bPermissions 2.x - now under new management

bPermissions header thing
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.

New blog!

We have a blog now on tumblr! Any news updates on bPermissions will most likely be posted there :)


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

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!

Example files

Do "/permissions helpme" to have the plugin print out some example files, or view commented examples below!

Promotion tracks

  1. Define tracks in tracks.yml (use the example file as a guide!)

  2. Give people the permission tracks.trackname -- it lets anyone with that node promote people along that track, they don't need bPermissions.admin

  3. Want someone to be able to use all tracks? Give them tracks.* -- it lets someone with that node promote anyone along any track name

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.
  • Watch these videos!

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!

    Oh right, I totally forgot. Yeah, if I can find some spare time I'll make sure to make a commit. Of course, one issue I just though of is, once name changing is in, converting your files to UUID's are gonna be almost impossible, as it'll go to a null UUID if they changed their name :\. This could get real problematic.

    @Qwahchees: Go

    We're open source! If you like you can submit a PR on rymate1234's github with the chances and it helps us a load. rymate1234 was working on a change so it's best to see far he is with that first. Come onto #bananacode on EsperNet if you're interested in talking to us, ping rymate1234.

    I'm an op on a server, and trying to use commands in game. However whenever i use a command i don't see anything pop up in the chat?

    For example I'll say

    "/permissions save"

    and nothing says saved, and it doesn't say unknown command either. No confirmation. Is this normal? it makes it impossible to add people to groups and set perms. All i want to do is get EVERYONE to be able to use the /mvtp world command in multiverse, but this has become a much greater task than expected...

    Can anyone help? or give me a command that will acomplish this? The node is called multiverse.teleport.self.* and multiverse.access.*

    I need to set those two perms available to everyone who joins. Can someone help me please? that's ALL i want to do.

    @rymate1234: Go

    There's already an API to change get UUIDs, I'm sure it won't be too difficult :\

    Okay, I really want this to workout so, if anything I'll write a conversion plugin you can run upon startup. It should loop through all the yml files, and use a regex to get the name excluding ".yml" from the file.

    Then use the AccountsClient Mojang API to retrieve uuid's for each, and rename each file, or rewrite the file, I don't know. But I hope this gives some insight.

    Here's the API: https://github.com/Mojang/AccountsClient

    @CommodoreAlpha: Go

    Well technically it's really easy to support UUIDs - replace all player checks with UUID checks. the hard part is making a converter.

  • Avatar of CommodoreAlpha CommodoreAlpha Apr 05, 2014 at 17:36 UTC - 0 likes

    So... with the whole UUID update coming sometime this May, will there be any gestures of reassurance (not necessarily guarantees) that there will be a version of bPermissions able to support this at around the time of the update?

    Sure, I'd love to include my server IP here. But it's under construction, and I wouldn't want to get sued for players wandering inside and getting hit by a random beam of steel floating about. And no, I doubt plugins would make very good lawyers either. I've never seen a plugin that forced you to sign a contract do so well.

    How can i do it, that a player can break blocks? But the player is not op.

  • Avatar of RemyPas RemyPas Apr 02, 2014 at 22:07 UTC - 0 likes

    I'm searching for a good chat plugin that works well with bPermissions and supports player operated private chat (not rank/group based)

    Does anyone have a suggestion?

    @streetkilln: Go

    /op em (quick but risky =P ) or add wildcards (asterisk) to your nodes.
    If that doesn't work, you'll have to check if an 'admin' node exists for the plugins that you use (consult the plugin's documentation).
