Permissions and Roles in the Pterodactyl Panel

Permissions and roles are integral components of the Pterodactyl Panel, allowing for fine-grained control over user access and actions within the panel. This documentation provides a comprehensive guide on understanding the role-based permission system in the Pterodactyl Panel and managing permissions and roles effectively.

Understanding Permissions #

Permissions in the Pterodactyl Panel define what actions a user can perform. Each action or functionality within the panel is associated with a specific permission. Some common permissions include:

  • Creating and managing servers
  • Accessing server console
  • Managing files and folders
  • Managing users and permissions
  • Configuring server settings
  • Managing server databases

Each permission can be either enabled or disabled for a user, granting or restricting their access to specific features.

Role-Based Permission System #

The Pterodactyl Panel utilizes a role-based permission system, where permissions are grouped into roles. Roles allow for easy management of permissions by assigning a set of permissions to a role and then assigning that role to users. This system simplifies permission management, especially when dealing with a large number of users.

Roles can be customized to match the specific requirements of your server management team. You can create custom roles, modify existing roles, or use the default roles provided by the panel.
