Introduction to PermissionsEX

PermissionsEX is an easy to use permission plugin that allows you to give certain members and groups permissions to certain commands on your server. This tutorial requires you to be OP and have access to your server console, which can be found here.


Getting Started:

  • Type "/pex user <your name> add permissions.*", replacing <your name> with your in game name into the server command. The server command can be found in the settings section of the panel and can be found under the "Server Commands". This command will give you permission to do other PermissionsEX command in game instead of having to do them through the console.

How to create a rank:

  • Type /pex group <rank> create replacing <rank> with the name of the rank, for example, if we were making a Moderator group we'd type /pex group moderator create
  • To assign somebody to this group you have just created, type /pex user <username> group set <rank>.

How to create a prefix or suffix for a group:

  • Type /pex group <rank> prefix set "<prefix>" to create a prefix for a rank. A prefix is the text that comes before a player's name. 
  • Quotations are required in this step so that the plugin knows when the prefix ends and begins, you can also use colour codes in your prefix or suffix. For example, if we wanted the prefix to be shown as in first one in the image below, we would type "&c&lADMIN &c" in place of <prefix>. Without the quotations marks, it would appear as the second example



  • To add a suffix, type /pex group <rank> " <suffix>" to create a suffix for a specific group. A suffix is the text that comes after a player's username in chat. 

How to add permissions to a group:

  • To add a permission to a group, type /pex group <rank> add <permission node>.  Permission nodes are specific to each plugin and are what is used to give groups permission to commands, you can find any plugins permission nodes by searching "(plugin)'s permission nodes" on google.
  • To remove a permission from a group, type /pex group <rank> remove <permission node>
