Region specific permissions

Region Specific Permissions (RSP) allows to add and remove permissions dynamically, using WorldGuard regions as reference. Also useful to limit your worlds to a rectangular or circular zone around an arbitrary center! Currently you need WorldGuard for regions.

Maintenance Phase

Due to timing constraints i might not add much to this plugin, but can keep it updated.

I might implement some features of pex to make this a fully featured permissions plugin, t would be somewhat optional and RSP still would be able to use hooking into other plugins. However that is quite a task and i am not sure if i will do it, or if i want to rely on another permissions plugin, since pex might time out.

  • WorldGuard

Since version 1.1.0 you don't need a permissions plugin anymore to operate RSP.

Compatible permissions plugins:

  • PermissionsEx or
  • bPermissions or
  • Since 0.12.0:
    Vault, linking to another permissions plugin - however it is not guaranteed, that your permission plugin supports adding or removing groups during runtime. Furthermore you might have to alter the RSP settings to achieve compatibility via Vault.
    Should work without adaption (or despite): PermissionsBukkit (RSP 0.12.0)

This plugin actually adds and removes permission groups, either those defined by the permissions plugin or those given in the RSP configuration in the transient-groups section.

Actually RSP has more to it than "just" permission adaption for regions, it also allows to confine your worlds to circular or rectangular areas with arbitrary center, to limit your maps.

See the Configuration link for more specific information and the Troubleshooting link for examples and hints. Both sections are under review and will be updated more or less soon.

    @Aleix16: Go

    Provided RSP works at all for our version of Minecraft:

    Add this to the configuration (if you have already, add-in the entries).

            ignore-perm: test.ignore.test
            # No filter perm used, uncomment to use:
            # filter-perm: test.test.test
                - g_ehome
    # LINKS:
            - pd_ehome
      - essentials.home

    Here the essentials.home permission is added if you are within the world with the name 'world' inside the region with the name 'r_ehome'. Now with the default setup oif your server you need to ensure that players don't have the essential.home permission by default. Of course you can alter the world and region name and add more/other entries.

    WorldGuard does have some support for disabled/enabled commands within their regions via flags, so that might be worth looking up as well.

    Please, could someone help me? I dont know how to use this plugin.. What i Need is that:

    I want to create a region (like a small zone) where you can use a command or you have a permission like "essentials.home", and meanwhile you are in that zone you can tp to your home; but, when you exit from that zone, you lose the "essentials.home" permission, so you cant use the /home command. It's only an example, I hope someone understand me and can help me.. And sorry if you dont understand my english, i'm spanish ;)

    @ZoefyC: Go

    Haven't checked yet. I assume it should work, but it'll be better to test.

    I have some errors with worldguard 6.1, like :

    could not pass event PlayerMoveEvent to RSP 1.9.1

    could not pass event PlayerTeleportEvent to RSP 1.9.1

    I think a question was removed (probably you found the answer).

    RSP does not support any regex/wildcard permissions, you'd have to enter each one individually.

    Concerning simplified ways to express multiple permissions in an efficient way, one could talk about adding something that can be pre-cached (not necessarily strict regex), e.g.

    • someplugin.somerootperm.item.(34|46|112-275)
    • someplugin.skill.* or worldguard.region.flag.*.own <- This probably is not recommendable, and i would not have RSP resolve these at runtime like pex used to do, but instead any registered permissions could be scanned for inclusion.

    @wesnoah3: Go

    You have to insert the world name and region names there instead of TheWrldName and RegionName - then you just append it to the configuration of RSP.

    You can use the paste link on the top and set the content type to YAML and just post the link here, or you use code/YAML tags and paste content there, so i can have a quick look:

    <<code YAML>>
    # Paste your config in here.
