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!

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

    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.

    I'm recoding the internals - commands and configs will stay the same

    @DebraHere: Go

    Yes, please keep /exec .... we use that a lot. Granted we could get used to the new commands, but exec makes it pretty simple for us. I can include a world to do specific worlds, i can exclude it to do a global change, etc. I dont use any of the other commands

  • Avatar of DebraHere DebraHere Jul 10, 2014 at 16:36 UTC - 0 likes

    please keep the /exec command in 2.12.

    I have a lot of this in my buycraft for ranking and giving individual users permissions and removing permissions from users.. after the donation time is up.

    Ok everyone.

    I'm gonna be honest now and say i honestly have no clue why bPermissions is so buggy.

    The 2.10.8 beta was a complete guess at the cause.

    I'm going to start a recode soon - hopefully it doesn't fail miserably :/

    EDIT: recode will have UUID support :p

    It breaks randomly at times when editing the files and it crashes the server, when people join CPU load goes to 100% and everyone times out. Is there any way to change global settings with commands? Since you can only do per world settings in game.

    Im assuming there will be some method of converting existing users in the users.yml file into UUIDs?

    We are starting to look at all our plugins to see if there are UUID updates for them. I didnt see any indication as to whether the current 2.10.8 beta has UUID support or not or whether there was going to be a way to convert past data. Sorry if this has been answered already.

    i have a question and a bug report, first /user cmeta suffix dosnt do anything..i set a users suffix with /user meta suffix &6[&cHero&6] and when i tried to remove it with /user cmeta suffix..it did nothing and i still have my suffix, am i doing this wrong or does it just not work atm? And also how do i add suffix's with one command (the /exec command) ? i tried /exec u:Veltzkree a:setsuffix v:&6[&cHero&6] w:Spawn but it dosnt seem to do anything? am i doing it wrong?
