like its a normal player or something?

    Ok some news about bPermissions. I'll keep this brief

    The next version will NOT be 2.10.9 - frankly these letters are getting rather ridiculous. It will be version 2.12 - this is an update I proposed waaaay back before the 2.10.x mess that never actually happened. Features are:

    • global users.yml! Have all ranks global, but with different permissions in each world!
    • reworked commands

    The commands will be reduced down to 3 main commands - /user, /group and /permissions

    • /user and /group allow you to modify players and groups much like the current /exec commands, except in an easier to remember format.
    • /permissions is exactly as it currently is (for reloading bPermissions, saving the files).

    The new /user commands are as follows:

    /user username set group/prefix/suffix/priority value in world

    /user username add group/permission value in world

    /user username remove/del group/permission value value in world

    /user username show permissions/groups/prefix/suffix in world

    Group commands will be exactly the same, except with /group

    There'll also be bugfixes, of course! :D

    @mmuziek: Go

    Chances are, that's just the way the plugin says "you can't use this from the console". There are quite a few plugins that don't allow many of their commands to be used from the console.

    question. i am using the last version here and the console cannot execute commands from plugins. for example my chestcommands sends a console command and it says you do not have permission for this command in console? how can i add the console to the permissons list

    I'm having an odd problem. I have two mirrored servers(everythings exactly the same, plugin/spigot versions too) however in the second server(only the second server) when I try to mirror my worlds permissions it glitches and strips all of the permissions away. Upon checking the files they're all still there and I'm still in the correct group according to the files. BUT when I do /perm reload it doesn't say that the worlds I tried to mirror are loaded. Un-mirroring the worlds doesn't solve this issue either. I've tested this several times now by deleting the bperms folder and retrying.

    EDIT: Yes, I'm spelling the world names correctly and mirroring from the correct world. I checked in both worlds and have no permissions in either.

    @Jayfixx: Go

    If group manager is so great, why are you on bperms page? :P

    Also, Vault isn't useless. It's only useless if you don't intend to have a seem-less network of various plugins that can speak with one another, without hunting down plugins that are actually coded to hook into one another. That is after all what Vault was coded for, wasn't it? That bridge? That's not useless at all...

    @Clubso: Go

    IF installing vault doesn't resolve your issue, which it may or may not... Many plugins want you to have vault installed to communicate with permissions plugins..
    I'd suggest double checking your server version, with the version of bperms you are trying to run. The server may be registering you're trying to run it, but is unable to due to some miscommunication somewhere. Which is why I had suggested originally, Vault. Because 9/10 that is something that resolves the communication with permissions plugins.

    @Jayfixx: Go

    You can _use_ permissions plugins perfectly fine without vault. bPermissions itself has no dependencies on vault. Vault is used by plugins who need to get data from any of the plugins that vault hooks into. This includes:

    • player groups
    • player prefixes and suffixes
    • any economy plugins
