    Version: 1.19.5


    PermissionsEx (PEX) is a new permissions plugin, based on Permissions ideas and supports all of its features. But PEX is more! It offers different backends, powerful ingame management, fine grained restrictions for world modification.


    Current features
    1. Bukkit Permissions (SuperPerms) compatible.
    2. Several backend support. Currently bundled backends is File (YAML) and SQL (MySQL, SQLite). Also it's possible to add your own.
    3. YAML backend, with new, fully rethinked, config schema. Now all user, groups and their permissions are stored in one file - permission.yml. BTW file name is adjustable too.
    4. SQL backend, most delicious. Currently MySQL and SQLite supported, but other DB (like Postgre) are possible too. PEX deploys the DB scheme (tables and initial data) automatically. This means, that you only need to provide data on how to connect to the db, everything else PEX will handle by itself.
    5. Flexible architecture and API - you can change a lot programmatically.
    6. Compatibility layer with TheYeti's Permissions (2.7.4) (as a separate part of the plugin). In most cases plugins, which use Permissions, will alsowork with PEX also.
    7. Rich chat/console command interface. You can do almost everything ingame. Command list below.
    8. Modifyworld - Embedded restrictions mechanism (we call it "modifyworld"), which provides the possibility to control players abilities, such as destroying/placing blocks, riding carts/boats or even getting spotted by mobs and much more. Disabled by default.
    9. Multigroup inheritance. User, as well as Group, can be member of several groups. And inherit their permissions, options and prefix/suffix.
    10. Permissions based upon Regular Expressions. This mean you can use regular expressions. Example: modifyworld.blocks.(destroy|place).(3|12) - this permission allow place or destroy only sand (12) or dirt (3) blocks. There is still limitation on dot usage in your regexps - dots are escaped by default.
    11. Multiworld permissions. Just don't specify world and permission would work in any world.
    12. Multiworld inheritance. You can inherit different groups in different worlds.
    13. Easy migration from Permissions 2.x. Converter for both YAML and SQL are embedded into PermissionsCompat. Just use simple instruction.
    14. Perfomance friendly. Low-level caching helps alot when you have 100+ online users :)
    15. Promotional/Demotional system. You can assign ranks to groups and promote/demote users to higher/lower ranked group.
    16. World-inheritance - permissions/option of one world can be inherited by another world.
    17. Timed Permissions - you can give user permission only for some amount of time.
    18. Chat Manager - small chat plugin, bundled with PEX. With prefixes/suffiex and colors. Check wiki for more details.

    Thank you very much for the reply, it's much appreciated. I had a feeling that I was using the incorrect command, and I did have a look at the pex commands list but must have skipped over it in my sleepy state. As for the ladder system, it's really interesting and cool. I shall have a look into it. Again, thank you. //TL

    Wow, I wish that someone were to take the project over, as this is such a great plugin. :)
  5. Offline


    Is the project really inactive!? I was going to move from group manager to this on all servers. Any who are timed permissions stackable?

    Is there a way I can change someone's rank per world?
    Like they can be member in the survival world, and creative rank in a creative world?

    I need help with PEX, I have quite a lot of plugins with different permission nodes. I'm starting with Essentials. It runs fine but I need to be Op to run any commands. I try to put in the node for, say, the balance command (I have Vault too), but putting - essentials.balance below, say VIP (I'm using the Basic Setup Script) causes the server to crash, not loading Essentials at all.

    default: true
    rank: '1000'
    - -modifyworld.mobtarget.*
    - modifyworld.*
    - permissions.*
    rank: '1'
    prefix: '&4(&cAdmins&4)&f '
    rank: '900'
    prefix: '&0(&8M&7ember&0)&7 '
    - modifyworld.*
    rank: '800'
    prefix: '&0(&eVIP&0)&7 '
    - modifyworld.*

    rank: '100'
    prefix: '&0(&1Moderator&0)&7 '
    - -modifyworld.mobtarget.*
    - modifyworld.*
    - Admins
    - Admins
    - VIP

    There's a lot of weird spacing but I assure you that's correct. When launching the server, PEX shows no errors as long as no nodes from other mods are in. Putting any Essentials stuff stops it 100%.

    How exactly do you take over the development of a plugin? I was thinking about taking over PermissionsEx if no one else wants to.
  11. Offline


    You need permission from the owner xD
  12. Offline


    Well yes, I realize that. :p I meant do I have to fill out anything or anything of that nature?
  13. Offline


    Nah, just send out a message to the pex devs :p
  14. Offline


    Oh alright lol, thanks. :)
  15. Is there a posibility to be in multiple groups @ once? that you can make it like :
    <rankname> username <donatorrankname>

    the rank and donatorranks have both apart right to commands / regions, so a prefix or suffix isnt enough.

    Something is definitely wrong with the newest PEX people are complaining about losing their permission from time to time when other people in the exact same group have the permissions. Whats the meaning of this?
    I am using a single backend file for 9 different servers fyi

    The last two builds have been borked. When I join my server, I always join invisible. With the last two builds, I'm visible when I join. I rolled back to 1.19.6 and I'm invisible again. Maybe others had problems with 1.19.6 but it's worked perfectly for me forever.

    Does it happen when you also OP someone and then DeOP them? Having the same problem.

    I'm fairly certain it depends what ranking system you use (whether it is ladders or linear ranks, I forget).

    But this is the workaround that I usually use:

    Simply give the permissions to the player, and set their suffix, Buycraft will do it automatically for you if you get it.

    EDIT: Sorry for the double post, forgot that I had clicked enter already on the last one.

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    Everything works fine when OPed but the problem is that the permissions dont seem to apply on the people all the time.. sometimes they have the permissions and somtimes they don't ,seems to be random

    It's buggy with 1.7.2, testing it on a server with 38 players. Hope they gonna fix it!

    How come on the latest version a lot of times i have to your /pex reload otherwise no permissions are working . But as soon as i do /pex reload they all work this is getting to be annoying and the plugin is becoming unreliable because on the default group i have it to where no on can build or do anything until i approve them and move them to another rank but now as soon as they join even though they have the permission to block them from building they are still able to .

    Seeing as ChatManager is no longer supported, how would I make a player talking look like this:
    Default Rank:
    &7Notch&f:&8Message Goes Here
    Admin Rank:
    &f[&cOP&f] &6Notch&f: &cMessage Goes Here

    Can u create a command for timed group...

    Hey, so I downloaded modifyworld and I want to give my default group permission to interact with wall signs. How do I do this?
  31. Offline


    Just wondering if it would be possible to separate the users from the groups? Occasionally I have an issue with permissions.yml not loading and after some time and troubleshooting, I find that there is a user with some random wackyness in their permissions or options chain. After removing said wackyness, the permissions file runs fine.. I've been using your plugin for a long time and will continue to use it and recommend it. I currently run 8 servers and needed a permissions plugin that was easy to use, not only for me on the back end, but for my owners/admins on the front end.. I look forward to the future of this plugin!!
