Synapse has an own permission system which overrides the permission system used by SCP: Secret Laboratory which means you need to set up the permissions, in order to have access to the RemoteAdmin.


Everything will be defined in the permission.syml which will be created by Synapse on the first boot of the Server in ~/Synapse/configs/server-shared.
By default, the Server Section, an example Owner and User group will be generated.
# If Enabled the GlobalBanTeam gets their global Permissions
globalBanTeamAccess: true
# If Enabled the Manager gets their global Permissions
managerAccess: true
# If Enabled the Staff gets their global Permissions
staffAccess: true
# If Enabled this Group will be assigned to all players,which are in no other Group
default: false
# If Enabled this Group will be assigned to Northwood staff players,which are in no other Group
northwood: false
# If Enabled this Group has Acces to RemoteAdmin
remoteAdmin: true
# The Badge which will be displayed in game

# The Color which the Badge has in game

# If Enabled The Badge of this Group will be displayed instead of the global Badge

# The KickPower the group has

Permission Wildcard

You can give a group every permission by adding the Permission '*',.*.
If you want to add all Permissions for a specific plugin you can do this with pluginname.*.
- plugin.*
- synapse.command.*

Vanilla Permissions

Maybe you have noticed that you have no vanilla permissions (except you use the wildcard), which you can change by adding the permission vanilla.* for all vanilla permissions or vanilla.permissionname. (The nodes of the permissions can you find here)
- vanilla.FacilityManagement
- vanilla.PlayersManagement

Synapse Permissions

Password authentication

Synapse does not support password authentication and it is recommended to disable it on your Server in the SCP:SL Configs to prevent bugs that may occur
