Hello,

Is there is an option to disable User Manager from cPanel? I know about the various settings in WHM/Tweak Settings. I also have looked in my feature lists, Disabled and Default, and can not see any relevant setting. So i turned off all features in my demo cpanel to see what would happen, but it gave me an empty cPanel WITH User Manager still available, however without any configurable options.

My Configurations if needed are as follows:

WHM 11.60.0.15
cPanel 11.60.0.15
cPanel Theme: Paper Lantern Retro
CENTOS 7.2 x86_64

Thanks.

Hello,

User Manager is not a feature that you can enable or disable. It's considered a collection of features (e.g. Email, FTP, Web Disk). For example, if you wanted to prevent email account creation via User Manager, you'd disable the "Email Account Manager" feature.

Thank you.

I'd still like to see a way to disable this. It is very confusing for my users, and I was planning on this being available based on your response in this thread: "User Manager" remove icon in cpanel

We run cPanel for internal usage and do not allow or enable mail or FTP.

If you disable each of the features related to user manager, it doesn't make sense to have user manager enabled/visible for users if none of the users they create can actually do anything.

Hello @satchelp,

There's no functionality to disable the User Manager at this time, however I encourage you to open a feature request if you'd like to see an option to do that:

Submit A Feature Request

In the meantime, you could create a custom style that hides the sidebar so it's not visible in cPanel. Here are some resources should you decide to do that:

Guide to cPanel Interface Customization - cPanel Style Development - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation
Guide to cPanel Interface Customization - The styles.css File - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation
Server Information in Sidebar

Thank you.
