Dear Plesk Support,
I would like to specify a fixed prefix and/or suffix for additional FTP users.
My current Problem is, that I’m creating subscriptions over the XML API, which btw is really nice, and set the FTP username and password, as required. The Problem occurs with the name of the FTP users.
For Example: I’m going and let the Subscriptions have an internal ID:
(WS stands for Webspace)
So the FTP Username is going to be something like “ws10001ftpdefault” or “ws10001ftp1”.
But when someone is able to create a FTP user called “ws10050ftpdefault”, in case I’m using this pattern, then he is able to do so (when at the moment there are not 50 webspaces), but when the 50ths webspaces is ordered its FTP username is already taken and I will have to handle the error.
Other Control panels like Froxlor or CPanel support something like this:
another method would be something like this:
(like with the MySQL Databases & usernames)
so no matter what the ftpname is going to be, it’s unique for every customer.
If I’m wrong and there is another workaround or this option is already there, correct me please :)
Add to Plesk option to force Plesk customers to create their new FTP users according to template: plesk-customer-name_ftp-username.
