Multiple cPanel Logins (cPanel Subusers)
This is the 3rd iteration of this request. The last one https://features.cpanel.net/topic/multiple-cpanel-logins-cpanel-subusers, despite being "open for discussion", has had comments locked.
As someone pointed out, this request is over 10 years old. It has 638 votes and is #2 requested item. If that isn't enough to get some action, then can someone from cpanel explain the purpose of this forum? Because popularity doesn't seem to have anything to do with it.
Support For cPanel Subusers
Small cPanel account owners may want to delegate specific tasks to be performed by somewhat trusted individuals but without full access to the cPanel interface. Reasons for this can include the following hypothetical situations:
- Small Businesses having a secretary, giving the secretary access to just creating and removing email accounts but not to editing the company's website.
- Web Designers that guarantee their work not wanting their hosting customers to re-code their website themselves then accuse the Web Designer of poor coding.
- A Small Business Owner that wants to delegate full access to the cPanel interface to a contractor, but be reliably able to revoke that access in the event that contract is terminated.
The features available to these subusers should be filtered using a utility identical to or very similar to Feature Manager and Feature Lists.
Subusers (which would very likely be virtual users) would have a login of username@domain similar to FTP virtual users and Email virtual users. The ability for matching user capabilities such as SFTP access could eventually be accommodated by features already being worked on like version 11.34's Pluggable Authentication.
