Creating Secret Key
Use the create operation to create a secret key.
Note: To create a secret key, you should specify the IP address this secret key will be linked to. Packets sent with this key from different IP's will not be proceeded by Plesk API RPC service.
Request Packet Structure
A request XML packet creating a secret key includes the create operation node:
The create node has the following graphical representation:
- The ip_address node is optional. It specifies the IP address that will be linked to the key. Data type: ip_address (

- The login node is optional. It specifies the login name of an existing customer or a reseller that will have this secret key. The customer's or reseller's account should be active. Data type: string.
You can create multiple secret keys in a single packet. Add as many create operations as the number of keys to be created.
Important: When creating request packets, put nodes and elements in the order they follow in the packet structure.
