    GroupManager was one of the first permission plugins ever available for Bukkit. Although there are plugins such as LuckPerms with more functionality than GroupManager, and the official support and development of Essentials plugins has ended, GroupManager is still preferred over other plugins by lots of server administrators.

    (v0.3.1++ For 1.15)

    For 1.7.8 - 1.8.9 - The last version of the Original GroupManager:

    For 1.9.x, 1.10.x, 1.11.x - An updated fork by who knows who:

    For 1.12.x - 1.13.x - GroupManagerX:

    For 1.13.x - Updated by Xadzkon:

    For 1.14.x - Updated by Xadzkon:


    • Some plugins do not support GroupManager to a full extent. This doesn't mean that players will have infinite access to plugin's commands, but rather that the plugin simply won't hook into GroupManager (e.g. a chat plugin).
    • On some combinations of versions of Minecraft, Spigot, GroupManager and chat plugins prefixes and suffixes do not work. If you are using EssentialsXChat, please install Vault as well before using GroupManager. (If I remember correctly, in the second version, that is for 1.9 - 1.11, prefixes and suffixes do not work at all, but you shouldn't run those versions anyway now.)
    • '*' doesn't work on vanilla commands. A workaround is adding the permission 'minecraft.command.<command name>' to your user/group. (Replace <command name> with your command's name, e.g. 'summon').
    Support & Bug reports

    Unfortunately I don't have as much time lately as I used to, so I cannot do what I wanted, and add new features to GroupManager. I am compiling for every new major Minecraft version and sometimes fixing bugs or updating deprecated code, but don't expect too much support. Development is taking place on GitHub, so feel free to contribute to the code base yourself, if you find something very important. I am really sorry if I respond late to your bug reports or messages.



    • Update deprecated code
    • RegEx in permissions ??
    • Sync ranks across Bungee servers ??
    • Database support ??
    • Bungee permission handler ??
    Don't really expect the striked through features anywhere in the near future. See the red text above.
    (No promises / guarantees for updates.)

    Please leave a ✮✮✮✮✮ rating if you enjoy the plugin! If you have any issues, do not leave it in the ratings section, instead write to GitHub.
    Thank you.

    By far the best permissions plugin!
    Been using Group Manager since 2012 and have finally updated from a very old build, Everything works perfectly and the filesize is considerably smaller than it was with no loss of anything.
    Great Work, Defiantly Recommended!

    Good base permission Plugin for very small Servers due to the easy Setup...but the lack of certain features, the bugs and the fact that there is just no Support at all makes LuckPerms the way better choice...

    Please bring time setting feature for groups. And I try to install and use this plugin on my 1.15.2 server, but the commands are not complete even if the players have the authority. I am not experiencing this error in any other authority plugin.
