The permission system in Oxide handles controlling who can use specific commands and features which most plugins offer. You can input any of these commands within your console if you are logged in on an admin account. If you want to know how to set up an admin account, you should read our Knowledge Base article on how to set up an admin account in rust - https://pingperfect.com/index.php/knowledgebase/239/Rust--How-to-Add-yourself-as-an-Admin-or-Adding-Others-as-Moderators.html
Basic Explanation of UMod Permission System
You can think of UMod Oxide as a safe which holds your plugins. Within the safe, just like a real safe, you'll want a key or a code. This way you can make sure that only the people you want to have access to your safe have access to the contents of your safe. Plugin permissions are essentially the same thing.
A permission is a value which you can apply to a user group or an individual player allowing them access to a specific command within the plugin. A user group, simply, is a group for users. By default, UMod Oxide gives you an admin group and a default group. As it sounds, admins go in the admin group, everyone else is in default.
To find out if your mod requires you to pass out permissions to operate, you can tell because it will say so within the plugin overview at UMod.org.
As a hypothetical example, we'll use the permission from the made-up plugin SuperGather. Super Gather requires you to add the permission supergather.pickup in order to pick up super gather resources. It also grants users the /pickup command. If you want admins to have access to the /pickup command, and only admins, give the admin group access to this permission like so:
Press F1 to enter your console, and enter the following text:
oxide.grant group admin supergather.pickup
Then press Enter.
The admins will now have access to this command.
On a side note, the admin group is a subgroup of default, which means if you give the default group access to supergather.pickup, admins will have it as well. You can do this by entering the following text into the console:
oxide.grant group default supergather.pickup
UMod Oxide Permission Commands
Below, you will see a list of commands which can be entered into the console in the above format.
oxide.grant user <name><permission> Grants a user a permission
oxide.revoke user <name><permission> Revokes a users permission
oxide.grant group <group><permission> Grants a group a permission
oxide.revoke group <group><permission> Revokes a groups permission
oxide.usergroup add <name><group> Adds a user to a group
oxide.usergroup remove <name><group> Removes a user from a group
oxide.group add <group> <"[Title]"><rank> Creates a new group Title and rank are optional depending on the circumstance.
oxide.group remove <group> Removes a group
oxide.group set <group><"[Title]"><rank> Sets the title or rank of a group.
oxide.group parent <parentgroup><childgroup> Setting the parent group of another group
oxide.show user <name> Shows a user's permissions
oxide.show group <group> Shows a group's members and permissions
oxide.show perm <permission> Shows which user or group has a permission
oxide.show groups/perms Shows all groups or permissions
oxide.grant group <group> * Grants a group a wildcard. Wildcard simply means all. So this would grant the right to all permissions
oxide.grant user oxide.* Grants a user all permissions without adding them to the admin group.
