3. Major Enhancements

    • New Module: Windows Server 2016 support added in VPS module.
    • Ability to impersonate as reseller using provider API settings added. This will allow provider to run different API calls on behalf of reseller without configuring API for resellers.

      a.    For this a new field is added in MPAuthenticationHeader “ImpersonateAsResellerId”. By-default it should be 0 to run API calls using API credentials of Provider.

      b.    If you want to execute an operation like Subscribe a service for a Customer of Reseller using API and provider credentials, set ImpersonateAsResellerId to CustomerId of Reseller as shown in Reseller listing interface.

      c.    All existing clients using WHMCS need to modify MachPanelClientHandler.php file (File location: WHMCS Installation Folder/Modules/Servers/MachPanel), add a line as shown below:

            $authParams = array();
            $authParams['UserName'] = $this->user;
            $authParams['UserPassword'] = $this->pwd;
            $authParams['AuthenticationToken'] = '';
            $authParams['CompanyId'] = '0';
            $authParams['EmployeeId'] = '0';
            $authParams['ImpersonateAsResellerId'] = '0';

    Note: All client using API or WHMCS need to set their API calls as mentioned above.
