    Plugin Authors: How to hook into Permissions

    Due to @TheYeti being busy in RL for now, I have created a new thread for Permissions 3.x. TheYeti is still part of the Permissions team.

    Permissions... Reborn.
    This is a continuation of the work that was originally done by Nijikokun. All original credit goes to them as without their work this plugin would not have been possible. This plugin does not provide any commands or additional functionality beyond what is described in this post. That means that you need another plugin to provide colored names, chat prefixes, and op commands such as /give and /time.​

    The Permissions Team

    The team consists of myself @rcjrrjcr and @TheYeti currently with contributions from @Nijikokun as well on occasion. There are also several other members of the community who frequently assist with providing code changes, bug fixes, patches, support, feedback, and beta testing. Special thanks to @flames and the Dynmap & Wormhole X-Treme teams for the hosting of Permissions on their Jenkins server.

    What's new in 3.x?

    Taken from the GitHub page:
    1. In-game commands. For a long time, users have been pestering, nagging, demanding and/or screaming for an way to manage Permissions via commands. Now, in 3.0, in-game commands are available to manage permissions and groups.
    2. SQL storage. This allows web interfaces to manage Permissions by updating the SQL database Permissions uses.
    3. Promotion/demotion tracks. With a simple command, users can be promoted/demoted along a preconfigured track, allowing RP servers with ranks to promote the player along a class track and other possibilities.
    4. Multigroup.
    5. Weightage. Plugins are able to compare users via their weight, which is inherited from their groups. For example, SlapPlugin can check if Player A is higher-weighted than Player B when A tries to slap B (Not IRL, obviously).
    6. Improved world mirroring. Config files are now split into a group file and a user file. Also, by editing storageconfig.yml, you can configure the mirroring of entire worlds, or just its users/groups. You also do not have to create files for worlds that mirror another world. Also, two different worlds can use different storage types, like YAML and SQL.
    7. Global permissions. Instead of having to resort to cross-world group inheritance, now all worlds inherit groups and users from the global permissions file. Also, the inherited groups/users can be overridden via editing the specific world's file.
    Upgrading from 2.x to 3.x

    I have written a guide on GitHub. This demonstrates how to convert 2.x-style configs to 3.0. The YAML-to-SQL converter are still in testing, but it can be downloaded from here. It's written in Perl. @Zgred has created a web version of the script located here. @omgneeq is working on an Web UI for SQL databases (Sorry about the previous statement that he was making a converter.)​

    Install (open)
    For the admins

    In case you missed the link above, the Setup Guide on GitHub will help you quite a bit

    Samkio has updated his tutorial for P3:

    First thing that you will need to do is download the plugin. Place it in your plugins/ folder and unzip it. This should create the folder Permissions and a Permissions.jar file in your plugins folder. Next, go into Permissions/ and create a folder named the same as your world. So if your world name from is Foo you will need to create the folder plugins/Permissions/Foo. You MUST rename it to whatever your world's name is or it will not work.

    Note, if you have your server maps all saved into a single directory then the initial setup will be somewhat different. Say your maps are arranged in the main directory like so: bukkit/mapfolder/world1, bukkit/mapfolder/world2, etc. Then inside of the plugin/Permissions directory you will need to create a folder called mapfolder and inside of that put the directories containing users.yml and groups.yml in there.

    Next, you will need to go in and add yourself to the users, just replace the user that is in there with your name. Make any other modifications that you need to. While making modifications make sure that you do NOT use tabs. These will break the YAML format and cause issues. Instead, each indent should be four spaces. If you want people who aren't in the Admin group to be able to reload the permissions plugin you need to give them 'permissions.reload' permissions within the config file.

    Permissions gives server admins great control, mostly in-game reloading. More info about commands can be found here.

    FAQ (open)


    [Q] What is with the version numbers? I can't keep up, it seems like every time I look there is a new version!
    [A] I use the GNU versioning system for my version numbers. So what this means is the version number should be read as Major.Minor.Revision. So for version 2.5.2 this would mean it is the 2nd Major version, the 5th Minor release in this version, and the 2nd revision. I tend to release bug fixes and anything that doesn't add functionality or will not break things as revisions. So generally you should be safe with just watching the major & minor numbers and only getting the revision if it fixes a bug specific to you. Technically 2.5.2 should have been released as 2.6 as it did add functionality, but this was below even a minor change so I released it as a revision.

    [Q] I am getting an error that it can't pass BLOCK_PLACED or BLOCK _BREAK events to Permissions. Fix it!
    [A] That's not a question. The reason why it can't place these is probably because the syntax of your Permissions file is all whacked out, or it is a different world and you don't have a config file for that world.

    [Q] What am I suppose to name the config file?
    [A] You need to name it the same as your world. So if you look in at "level-name" you will see a world name there. Rename your config file to the same thing as that. Make sure you keep the .yml extension at the end.

