bPerm none


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!

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.

Note that as there's only one (slightly inactive) maintainer at the moment, any support queries may take some time.

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

I'm a developer!

    @AKlarvanto: Go

    yeah, codename_B no longer has the source code for the web gui

    I'll have to produce a new version - most likely it'll be an update to JPanel http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/jpanel/

    I'll get in contact with him and see if I can get access to updating the plugin. I've just tried it with the latest bPermissions beta and it needs a bit of updating to work fully with how users are loaded into the server now.

    codename_B was an author of it. He is no longer available? However, plugin is found at http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/bpermissionswebgui/ You probably know all that but just an FYI

    @AKlarvanto: Go

    only showing UUIDs is probably expected behaviour, as that's how usernames are stored in bPermissions in newer versions.

    unfortunately, it's unlikely that the web GUI will be updated, as I don't have access to the source code for it

    Web GUI is the only reason I'm still stuck with very old version of bPermission. It is so easy to use and manage player permissions. I noticed you have put lots of hard work on getting new bP release out but will GUI be updated as well or is it gone forever? Last time I tested, GUI showed UUID codes and not player names and that made it pretty much useless.

    The Future of bPermissions

    As bPermissions 2.12 development is progressing at a steady pace, I thought that I would do a quick uopdate on my future plans for bPermissions.

    The top priority at the moment is to get a stable build of bPermissions 2.12 out. This will hopfully fix most of the issues people are having with bPermissions. I don't have an ETA for this, however I hope to have it completed in the next couple of months.

    After 2.12, the long term plan is for a large update to bPermissions 3.0. The main feature of this update is that bPermissions will officially support the SpongeForge server mod. This is a new Minecraft server side modding api that was released into beta a few days ago. Like Bukkit, it allows plugin developers to make server side plugins for minecraft, however it differs in that it is made in the form of a Forge mod. This makes it more suitable for servers that include mods.

    Another feature I'm considering for the 3.0 update is the inclusion of an SQL based storage for groups and users. I have in the past decided not to implement SQL based storage due to the large amount of work needed to recode bPermissions to take full advantage of SQL queries. Currently, bPermissions loads all of the data from the groups and users files into an in memory store, wth all changes to groups / users done ingame happening on the in memory store first before being commited to the files upon saving. I am currently investigating ways that I can potentially use SQL databases as a datastore without massively reworking how bPermissions works. If I can find a way to implement it, I will add it as an optional storage backend.

    @Alexf0x2011: Go

    You wanna explain what's going on, so we know what exactly we're helping you with here??

       - assassination.*
        - ^group.erp
        groups: [erp]

    Don't put a group in "groups" like this, if you're just going to try to take away the permissions for it in the first place. First of all, it doesn't work that way negating a group like that.
    Secondly, "Groups" is intended to be the group of permission nodes THIS group inherits. You're trying to create redundancy here.. Don't..
    Thirdly, you have to list after "groups" don't put it in brackets.

        - wayward.chat.ch.talkin.erp
        - wayward.chat.ch.listen.erp
        - wayward.chat.ch.mute.erp
        - wayward.chat.ch.join.erp
        - ^group.default
        - default

    Again, you're giving this group an inherited groups permissions, then you're trying to take away with a negated permission of that group. Which doesn't work anyway... Either grant them the inheritance or leave groups empty...
    Simple as that.

    ALSO, from F.A.Q page...

    Q: Is there a '*' node in bPermissions?
    A: There is not a '*' node in bPermissions. As the wildcard node is not supported in the Bukkit permissions API by default, we do not support it. Though, if a plugin supports it, you will be able to do "plugin.node.*"

    One or two of your groups are trying to use * as a permission. DO NOT.
    It doesn't work.. bpermissions does not auto grant anyone with a * permission node, all permissions.. Take it out...

    What's the syntax to exclude a command?


    - ping.* (exclude) ping.reload
