Command format[edit]

  • Syntax: /trigger <objective> <add:set> <value>.
  • Functions the same way as /scoreboard players set or /scoreboard players add, but can only modify objectives with the trigger criteria (referred to as "triggers") and can only modify the score of the player running the command.
  • Can be used by non-operator players.
  • For a player to run this command, the trigger must be enabled for that player.
    • /scoreboard players enable <player> <trigger> will enable the specified player to use the specified trigger objective.
    • Trigger availability is stored per player, per trigger.
      • One trigger may be disabled for a player, but that player can use a different trigger.
      • One player may be unable to use a trigger, but another player can use the same trigger.
    • Disabled after the trigger has been used (must be re-enabled to use the trigger again).
  • Mostly for use with /tellraw.
