I've created a loot table[1] and I'm having issues using it with the loot command:

loot insert ~ ~ ~ loot minecraft:op

Executing the command above drops zero items. The JSON for the loot table is:

{
    "pools": [
        {
            "rolls": {
                "min": 1,

            },
            "bonus_rolls": {
                "min": 0,
                "max": 2.5
            },
            "entries": [
                {

                        }

                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}

Why is my loot table not showing up for the loot command?

Your loot table contains an error on line 10 and on line 15.

...
8.            "bonus_rolls": {
9.                "min": 0,
10.               "max": 2.5
11.           },
12.           "entries": [
13.               {
14.                   "type": "item",
15.                   "name": "minecraft:",
16.                   "weight": 1,
17.                   "functions": [
18.                       {
19.                           "function": "set_count",
20.                           "count": {
21.                               "min": 1,
22.                               "max": 2
...

On line 10, you have set the max bonus_rolls to 2.5; this is not a valid number, since the rolls must be integers (i.e. whole numbers). Use 2 or 3 instead.

On line 15, you left it as "name": "minecraft:" and did not specify what item is to be given.


I also recommend to place your loot table into your namespace instead of minecraft's namespace. Your folder structure would then look like this:

datapackName > data > your_namespace > loot_tables > op.json

...and you would use /loot insert ~ ~ ~ loot your_namespace:op

Additionally, make sure that the targeted location is a container to insert the loot into or the command will fail with the error, "The target block is not a container"

If you are trying to give the loot to a player directly, you should use /loot give @p loot your_namespace:op
