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!

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!

    @codename_B: Go

    nope, no global permissions. I have three worlds (world, Exploria, Faerenwell) and both Exploria as well as Faerenwell are inheriting all permissions via the "mirror" feature from the "world" plugins files. So I guess technically I am not using a global setup, but all worlds are mirroring one main world.

    PS, sorry for the late reply, I didn't think you would respond so fast so I went to bed, and I have been sick, so I slept all throughout today.

    Hi there,

    I'm having a problem and was hoping someone could shed some light on it.

    I have bPermissions setup to use single mode. Lets say I have some groups and multiple tracks setup and I set some groups to be allowed to promote along certain tracks.

    However if someone tries to promote someone else who is in a group not in the tracks they are allowed to promote to, such as a higher rank, the user they try to promote will go into the first level of the track they entered, regardless if the user they tried to promote was in a higher rank or a different track.

    This can be used to demote people in higher ranks to the tracks the lower ranks are allowed to use.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this how it works for everyone and just some flaw in bPermissions? How can I prevent this?

    Thank you!

    I'm not sure what is going on here... I don't know if it is the permission plugin, or one of my other plugins conflicting, or a minecraft update thats bugged me... but groups seem a bit... OFF.

    I am not having SEVERE issues, just annoying ones. The groups aren't completely botched, but it seems permission nodes are a bit intertwined. I have basic (default) and citizen groups. I use plugins like stargate and mcMMO. I gave the permission nodes for SOME of mcMMO's skills to basics, and ALL to citizens, but apparently citizens could ONLY use the basic skills, I gave the "/ptp" command permission node ONLY to citizens, but basic members are "ptp'ing" everywhere. I gave the stargate.network.{name} permission node to each of the basic and citizen groups, each with a DIFFERENT network name (to allow stargate use on those specific networks) yet both groups could use ANY stargates they wish.

    Like I said, groups aren't completely botched, many other plugins and permissions seem to be working fine... at least as far as I can tell... (number of homes permission nodes per group, showcase creation group node, book creating node, etc seem to all work ONLY for the given group)

    This is just really annoying because I have a world set SPECIFICALLY for citizen ranked people and higher, but some commands keep ignoring my given permissions so "Basic" members keep getting through the stargates and party teleporting there. I really love both plugins and features, I just want to slightly limit them without completely either removing the plugin or turning off the whole feature.

    I tried updating each plugin, same results, ANY thought on this would be GREATLY appreciated... ALSO, sorry for the super long post, I just wanted to be crystal clear about my problem.

    I had allow-offline-mode set to true in my config file, and I think that caused bPerms to replace my files in my world folder with default ones (overriding my hard work). After setting it back to false (the default), recopying the files, and restarting, it didn't seem like the replacing occurred anymore and all the plugins were seeing the right perms. (I also removed the "meta" stuff I specified in the groups.yml at the same time, grasping at straws, so I dunno if that is part of the issue too)

    Is "allow-offline-mode: true" not supported or I'm I being an idiot and fooling around with a setting I am clueless about? ;P

    Can anyone else reproduce this? [backup those user/group.yml files first! )

    This problem is causing me a lot of grief hopefully you know what's causing it.

    When I change a user's usergroup they do not "Change" to that usergroup until they talk in chat. Any ideas?

  • Avatar of Devil0s Devil0s Apr 14, 2012 at 17:36 UTC - 0 likes

    What is the permission to enable that default or another group can build something??

    EDIT. Solved. I only need to add:

    - bPermissions.build

    @Nexus_Craft: Go

    Have you looked in to Multiverse? It could be that the plugin dev don't support the latest bperms where as Multiverse does and can do all that plugin can and more.
