    Plugin Authors: How to hook into Permissions

    Permissions 2.x is being discontinued! 3.0 can be found HERE!!!

    I am discontinuing Permissions 2.x and leaving the project. Permissions is not going away though! Since 2.6 I have been working closely with another developer and added them to the team. For the past several version they have not only been assisting with 2.x but also doing a lot of the development of much anticipated 3.x. rcjrrjcr will be taking over as lead developer of Permissions from 3.x forward. I have full faith in them and after working closely with them on the development on the last few version and the next major version I feel that I am leaving this project in more than capable hands. I put way to much work into this project to just leave it with anyone, and this is one of the few programs that I am incredibly proud of.

    Many people will probably wonder why I am leaving again after taking over the project just a few months ago. I could quote drama and headaches, of which there were quite a few with this project. Unfortunately real life happens. Many people already know that I have been having medical issues here lately. Unfortunately while they have gotten better, they have not gone away. This coupled with other real life commitments, going to school full time, and starting up my own company, I am currently in the process of being laid off from work. At this point I have so much stuff going on in my life and am being pulled in so many directions that I am not able to get any work done on anything. This has lead to me missing commitments and letting people down on multiple things.

    Permissions is also a very high maintenance plugin that requires a lot of attention and time. Right now I am not able to devote that time and do not feel it is fair for me to try to continue to be the lead developer on it. I had originally thought that adding other members to the team would be helpful, but unfortunately this just lead to frustration for them and myself as I just was not able to commit to the project enough. Hence, 3.0 has been rewritten almost exclusively by rcjrrjcr with minimal contributions by myself.

    At this point I will be stepping away from the project to focus more on real life and to try to free up some time for other projects and to work with more individual like the wonderful HeroCraft Coding team to fulfill some commitments that I made to them a long time ago and sadly did not come through on. I feel that this is the best for all involved, both myself and the other Permissions developers, as well as the community who deserve someone who can contribute more time and attention to them and supporting them. I do not want to see Permissions end up like many other plugins with an absentee programmer and just slowly wasting away from a great plugin with a lot of potential to a headache with no support.

    I will still be active in the community, just not as much as not in the same way. I'm sure my server will be more than happy to have their head admin back and active again as well.

    Thank you and happy gaming.

    API questions...

    The source code on GitHub doesn't seem to reflect the jar files being distributed (or maybe I'm whacked), and the API docs are functionally non-existent, so I've come here to ask questions...

    I'm developing a plugin and I wish to integrate Permissions support (because everyone else does too). Is there a way to check to see if a player has a particular permission based on the player's name and not a Player object? Some like:

    PermissionsHandler ph;
    ph.has(playerName, perm);
    and NOT:

    Player player;
    ph.has(player, perm);
    In my case I need this functionality because the player in question hasn't necessarily connected to the server yet, so no Player object. I won't get into the reasons for this (unless you'd really like to know), but suffice it to say it's an absolute requirement of my plugin to be able to do this.

    And another API question...

    How do you use world based permission checking?

    If I have a player's name (not a Player object), what method(s) can I use to see if they have permissions in a specific world?

    I'm pretty sure the Git is up to date with the released versions so I'm not sure what you saw that didn't reflect the current releases.

    As for your question, .has actually takes the Player object and sends playerName on to the permission() function. You can use that call for what you want. And it also has your world.
        public boolean permission(String world, String playerName, String permission) {

    I have filled in all the usernames and there are just one username that dosen't work. I put it in online yaml praser and got an error on one off the user and when I removed it I didn't got an error. Someone knows what to do?

    That would depend on what the error is. Trying to guess it from no information is going to be hard.

    You have a problem in your permissions.yml file at or around line 82. Without the actual file, it will be hard to know what it actually is.

    I'll need the file again but it looks like you added something and perhaps missed another closing ' or something else.

