What is the Permissions Plugin?​

The Permissions Plugin is an essential tool designed by server admins for Ark Survival Ascended. It enables admins to set up and manage permission groups and ranks, link specific permissions to those ranks, and manage player access in-game.

This plugin is crucial for maintaining order and fairness within the game. It allows server admins to control who can do what, preventing misuse of certain powers and ensuring a balanced gaming environment.

Step-by-Step Guide on Setting Up and Managing Permission Groups and Ranks​

  1. Access the Admin Console: Start by accessing the admin console. This is usually accessed by pressing '`' on your keyboard while in-game.
  2. Create a New Group: Use the command Permissions.AddGroup <Group> to create a new group. Replace '<group name>' with the name you want for your group.
  3. Add a Player to the Group: To add a player to your group, use the command Permissions.Add <ID> <Group>. Replace '<id>' with the name of the player you want to add and '<group>' with your group's name.
  4. Assign Permissions to the Group: Use the command Permissions.Grant <Group> <Permission> to assign specific permissions to your group. Replace '<group>' with your group's name and '<permission>' with the desired permission.
