How to add subdomain to account under a reseller through API2

    Hello all.

    I have a master reseller account under which customer accounts are registered. I would like to add addon domains to these customer accounts using a cpanel instance authenticated with the master reseller account.

    This is trivially done using the web interface. However, when I try to do it using the cpanel sdk/api2, I can only add the addon domain to the reseller account itself, not its sub-accounts.

    I'm using PHP. Here's the relevant code-snippet adding the addon domain. I understand that the api call used doesn't have the "user" parameter which I was lead to believe it had, and that this is the reason the domain is added to the reseller:

    Code:
    ...
    $cpCfg = array(
        'cpanel'=>array(
            'service'=>array(
                'cpanel' => array(
                    'host' => $ip,
                    'user' => $rusr,
                    'password' => $rpw,
                )   
            )   
        )   
    );
    
    $cp = Cpanel_PublicAPI::getInstance($cpCfg);
    $queryMF = array(
        'module' => 'AddonDomain',
        'function' => 'addaddondomain',
    );
    $queryArgs = array(
        'user' => $usr,
        'dir' => $domain,
        'newdomain' => $domain,
        'subdomain' => $domain
    );
    $response = $cp->cpanel_api2_request('cpanel', $queryMF, $queryArgs);
    ...
    So, the question is, how can I have this effect the sub-account (here contained in $usr) instead of the reseller accounts?
    I have searched wide and far already, but I have yet to find something that actually solves the problem.

    Any help or tips will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Regards,
    devel

    Are you using the user's name, or the resellers name, when performing the login?

    Hi Kenneth. Thanks for your reply.

    I'm using the reseller's username and password when logging in. The problem is that I don't have the passwords of the accounts under the reseller at hand--otherwise I would have used those directly.

    Bumping this thread after almost two weeks. Hope that's not disallowed. Unfortunately I still haven't been able to find a working solution. Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

    Have you tried the API call using the user's username and the reseller password?

    Hi cPAndrewHodge. Thank you for the tip, it worked!. I would never have attempted that on my own, and I am very surprised that it is implemented like so.

    I would mark the thread title with [SOLVED], but it seems I cannot change it myself.
