Assign account owner during account creation process

Feature Importer shared this idea 9 years ago
Open Discussion

As a Server Administrator, I want to be able to assign account owner during account creation process, so that I can create accounts for resellers to own.


It would be appreciated if during the account creation process the account owner could also be assigned. This isn't to make a user own their own account but to appropriately file this account into being owned by a particular reseller account.

Both the command line script (scripts/wwwacct) and the API allow you to specify the account owner. With the command line script, it's the 16th argument to wwwacct (yeah, sorry about that).


With the API it's the 'owner' parameter to the createacct function. Here is a simple example:


  1. /json-api/createacct?api.version=1&username=filly&domain=filly.test&password=temp123&owner=ab

It appears that parameter is not documented. We'll get that fixed.


Do either of these satisfy your needs?

I was thinking through the normal "Create a New Account" GUI would be nice, but since when I added my recent comment, I realized I could log in directly to an account from WHM by clicking the CP logo on the account list page, so I don't care about this as much anymore as I'm not using reseller functionality now as a result. The OP and others may still value it though.
