.modify is a chat command that allows the user to modify the NBT data of items.

Using .modify requires creative mode, but doesn't require OP.

NBT data is a complex topic that goes far beyond the scope of this page. See the NBT format page in the official Minecraft Wiki to learn more about how NBT works.
