To check if a user has permission to execute a command, you can create a permission hierarchy with an enum. Your highest permission level should be at the top, and the lowest at the bottom. This enum must implement PermissionSet.

enum class Permissions : PermissionSet {
        override suspend fun hasPermission(context: PermissionContext) = == 298168112824582154
        override suspend fun hasPermission(context: PermissionContext) = context.getMember()?.isOwner() ?: false
        override suspend fun hasPermission(context: PermissionContext) = true

Once created, we must integrate it. Firstly, it must be registered in the main bot function via the configure block.

configure {
    permissions(commandDefault = Permissions.EVERYONE)

This registers the permission enum we created and sets the permission level of every command to EVERYONE. To override this value, simply specify it in the target command.

command("BotOwner") {
    description = "Command requiring BOT_OWNER permissions"
    requiredPermission = Permissions.BOT_OWNER
    execute {
        respond("Hello bot owner!")

To set the required permission by category, pass the desired permission level into the commands builder.

fun botOwnerCommands() = commands("BotOwner", Permissions.BOT_OWNER) { ... }

This sets each command in this category to BOT_OWNER, which can then be overridden on a per-command basis as shown above.
