Hey there! The best information I have for this will be found here:


as that covers creating a token, assigning permissions, and using the token with API calls. There is a Curl example provided at the bottom of the page as well, but I don't have any examples on my end for the C# language.

Using Cpanel API - Authentication username password
The first way is to use the cPanel API. To do this, you will need to send a POST request to the /login page of the cPanel server. The body of the request should contain the following JSON:

{"cpanel_jsonapi_user":"your_cpanel_username","cpanel_jsonapi_module":"CPanel","cpanel_jsonapi_func":"get_security_token","cpanel_jsonapi_version":2}
The response from the server will be a JSON object containing the security token.
