    Vault is a Permissions, Chat, & Economy API to give plugins easy hooks into these systems without needing to hook or depend on each individual plugin themselves. It was born out of a distaste for how both Register and the current Permissions API are run, and their lack of features or over-complicated implementations. Vault attempts to solve these issues by being intuitive and providing plugins with support for any system that they may use.

    • update-check
      • turns the update checker on/off
    • vault.admin
      • allows access to vault info and conversion commands
      • defaults to OP
    • vault.update
      • Anyone with this permission will be notified when Vault is out-dated
      • defaults to OP
      • setting to false in permissions.yml will disable version check messages for console
    Vault currently Supports:

    This plugin utilizes bstats plugin metrics system. the following information is collected and sent to unless opted out:
    • A unique identifier
    • The server's version of Java
    • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
    • Plugin's version
    • Server's version
    • OS version/name and architecture
    • core count for the CPU
    • number of players online
    • Metrics version
    • Which Chat, Economy, and Permission hook is in use.
    Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/bstats/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

    Linking Vault
    There's a slightly longer/more detailed example on the Vault github page on how you might link to vault in a plugin. See:

    The following 3 methods can be used along with the 3 variables to load both the permission, economy, and chat systems from Vault. Make sure to add depend: [Vault] to your plugin.yml - You don't need to use all 3 if you don't want to in your plugin! If you only want one or two of the three APIs only use those ones you need!

    NOTICE: Vault automatically logs what Plugins it found and hooks to, there is no need to display this information in your plugin.

    NOTICE: Don't Forget To add softdepend: [Vault] or depend: [Vault] to your plugin.yml

    The best plugin for coding plugins. You can use economy with it and don't have any bug.

    Works fine as far as I can see. To those saying "please update" They update when it needs an update. It doesn't need an update right now because it works fine, hell same goes for something like Plugman... that stuff worked fine on 1.13.2 and hadn't been updated since 1.10, because it still worked.

    Seems to do okay on 1.14. Haven't had an error yet, am using luckperms and essentials. I've never seen vault before I opened my second server a month ago, previously back in 2016. Don't know much about it but my plugins that "need it" work. Haven't tested without vault but would appreciate an update even quarterly or bi annually. Thanks for your groundwork, would like to follow this for my server.

    Excellent Plugin, version v1.7.2-b107 works well with 1.14. Huzzah! I love how this makes it so much easier to get different plugins to work together. It's like a universal plug, love it!

    good plugin, but pls add 1.14.x update, many, including me, would greatly appreciate that

    Great plugin! This plugin is a must if you have economy and permission plugins.

    Vault works perfectly on a 1.13.2 server!
    Keep in mind, as of now, 1.14.4 doesn't work correctly!

    Maybe so many people doesn't understand what this plugin working for. but It's another essentials, and I'm using this one too.

    Version: 1.7.2
    Functionally fantastic.
    Note for the developer, please add in Prefix support for the plugin "UltraPermissions" by TechsCode. This is just a suggestion, my server needs this feature for the plugin to be able to function properly, but in all other areas, the plugin works excellently. Would recommend.
