How do I change the OP power level?

What Is OP Power Level?

OP power level will determine different abilities that your operators can use. The levels are measured one through four. One being the lowest and four being the highest. As seen below, you will see the different powers.

Ops can bypass spawn protection.
Ops can use /clear, /difficulty, /effect, /gamemode, /gamerule, /give, /summon, /setblock and /tp, and can edit command blocks.
Ops can use /ban, /deop, /whitelist, /kick, and /op.
Ops can use /stop.

Please note that these permissions are based off of Vanilla usage. So, if you want to allow your operators to use all the commands with a server that has plugins installed. Then you would want to give the level four.

How Do I Set The Power Level?

Setting the power level is quite simple.

Firstly, you will want to click on the files drop down tab. Then click into the config files option.
On the config files page, you should see Server Settings at the top. Go ahead and click into it.

You will want to scroll down to where you see op-permission-level. By default, it is set to 4. Though to change it, you will want to replace the 4 with another level provided above.

After you set it, you will want to scroll to the bottom and click the big blue save button. Then go back and restart your server.
