    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.

    Hey, I would like to know if it is possible to hide the permissions messages in console or if it is possible to add an option in the config.yml to hide them if possible, otherwise very good plugin that I use since over 3 years I highly recommend

    Plugin awasome. Latest version not.
    Latest version was made with Java version higher than Java 8, so servers with Java 8 won't be able to run this plugin. Could you maybe remake this plugin with java 8?

      Hi, try downloading it now (using the same link) as it should now be compatible with Java 8.

    Excellent plugin! but still not the plugin i was looking for... Happy to see you roadmap where you could sync ranks across bungee's. Do anyone know when this roadmap point will be done :)

      I am really sorry, unfortunately not anywhere soon. I don't have as much time as I used to so I can't go ahead and do what I planned, add new features. Even more so, to do that in an old, rusty code base, maybe it would take more time to get to know the code than to make a new plugin. :)

      This plugin exists mainly of legacy reasons, I update it to new Minecraft versions. If you want something powerful, I recommend you take a look at LuckPerms.

    I've always preferred GM over all others, but I have not been able to get prefixes to show, I've tried using older versions of vault and this plugin in a bunch of different combinations, and nothing works, please help
