  2. Make firewall CLI more usable

    At the moment, it is mandatory to use a second ssh session to confirm the changes. Therefore, you cannot easily script things like setting up a firewall on a new Plesk server.
    Also, it's not possible to deactivate or modify the default rules like it's possible via GUI.

    • Implement a "--force" parameter to be able to setup the firewall via script
    • Make it possible to modify existing rules
    • Make it possible to deactivate rules

  3. mark ham email messages as spam serverwide on Plesk Email Security Pro

    Can not mark ham messages as spam serverwide on Plesk Email Security Pro. Many spam messages and senders look HAM but actually spam. This should be handled by server admin, not individual email clients.

  4. Implement the ability to remove the default certificate from newly created domains.

    When creating a default server certificate within "Tools & Settings > SSL/TLS Certificates" it appears for all domains created, even those domains which doesn't match with the server certificate name.

    Implementing a feature at "SSL/TLS Certificates" to avoid displaying the default server certificate for customers within "Domain > example.com > Hosting Settings > Security" can avoid having a customer use a certificate which doesn't match with their domain.

  5. Add possibility to use {{ panel link }} placeholder for Site creation Plesk notification

    At the moment it is not possible to use {{ panel_link }} placeholder for "Site creation" Plesk notification task.

    Instead of value for {{ panel_link }} placeholder, the empty text is shown in the received mail.

    It will be very helpful to use this placeholder for example when we create a Customer Account with the website.

    Example:

    New user account can now be used to log in via following URL using the username and password you assigned: http://www.{{ domain }}:8880 if the dns is pointing to the site, or at any time you can use {{ panel_link }}

  6. Exclude specific files/folder from an specific

    Provide the possibility to exclude specific file/folder from an specific domain as an example:

    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/example
    /var/www/vhosts/example1.com/httpdocs/example2

    As for now, It's only possible to exclude httpdocs/example which will include all folder under httpdocs named "example" for all the domains and not only for a specific domain.

  8. Add the "Switch View" button in Plesk interface for Resellers

    When logged in to the panel as the Administrator, it is possible to switch between Service Provider and Power User views using a button in the bottom left corner.

    However, this button is missing when logged in as a Reseller. It is still possible to switch the view via Tools & Settings > Interface Preferences, but it is not as convenient.

    Please add the "Switch View" button for Resellers as well.

  9. Mail Importing improvement

    Within the "Mail Importing" section it would be helpful to show percentages of work (and other stats) and a remove button to hide old unnecessary import requests.
    Best regards.

  10. Make more than one server-wide certificate available for selection in Hosting Settings

    Currently, only the default certificate in Tools & Settings > SSL/TLS Certificates is globally available for domains to choose from Hosting Settings. Make it possible to select a server-wide certificate other than the default one.

  11. <request_body>

    like <request_subject> allows to repeat the subject in the auto-reply, it would be nice to have a similiar tag like "<request_body>" making it possible to include the sender's mail body in the auto-reply message body.
    This would make the handling of web form request a lot easier on plesk.

  12. Add field of last time the password was changed in the mailing list

    Due to IT security implementations it is often necessary to know when users changed their password to force them to change it again.
    From this change, new features could be added to improve the service.
    -Number of saved passwords
    -Force password change every x days
    -Send password change reminder

  13. Add ability to manage access to the log files for domain owners

    It would be nice security improvement to add ability to manage access to the log files for domain owners: to be able to restrict them from viewing logs or allows them to do so

  15. Locale management directly from Plesk panel

    Suggested feature implementation would allow to create custom locales from panel interface. Including database in an implementation should secure custom locales from being overwritten during updates.
    Client's business environment will gain in easiness of management and consistency.

    Customers with international clientele would benefit from it.

  16. SSH Access with one/single user for all the subscription

    SSH Access with one/single user for all the subscription.

    As example: Now it's possible to provide SSH access for the user of the subscription, but not to a single user to manage only/all the subscription.

  17. allow the plesk git extension to show the last commit not the penultimate one

    allow the plesk git extension to show the last commit not the penultimate one after clicking on the pull updates button. This only seems to get updated after some time.

  18. Ability to clone Drupal instances automatically

    Currently the ability to clone Drupal instances is missing in Plesk: you can install it, but if you would like to have similar instance on other domain, work should be done manually and even that way manually added instance will not be detected by Plesk utilities. Drupal is one of the widely used CMS and it will be good to have extended feature for managing it in Plesk.

  20. Change the backup structure so all files and directories regarding one backup are located in one archive

    It'd be easier for to have a directory created for each backup instead of having all the files in, for example, /var/lib/psa/dumps/.
    For example, I'd like to have a structure like this:
    backup_2011300010.tgz that contains all the files and directories for this backup.
