How They Work

When you’re setting up a new server, a very important part of the process is managing permissions and configuring them as you go.

Permissions are little pieces of text that indicate an action. When you grant a certain group of players this permission, the plugin will know that they are allowed to perform this action. They are usually laid out like pluginname.permission.

An example is the essentials.afk permission. If you give this permission to a player, they will be able to perform the /afk command.

So how does one grant permissions to their players? For this exact purpose people have created permission plugins. They allow you to create groups, usually associated with the term Rank. You can then give certain permissions to these groups, and assign players to these groups.