    Post your permissions file so we can bust all these errors instead of 1 by 1 by 1 by 1 etc

                build: true
                - '*'
                - 'allow-admin-bypass
                - 'allow-admin-snoop'
    First off, you missed a ' at the end of bypass. Also, the format looks wrong. Are you sure that you didn't mean to do "allow.admin.bypass" and "allow.admin.snoop"?

    Trick question; it doesn't matter. When you give someone the '*' node, it gives them EVERY NODE. So when you give them '*' then add more nodes after that, you're duplicating all of those nodes. Either only give them '*' and nothing else; or remove the '*', set them to inherit the proper group, and add the nodes you want. This also applies to the CoOwner group. Note that you can give them '*', and then SUBTRACT nodes, if you want them to have almost, but not quite all, of the nodes. You can do that with this format:

            default: false
                prefix: ''
                suffix: ''
                build: true
                - '*'
                - '-redacted.node'
                - '-redacted.node'

    Can anyone answer why it says I do not have the necessary permissions to use /pr -reload all? I am an op and an admin in permissions. I really need this for my server.
  16. Offline


    do this from the console, as it may not know you are an admin until you reload them. otherwise, make sure you have all the proper branches set (permissions.reload.* i think) and there aren't any syntax errors so you can be sure you really are an admin to permissions.

    You don't have a : after semipro's name. You don't have a : after Builder

    Could I possibly bug one of you guys for some help, I can't seem to get any permissions set up for default users at all, going through an online parser returns no errors, have I done something wrong?
    default: true
    prefix: ''
    suffix: ''
    build: true
    - 'citizens.basic.*'
    - 'citizens.general*'
    - 'citizens.trader.*'
    - 'citizens.trader.stock'
    - 'citizens.blacksmith.*'
    - 'citizens.healer.*'
    - 'citizens.wizard.*'
    - 'iConomy.access'
    - '*'
    - 'getid.*'

    That should give default users access to all those commands right? Or am I missing something stupid the parser doesn't pick up on? : /

    Thank you!!!!

    The only mistake I can see without having the actual spacing correct is that your citizens.general* should actually be citizens.general.*. You are missing a . before the *. To correct the spacing if you need to post again, put the yml in code blocks. There is a button on the toolbar to do this or type [ code ]/[ /code ] (remove the spaces) and paste the yml between.

    in addition to what the guy above said, you have citizens.trader.stock assigned twice. Once by assigning citizens.trader.*, which includes trader.stock, and again when you assign citizens.trader.stock itself. Assigning nodes twice can cause issues, so you should remove the .stock node.

    I fixed that mistake but my default users still have no access to any of the commands they should, I still assume I'm just missing something really basic here.
    Here's my entire config file if anyone wouldn't mind cruising through it and pointing out my obvious mistake? :)
    Edit: Thanks for the help so far!

    I just finished trying it, no dice still. : /
    When I'm on my admin I can do everything, so something in there must be working, right?

    Have you reloaded the server, or reloaded permissions since you made the changes?
  28. Offline


    Yeah, I restart the server each time, it's quicker than exiting and starting up on my admin account.
    Restarting the server would reload permissions right? That's the same thing as reloading a server? Or have we just figured out what I'm doing wrong? : /

    Okay, I've definitely done something royally wrong here because now as admin I can't do anything either...
  29. Offline

    Psycho Robot

    No, restarting the server will reload permissions, so there's still something yet to be discovered. Have you been trying a variety of commands? If you're only trying Citzens commands, Citizens may be broken and it may not work through no fault of permissions, or yours. Also, what bukkit build are you on? There could be incompatibility issues.
  30. Offline


    I have the server on 803, is there a better build for this stuff?
    My admin account could use all the commands flawlessly previously, for all plugins, now it can't...for some reason.
    I've been trying commands from all my plugins just to be sure, I've never managed to give default users permission to do anything.
    I'm so confused. :(
    EDIT: I have absolutely no idea what I did to my configuration file, but I pooched the whole thing somehow, starting with a fresh one over fixed everything, all is well now, glad I don't have many commands to set up! :) Thanks for all the help guys.
