💠 Creating and deleting a Group

To create a group with LuckPerms type: /lp creategroup <group>

To delete a group with LuckPerms type: /lp deletegroup <group>

To list all groups with LuckPerms type: /lp listgroups

💠 Setting permissions for Groups and Users


Add permissions to a group: /lp group <group> permission set <permission>

To remove permissions from a group: /lp group <group> permission unset <permission>

Please note that the <permissions> needs to be replaced with a permission node. If you do not know what a permission node is please read our guide explaining them here.


Add a permission to a user: /lp user <user> permission set <permission>

Remove a permission from a user: /lp user <user> permission unset <permission>

💠 Setting up Users

Set a user to a group: /lp user <user> parent set <group>

Remove a user from a group: /lp user <user> parent remove <group>

View a user's info: /lp user <user> info

💠 Setting up Groups

To set a subgroup to a group, use: /lp group <group> parent set <group>

Example: /lp group warrior parents set default (by doing this, the group "warrior" will have all the default group's permissions)

View a group's info: /lp group <group> info

Set a group's weight: /lp group <group> setweight <weight>

List all group permissions: /lp group <group> permission list (page)

View group members: /lp group <group> listmembers (page)

Set group prefix: /lp group <group> meta setprefix <prefix>

Example: /lp group warrior meta setprefix &a[Warrior]&f (by doing this, the group "warrior" will have [Warrior] as a prefix in chat.)

You must use a chat plugin such as EssentialsChat, ChatControl or UltimateChat 2 to show prefixes in chat.

🗺️ WebEditor - The Best Way to Edit Permissions 🗺️

The Web Editor is an online editor for your permissions. Using it you will not have to use commands anymore, but you will use its interface to configure the permissions. It is the best way to edit your LuckPerm's permissions.

To create an editor session for all groups and any online users, do the following:

Log in to your server.

Use the following command: /lp editor

[Old WebEditor]

Once you've finished making changes to the data, you need to save your changes on the server. Click on the Save button, or use the CTRL + S keyboard shortcut to save. The editor will generate a command which you need to run in-game or in the console for your changes to apply. Simply clicking on the command will copy it to your clipboard.

When you run the command, a summary of the changes will be shown.
