Reseller AutoSSL interface

As a webhosting provider or reseller I would like cPanel to add AutoSSL to non-root level reseller WHM permissions, so that I can manage AutoSSL for my accounts independently of root.

I resell Web Hosting and I must say that this feature is worth it. I'm annoyed that I can't change anything to do with AutoSSL without contacting my parent web hosting company. So yes, cPanel needs a interface within WHM for the reseller. This feature is well worth it and I have been frustrated how it doesn't already exist.

This might also be useful for resellers that do not wish to offer free SSL certificates by default. For example they might only want to enable it for certain packages, or disable it overall and sell SSL certificates instead.

Moreover, if I, as a reseller, want to check autossl for created user via API, I'm not able to do that. But I don't want to run any API scripts with the root privileges, as it's not really secure. So at least checking option should be available by API.

Currently, we are giving the AutoSSL when client a requesting the SSL, since activating the AutoSSL for all users caused SEO problems (ending with two version of the site being indexed).

We now have reseller that would like to manage who and when the give the SSL to their client so I think that this feature would be needed.

An option should be available in the reseller “EditReseller Nameservers and Privileges” menu to either allow or disallow the reseller to have the ability to managed AutoSSL for their user an plans.

Do we have any update on this feature ?

Adding the AutoSSL feature in the ACL priviledge menu could solve the issue.

There isn't an update at this time. If/when it gets added, we will likely see it added as a privilege to the Reseller Center.
