Command

/permissions-wizard

tl;dr

Temporarily grant yourself elevated permissions and view the permissions and commands you have access to

Description

The Permissions Wizard is a key Good Knight feature that allows security along with flexibility. As a moderator, it gives you password protected access to use dangerous discord permissions while minimizing the risk.
To start, execute /permissions-wizard and enter your Good Knight password. You will be able to view the permissions and commands that you are able to use in a quick summary. To have these permissions toggled on or off, the server owner or Good Knight admins can use the /manage-mods command.
For any permissions that has been toggled on by your server owner or Good Knight admins, you have two possibilities:
  1. 1.
    If the Permissions Wizard is active, the mod will be able to temporarily access any of the permissions toggled on. This allows the mod the power to use Discord as it was meant to be, but with the safety of password protection!
  2. 2.
    Some specific commands require the mod to be assigned certain permissions, even if the Permissions Wizard is deactivated. These commands are marked with ⓟ
For example, a mod has the Create Announcement permission. They now have access to the /post command which can be used to have Good Knight send a secure message in any channel. Even channels that the user cannot send messages in (this is great for protecting announcement channels). In addition, if the Permissions Wizard is active they can select it from the drop-down menu to be temporarily given this permission. With the Create Announcement permission, they are now given the ability to send a message in any channel that they can view and mention users with @everyone, @here, or @<roles>. Once the temporary permission expires, their permissions return to normal.

⚠
Temporary permissions granted to a user give them the ability to use those permissions in any channel that they can view. The only exception is the Administrator permissions which will give the mod access to every channel. Temporary permissions can be revoked by any Good Knight admin or mod by clicking the Revoke Permissions button in the Good Knight logs channel.
