PermissionsEx is supported on Paper, Spigot, and Bukkit, at versions 1.8.8, 1.12.2, and latest. While other versions may work, we don't actively test on those versions and issues will not be prioritized.
- We override the Superperms system to follow our own matching rules. Apart from specific changes to match in a more pex-friendly way, we attempt to match standard Bukkit permission resolution as closely as possible (in terms of following permission parents, op/not op defaults, etc).
- To expose PEX information to plugins that only use superperms, several metapermissions are provided. These are:Note: these permissions are not visible through Vault or PEX's API -- both provide better ways to access the same data.
PermissionsEx integrates with some plugins to provide additional permissions features. While the goal is for each of these plugins to bundle their own integrations, during PEX development many of these are included in PEX itself.
Vault is the standard permissions API to allow more extensive permissions operations on Bukkit. While Vault provides more functionality than the standard Superperms API, its model of permissions does not match PermissionsEx's entirely.
- Vault permission queries in a world that is not the player's active world do not provide accurate contexts. Because Vault only provides a world field, we only replace the
worldcontext in the player's active contexts. Any other location-based contexts, such as those for the current dimension or for any active regions, are not updated.
- Permissions and options can only be set in the global context or the context for just one world. Setting data does not use active contexts.
