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

For configurable /promote and /demote tracks, you'll want to use permissions tracks. To read about those, visit this page

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!

    Hi, I am having a hard time getting this to work. So I'll start with the question if this plugin actually does work with spigot 1.10.2 or do I need craftbukkit?

    I dropped the jar in the plugins directory and restarted spigot. The plugin shows up, but does not do anything. I have disallowed commands in the group file. I have set user prefixes, but it al does not show in minecraft

    Best regards, Peter

    Is there any chance we can get proper documentation/wiki?

    For example, I can't find anything about the 'global' folder, and it wasn't there the last time I used bPermissions.

    It would save everyone's time if there was a place we could look at to find info on these types of things.

    Also something weird happens when i try to edit anything when inside my minecraft server using commands. It just keeps repeating at org.bukkit.permissions.PermissibleBase.calculateChildPermissions(PermissibleBase.java:190) [spigot.jar:git-Spigot-c55900f-9af379f] many times, like many times

    @rymate1234: Go

    As a test i made 2 worlds and used the global files for both of them but it does not even seem to work. I had to go and copy and paste the group and user files in to both world. The problem is that nothing in the global files seem to work.

    @zaid4500: Go

    World group files can be used alongside global files. What exactly is the issue you're having?

  • Avatar of zaid4500 zaid4500 Aug 13, 2016 at 01:30 UTC - 0 likes

    Something is wrong when i set use-global-files to true. It just uses world group files

    @JohnSanity: Go

    The folders for each world should generate on their own, you shouldn't have to create them yourself.

    I'm not sure there is a way to specify a world with a space in the name, you could try an underscore in place of the space? IF that doesn't work, maybe it'd be best to replace your spaces in your world name(s) with underscores. :P

    Hey! I need help. I just downloaded bPermissions and I had this very bad problem. Most of my worlds have spaces in them and bPermissions doesn't recognize it even if I put quotation marks and apostrophes. This problem has probably been already answered and if so, please tell me. which page it is on.

    @puckman1971: Go

    Groups.ymls in each world is working as intended, as you may want to make per world changes to a group. I'm not entirely sure why permissions are being randomly added in the per world files, but it shouldn't override the global files.

    User groups shouldn't be reset to the default group - do you have any idea how this occurs?
