Request Packet Structure

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

<packet>
<customer>
   <convert-to-reseller>
   ...
   </convert-to-reseller>
</customer>
</packet>

 

The convert-to-reseller 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 reseller-plan-name node is optional. If it is not specified, then the user is converted, but is not subscribed to a reseller plan. Instead, it is allocated the sum of resources and permissions that were available to the customer.
 

Response Packet Structure

The convert-to-reseller 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.
