Operator Levels

Level 3 OPs can use the /op command, if they use this command then they will be able to give anyone access to OP level 4 as this is what Minecraft defaults to.

Operator levels allow the server administrator to control the level of access each operator has.

By default, if you use the /op command or another method listed in our adding operators guide it will use level 4 which grants full access the server commands list.

There are 4 levels that can be assigned to an operator, each grants access to different sets of commands. Each level will also inherit access to the commands from the level below.
