Request Packet Structure

A request XML packet upgrading customer accounts to reseller accounts includes the change-owner node:

<packet>
<customer>
   <change-owner>
   ...
   </change-owner>
</customer>
</packet>

 

The change-owner node does not have a separate type, it is nested within the ClientTypeRequest complex type (client_input.xsd). Its graphical representation is as follows:

  • The filter node is required. It specifies the filtering rule. Data type: clientSelectionFilterType. For more information on filters, refer to the Available Filters section.
  • The new-owner-login node is required. It specifies the new owner.
  • The ipV4-address and ipV6-address nodes specify which IP addresses should be assigned to the customer from the IP pool of the new owner. At least one IP address must be specified.
  • The plan-name node is optional. It specifies the web hosting plan belonging to the new owner that should be associated with transferred subscriptions.
 

Response Packet Structure

The change-owner node of the output XML packet is structured as follows:

  • The result node is required. It wraps the response retrieved from the server. Data type: ResultFilterType (plesk_common.xsd).
  • The status node is required. It specifies the execution status of the operation. Data type: string. Allowed values: ok | error.
  • The errcode node is optional. It is used to return the error code when the operation fails. Data type: unsignedInt.
  • The errtext node is optional. Can be used to return the error message if the operation fails. Data type: string.
  • The filter-id node is optional. Returns the filtering parameter. Data type: anySimple.
  • The id node is optional. It is required if the operation succeeds. Returns the unique identifier of the reseller account. Data type: integer.
 

Samples

The request packet transferring a customer account to another reseller account looks as follows:

<packet>
<customer>
   <change-owner>
      <filter>
        <login>customer1</login> 
      </filter>
      <new-owner-login>admin</new-owner-login>
      <ipV4-address>10.52.47.125</ipV4-address>
      <plan-name>Admin Simple</plan-name>
 </change-owner>
</customer>
</packet>

Response:

<packet version="1.6.7.0">
<customer>
   <change-owner>
       <result>
          <status>ok</status>
          <filter-id>customer1</filter-id>
          <id>5</id>
       </result>
   </change-owner>
</customer>
</packet>
