    Description

      Hi,

      upon experimenting with the server I found a mismatch between documentation and actual behaviour for the /permission command.

       

      Version: Bedrock dedicated server 1.14.60.5

       

      Documentation (HTML file that comes with the downloaded server) states, in chapter Permissions:

       

      If you change this file while the server is running, then run the command permissions reload to make sure that the server knows about your new change. You could also list the current permissions with permissions list.

       

      Also mentioned with this same syntax in the commands list.

      permissions <list | reload> list prints the current used operator list.
      reload makes the server reload the operator list from the ops file.
      See the Permissions section for more information.

       

      Actual behaviour when typing the commands into the server console:

       

      permissions list
      Unknown command: permissions. Please check that the command exists and that you have permission to use it.
      permissions reload
      Unknown command: permissions. Please check that the command exists and that you have permission to use it.

       

      Accepted syntax is permission without the s:

       

         permission list
         ###*

      {"command":"ops","result":["2535450022930213"]}

          *###
         ###* {"command":"permissions","result":[

      {"permission":"operator","xuid":"2535450022930213"}

      ]}
          *###

         permission reload
         Ops reloaded from file.
         Permissions reloaded from file.

       

       

      Suggested solution: Either adapt documentation, or change command syntax in server.

       

      Separate suggestion but maybe not worth a separately mentioned issue: Could mention the other working server commands with their correct syntax in the documentation, e.g. gamerule. Found out about this command by typing help. Works fine, just not mentioned in documentation file.

       

      Thanks!
