Trusted Setup

This guide aims to help walk you through each step of Birthday Bot's trusted setup process as well as show the functionality of our interactive setup commands.

In this guide, we will be using Birthday Bot's interactive trusted setup command.

Start by using bday setup trusted.

The prompt will give you three options for the trusted role setting. The first will automatically create the trusted role for your server, the second will allow you to select one of your previously existing roles to be the trusted role, and the third will not assign a trusted role.

For this example, we will choose the second option and receive a prompt to enter a role name/mention.

Now we input the name of our desired role.

Once the trusted role has been set, the next prompt will ask about some trusted role options. The first prompt will ask about the prevent role setting for the trusted role.

This setting decides if the trusted role is needed for a user to get the birthday role on their birthday.

For this example we will set this option to false.

Now we will be prompted with the next setting. This prompt will ask about the prevent message setting for the trusted role.

This setting decides if the trusted role is needed for a user to get the birthday message on their birthday.

Learn more here.

For this example we will set this setting as true.

Finally, the bot will send a summary of the settings that have been selected in this setup.

The bot now knows (In this example) the trusted role is the staff role, and will continue to give everyone the birthday role on their birthday, but only give birthday messages to those with the staff role.

This completes the trusted setup process. For other server setting commands which are not in the setup interactive guide please visit here.