    [Q] Permissions are broken. Why can no one use commands? Why am I not an admin?
    [A] First off, make sure that your formatting is correct. Look at the format that the default config file uses. Yours should look like that. Do NOT use tabs. Use 4 spaces (IE. " " <-- Four of those things.). Also, whichever group you give the permission '*' to, do not have that group inherit permissions from anyone else. That is called overloading and it will break things. Also, this.

    [Q] Which one am I suppose to download and unzip to install this?
    [A] Download the main package, not the JAR only. Unzip the ZIP file. The JAR only downloads are simply there for people who are UPGRADING and do not need the default config file.

    [Q] I have done all of this and this doesn't work! I'm going back to GroupManager!
    [A] Well, there is probably the problem. Make sure that you delete EssentialsGroupManager.jar and EssentialsGroupBridge.jar as these don't play well with Permissions and will cause headache.

    [Q] When are you going to add <blah> <feature/command> into this already? You suck! Do what I want NAU PL0X!
    [A] Feature requests should be posted on the GitHub tracker. Stupid suggestions like adding teleportation functionality and other less ludicrous stuff will be rejected.

    Credits (open)

    Nijikokun - Without their original work this plugin would not be possible.​
    All of the members of the community that regularly provide support in this thread for Permissions​
    Rigby, Kainzo, DThielke, GoMySQL, sk89q, RightLegRed - For hanging out with me in IRC, tons of testing, and pushing me to improve on the code constantly and make changes to make this plugin constantly better and better, and in general being entertaining.​
    Everyone else on here and in IRC who provides support, feedback, assistance, plugins that have continued to support and integrate this, and in general makes my life a bit easier, THANK YOU!​

    I would like to thank Joy , jamesg and omgneeq for staying in #permissions for long periods of time to test out 3.0, and help me find many coding mistakes I made, patiently waiting for the next build while I fixed the bugs. I appreciate SvenBrnn 's and GoMySQL(Geoff Winans on this forum) 's help that allow me to design and code the SQL interface, and the HeroCraft coding team for providing support and some priceless IRC quotes (Dgco). Also, I would like to thank Lycano for helping me in many different aspects. Last but not least, I would like to thank Nijikokun and TheYeti for developing P2, which was one of my core plugins when I was still a 14-year-old server admin that didn't understand Java, and was the base for 3.0. Without these people, 3.0 would never be possible.​

    If after reading through all of that you are still having issues do one of two things. If it is a provable bug, and you have things like screenshots or copies of startup, steps to reproduce, your craftbukkit build and the version this is running along with your config files then submit the bug on the issue tracker. If it is general help or support you are needing then post a reply to this thread and someone will try to help you.

    as of 3.1.6 I believe he 'simplified' track, I'm not sure what the new syntax is, I haven't checked the wiki recently. rcjrrjcr said he was going to update it at some point

    edit: @Techykid3 where is your track located? because it should be at the bottom of your groups.yml if it's not

    It is at the bottom, all the way at the bottom.

    And for my server I need that new syntax. Is there a way to find it?

    I've read most of everything posted about 3.x permissions, but I can't seem to find anything on how to copy one worlds permissions to the other. Global users/permissions doesn't seem to work. I used to have a main world with all the users and groups in it, and 10 other worlds that directly copied from the main one. Is this feature not working correctly, or it it nonexistent? Any helpful links or explanation would be greatly appreciated.

  5. Offline


    What do you mean with directly copied ? Look at the Wiki of the Permissions after the storageconfig.yml. It would be enaugh, to tell Permissions, that you have 1 Main World and all other Worlds should use the Permissions made in the Main World. This is possible with the storageconfig.yml.
    For me the global Perms aren't working, too. But so far, I'm still using v3.1.5b, because v3.1.6 has a BIG mistake! If you use /pr Playername w:World parents add w:World Groupname, it gets added, but the User is still in the Group he was before. Okay... i know this was so with v3.1.5b also, but there is a slight change made there. If you add with parents add..... the new Group takes place under the default group. In v3.1.5b it is so, that the new group takes place above the default group.

    This is probably just me being stupid + its late at night but im having a problem. I have 2 worlds (well 3 but that doesnt matter): world and creative. I have a plugin installed and it only works with players having the "creativebuild.cb" node. Now i want every player to have that in the creative world but not i the normal world. I have read the examples on github but im still having trouble with it. help :)

    do you have your users.yml and groups.yml files set up for each world or are you using the globalusers.yml and globalgroups.yml? if you're using the ones for each world, just add that permission node into the group those players are in for the creative world. if it's in the global ones it's a bit trickier I'm guessing, and I don't know what to do at that point, sorry.

