First introduced

Java Edition 1.8 (14w06a)

Modifies a scoreboard objective with a "trigger" criterion. Allows non-operator players to modify their own scoreboard objectives under tightly controlled conditions. Often used to let players activate systems made by operators or mapmakers.

Syntax[edit]

trigger <objective> [add|set] <value>

Arguments[edit]

<objective>

An enabled scoreboard objective with the "trigger" criterion.

add|set

  • add – Adds <value> to the current value of <objective>.
  • set – Sets the value of <objective> to <value>.
If neither of them argument is used, the effect is the same as if add 1 had been entered.

Result[edit]

Fails if the arguments are not specified correctly, if <objective> does not have the "trigger" criteria, or if <objective> has not been enabled for the player who executed the command.

On success, the value of <objective> is changed and <objective> is un-enabled for the player that executed the command.
