Limited accounts with perm ban permissions unable to save banList

Question

Hi, we have a couple of Procon Layers and have recently noticed a problem with the banlist resetting after server reboots. I found a couple of articles in the forums talking about this, but none of them seemed to address the specific issue I'm running into. This is for a BF3 server.

 

Essentially what is happening is that users who don't have the "Edit Ban List" permission on the layer don't have permissions to save the ban list. This seems pretty obvious (as in, if they can't edit the ban list then they shouldn't be able to save it), but in reality this means that their bans only ever get written to memory unless someone else saves the ban list before the next server reboot.

 

When they add the ban, it does attempt to send the banList.save command, but an "InsufficientPrivileges" error is returned. The ban is successfully added to the list in memory, and if the ban list is saved by someone else, it's written to the file.

 

I could give all users with permanent ban permissions the ability to edit the ban list, but I don't want them to be able to remove bans or clear the entire ban list. I only want them to be able to add bans.

 

Is there another way to do this? Ideally I would think giving people ban abilities would give them banList.save permissions automatically, or there could be another option for "Save Ban List" for more granular control. If there are any workarounds to this that don't involve giving everyone with perm ban the ability to unban people, I would love to hear them.

 

Thanks! Other than this issue, we've found ProCon Frostbite to be a very useful piece of software.

I've always found that sometimes its not reliable with saving and removing bans sometimes. If you want more control with your procon users I would recommend looking into the AdKats plugin*. It has way more options and permissions than what is possible with vanilla procon. You will need a MySQL database for it but lots of people here run that plugin. It's become one of the goto plugins to have with ProCon.

I'll look into the plugin, but I'd rather not do that unless it's absolutely necessary. I'm not looking for anything super granular, I just want users with perm ban to be able to save those bans, without being able to edit / wipe the ban list.

  • Our picks

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.



      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.


      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.


      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.




      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.


      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.


      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.


      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 


      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.


      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.




      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month


      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.





      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
