bPermissions 2.x - now under new management

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!

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

    All permissions for bPermissions use a single node? o.O
    I need to allow my Admins to change users' groups but I don't want anyone other than Owner to modify the groups' permissions or anything else. Any plans to make this possible? Otherwise I'll have to go through setting up yet another permissions system again.

    Edit: Nevermind, I won't be using this. The command structure and permissions don't suite my needs.

    Edit: In fairness, I should state that I was able to find a mention of the 'tracks' permission node for the previous version of bPermissions, but for this version those details are quite lacking.

    @VideoGameBlackBelt: Go

    You need to use a world that is active. So lets say my normal world is called world. then to select a world i type "/w world" If my world is called Paradise I type "/w Paradise"

    So this means if you want to select the nether or end its world_nether world_end

    Hope i helped ;)

    (Commands without the """ ofc. )

    It won't let me select a world and when I try it and do /world {world} it doesn't work it just says "Please select a loaded world!" I don't understand? My server is version 1.7.2?

    @sakura_blades: Go

    I am editing /world/groups.yml with mirrors to the other worlds, EssentialsChat, v2.10.7c, And 1.7.10 CB, although this problem still occurred during 1.7.9 Bukkit.

    To be clear, I am NOT using global files, and this might be the problem, however I never had an issue not using global files before. Both of the PasteBin's in my original comment are under the file stance: plugins/bpermissions/world/groups.yml OR plugins/bpermissions/world/users.yml

    I'm starting to think it may be that since the original world file (Not .world/groups.yml, but the literal world file,) that bPerms doesn't recognize that world wanting to have the same permissions.

    @whizkid66: Go

    Since I have NO idea which build you are using, and am only in the understanding that the files you are attempting to use are the bpermissions/groups.yml etc and not the bpermissions/"world"/groups.yml

    There appears to be an issue with the global files working instead of world files.
    As far as prefixes, you have to have a chat system installed for those prefixes to show. bPermissions does not and cannot display those in your chat for you, on it's own.

    Right now, here is what I can tell you... Give us more information on what you're using so we know if it's a version error. Tell us whether or not you are using a chat plugin to even display your prefix/suffixes, and if you are infact trying to use global files to run your permissions, or the individual world files.
    Because at this point in time, I can't make sense of anything you're trying to say except that you can't get bPermissions to work, and there are no chat displays for you.

    If you want to be 100% clear, try typing out the file path:

    • plugins/bpermissions/groups.yml
    • plugins/bpermissions/world/groups.yml

    "Main world file" I am not sure to take that as the global or the file found in "world"!

    Nobody is able to do anything, I will set a member to a certain group, and it still shows them as default. No prefixes are showing for anyone. Only had this problem for a day or so, after I edited our public server down to a point where it's SMP-Private Friendly. So, to be clear, what I edited was:

    - Main World File (deleted world folder in root of server, to generate new one.) - groups.yml (Usually only cut and paste, to remove some of the ranks, as well as inheritance.)

    Yeah I had read that but from this: "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)."

    I wasn't sure if that meant codename_B had a release in mind for his branch, rather than the 2.x that rymate1234 was working on, but yeah I think I'll avoid the risk and start switching soon.

    ""It appears that I need to learn more java before I even attempt to recode bPermissions. It is a large complex plugin, keeping compatibility is a huge task. It will be done eventually, however I cannot give any ETAs.""

    UUIDs are in the works.. Attempts to make it ready are in progress. No ETAs can be given, it's already been stated. You can attempt to find an alternative plugin for permissions or you can wait like the rest of us with hope. ^.^

    Is the 3.x series going to be ready for 1.8?

    Because I'm trying to figure out if I should start transferring permissions to another plugin since the recent updates seem to cause issues.

    Wohoo UUID support would be great, thanks! Make sure you can convert from old versions please.. :)
