How to set a player as OP (admin) Print

  • 1

Managing OP Players

You can assign OP players by either use of Console Commands, or even in-game commands (by other already op-ed players)

Assigning OP via Console or in-game commands

Using the command /op you can assign or remove ops.

/op <playername> - to add a player as OP status

/deop <playername> - to remove a player from OP status

When using the web-based console, be sure to drop the / from the start of the command

Permission Levels

Since the 1.7.10 snapshot release (13w19a), Operator Permission Levels were introduced into Minecraft, to give server administrators much more granular control over operator permissions. Each permission level is assigned various commands, and inherit all commands from the previous level. For example, a level 3 operator also has access to commands from both level 2, and level 1. The highest possible operator permission level, is 4.

Level Highest level of access
Level 1 Ops can bypass spawn protection. No commands are assigned to this level of operator.
Level 2 Ops can use /clear, /difficulty, /effect, /gamemode, /gamerule, /give, /summon, /setblock and /tp, and can edit command blocks.
Level 3 Ops can use /ban, /deop, /kick, and /op.
Level 4 Ops can use /stop.