    Im getting alot of overload messages what should I do what build should I use for bukkit and permissons becouse when I remove permissons server runs just fine. Please Help its getting really anoying when it crashes.

    This is what I get when I start up my server. I get a shit load of error messages, and I don't know why. All of it appears to me to be just random gibberish, and I have no idea what it is talking about. The GUI window I'm using to run the server is called Crafty.

    <Edit by Moderator: Redacted filesmelt url>

    What is the problem(s)? The only other plug-ins I am running currently are Big Brother. Not sure if this helps, but I have a Windows Vista 64 bit computer. I'm pretty sure I have my global permissions set-up correctly, but when I go in-game (in the global permissions it says I'm in the group admin...) and I also tryed re-opping myself, but it still won't let me place or break blocks.

    My server has over 6,000 users but I small sample:

    Each of the worlds has a groups.yml

    And a users.yml which auto adds people that go to that world.

    If you see any mistakes/errors/derps, thanks in advance.

    So are you saying globalusers and globalgroups don't work, and I have to set the permissions for each world?
  15. Offline


    Thanks for the reply! im using global permissions but maybe i should switch to individual permissions then.

    If loading from MySQL, how can I get Trakcs to work? Additionally, is it possible to mirror the parents of a member in different worlds? Example: Having Nether and Survival worlds, is it possible to set it up so that you only need to add them in a group in Survival-world, instead of both? (But still that the groups in each world, of course with the same name, have different permission nodes?)

    if a group has the - '*' you shouldn't inherit any permissions from anything else, as it could cause some funky issues, especially if you inherit another - '*' (like Owner inheriting Administrator).

    I believe you can get away with it as such:
            type: YAML
                PixelArt: worldspawn
                pvpBuild: worldspawn
                ModernWorld: worldspawn
                Freebuild: worldspawn
                Aether: worldspawn
                Nether: worldspawn
    I'm not 100% sure on this since I haven't set it up myself yet, but for the world's groups.yml you'll have to import from the globalgroups.yml, I bookmarked a post on it earlier. (many pages ago haha)

    your "permissions:" item is kinda funny. I'm not sure if it's case sensitive or not, but a few of them have a capital I in them, may want to change it all to lowercase just to be sure.

    I followed the directions completely and triple checked my group.yml to make sure i had the tracks right. I have experience with yml so i know that's not the problem. I cannot promote my users in game. This is something I really would enjoy having for my server. Also on the off-topic, is there a way to give users permissions for promoting other people to a rank lower than their own? I want my Smods to be able to promote people to mods and my admins to promote people to whatever.

    well maybe someone can give me a hand here, because I"m about at my wits end, lol. I've been trying to setup the permissions for Citizens but I'm failing horribly bad here.

    and my config file

        default: true
            prefix: '&2'
            suffix: '&f'
            build: true

            suffix: '&f'
            build: true
          - '*'

    move everything under the group name (builder and admin) over to the right by 2 spaces.

    edit: scratch that. use this instead:
            default: true
                prefix: '&2'
                suffix: '&f'
                build: true
                - 'citizens.use.trader'
            default: false
                prefix: '&b'
                suffix: '&f'
                build: true
                - '*'
    the issue was for builder permissions you had [] as well as the citizens node, [] makes it look like nothing is there then it expects something else on the line the node was on.

    there's a permission node "permissions.demote.<track>" where <track> is the name of the track you've created. Using that they can demote anyone currently in that <track>. there's a separate node for promoting along the <track> (permissions.promote.<track>)

    as for in game commands, I'm not sure what they are

    still didn't fix it, new config file

          default: true
              prefix: '&2'
              suffix: '&f'
              build: true
          permissions: []
            - 'citizens.use.trader'
          default: false
              prefix: '&b'
              suffix: '&f'
              build: true
            - '*'
    -edit- ok now I changed it, but still isn't working

    there I just used your edited version, works like a charm. Still trying to figure out what I did wrong though, a little frustrating

    So How would i set permissions so that when i have whitelist off, players who join automatically become Default Class?

    it was the extra brackets [] you had in there after permissions:

    permissions: []               #[] is seen as null
        - 'permission.node'       #doesn't get seen, since permissions are flagged as null

    @ACStache one more question, is it possible to wild card citizens.use so it would be 'citizens.use.*' ?
  27. Offline


    @Godleydemon if there are more nodes afterwards, sure. so if there's 'citizens.use.X' and 'citizens.use.Y' you can consolidate both (or however many there are) into the 'citizens.use.*' as the * means all of this level. for example: giving someone 'citizens.*' would give them full access of that plugin.

    @ACStache thats what I was thinking, thankyou very much for your help, I think I can handle the rest of the setup myself but I'll probably come crying back on my knees smothered in peanut butter and cranberry juice because my server decided it was lunch time on mars.
