    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
