Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I think it's a bit annoying to open up config.yml for permissions every time I want to add someone to the server. As default, no one has permissions to do anything, they need to be in the user group. Is there a way to do this through the in game console?

You can use the following command to set a player's group with PermissionsBukkit:

/permissions player setgroup <player> <group>

So, this would set a player named Bob to the 'user' group:

/permissions player setgroup Bob user

Just make sure that you have the permissions.player.setgroup permission node set to true. You can also just use permissions.player.* or just permissions.* to get that permission as well.

Maybe merge the two answers to create a 2 way solution? –  Wijagels Oct 18 '12 at 1:45

I use a plugin called setrank to achieve this. There are two versions, one for PEX here http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/setrankpex/

and one for bukkitperms here http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/setrankpb/

(I think you want the second one)

It's quite easy to set up and use and if you want to let users buy ranks it can be configured (they use the /promo command)

I have tried to use /permissions player setgroup, but it didn't work on my server. I suggest using /promote <player> for smaller servers. I also had to remove my whitelist/blacklist to make this plugin work.
