  1. add functionality for pre-install checker to check supported components and prohibit installation on case unsupported components are found

    It would be great to not have an ability to install Plesk on a system that is using a component (database server, e.x.) that is not supported by the Plesk version.
    Please consider implementing the functionality of the pre-install checking of unsupported components. It can prevent issues with Plesk on the servers with unsupported software.
    Such an idea has already been provided once, however, it was too specific (for database servers only): https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/20166910-prohibit-installation-on-unsupported-databases.

  2. Add a possibility to re-send Plesk notifications to customers

    At the current moment it is not possible to re-send Plesk notifications about creating domain\customer account because they are triggered by specific events.

    But there is a chance that this email could be deleted by user accidentally.

    Would be helpful to have a functionality to re-send email notifications in Plesk.

  3. Add an ability to encode parameters sent in custom button URL

    Currently, parameters passed to the custom button URL are put there in plain text (even FTP user password).
    As the custom button URL is using GET request, the parameters can be easily replaced by anyone which is not secure and doesn't allow using custom buttons for logging customers into a third-party service (e.g. billing).
    Please consider implementing an option to securely encode URL parameters so only the receiving side can decode them.

  5. Internal Service Plan Name

    I wanted to order by plans internal by their name which can be done.

    I have also been adding in add on's which all fall under the same list.

    What I'm suggesting is there could be an external name for the plan or add on which the customer sees and an internal name which I can then write prefixes onto for help with ordering.

    For example:

    101 - Mailbox Size Upgrades - 5gb
    102 - Mailbox Size Upgrades - 10gb

    201 - Additional Domain - 1

    etc...

    I think it just looks odd showing off the internal codes to the…

  6. Add ForeignKey Fields for Business Objects! Customernumber etc

    Please add Key fields to business objects in Plesk that Administrators and Resellers can edit. It's a must have feature to simple and safe find the correct objects!

    Resllers - Customer Number

  10. Allow filter subscriptions by expiration date in API.

    With current version, to get all subscriptions that will expire soon must request all subscriptions, include the limits dataset, and then perform a filter.
    Leaving the possibility to filter by expiration date will be a greate improvement.

  12. Remove subdomain keeping all files and directories

    I should be able to remove a subdomain, keeping all its files and folders. eg:

    • dev.mydomain.com Root directory: /mydomain.com
    • www.mydomain.com Root directory: /mydomain.com

    Currently if I remove the subdomain, I'm told that all its relevant files will be removed, BUT, it is in use by the main domain. I need the assurance, and a checkbox to KEEP the root directory and all associated files.

  14. Obsidian Scheduled Tasks update has less functionlity due to cron style Version 18.0.25 Update #2

    Version 18.0.25 Update #2 Windows

    New Cron style schedule tasks. This was such a poorly thought out feature to implement and as such a bad one.

    It's great that Plesk want's to standardise the control panel between platforms but now in the case of Windows servers the experience is worse than before. Previously there were checkboxes that you could tick, so if you wanted a task to execute every 5 minutes then you could just ticket the appropriate boxes.

    Now in attempt to bring cron style to Windows without the / character this has become really laborious having to enter…

  17. Migrate/move scheduled task with Plesk windows to a different subscription

  18. Stop sending the user back to the root path in file manager after clicking on refresh

    In the file manager, when I press the refresh button of my browser, plesk changes the path to the root path of domain rather than refreshing the actual folder path.

    For example:
    I have a domain called tomydna
    It is a wordpress installation
    So, sometimes, I want to go to wp-content/cache/ to see if cache files and folders are created. Sometimes, I must click on refresh button to see if the server just created new files or new folders.
    Unfortunately, when I press the refresh button of my browser there is an unexpected behavior, Plesk sends me back to the…
