    Hi,

    It looks like in cPanel 11.40 $password variable is unavailable through API anymore. It's just returned as is.


    My logs:
    Code:
    [07-Nov-2013 14:16:11] (exec) SEND:<cpanelaction>
    {"module":"print","reqtype":"exec","func":"","apiversion":"1","args":"$user - $password"}
    </cpanelaction>
    [07-Nov-2013 14:16:11] (exec) RECV:<?xml version="1.0" ?>
    <cpanelresult>{"apiversion":"1","type":"internal","command":"print","source":"internal","data":{"result":"egor1 - $password"},"event":{"result":1}}</cpanelresult>
    
    [07-Nov-2013 14:16:11] JSON_decode: array(6) {
      ["apiversion"]=>
      string(1) "1"
      ["type"]=>
      string(8) "internal"
      ["command"]=>
      string(5) "print"
      ["source"]=>
      string(8) "internal"
      ["data"]=>
      array(1) {
        ["result"]=>
        string(17) "egor1 - $password"
      }
      ["event"]=>
      array(1) {
        ["result"]=>
        int(1)
      }
    }
    As you can see $user was replaced with my username, but $password not.
    Anyone have information about this issue?

    That is correct. As of 11.40, that variable is no longer available; it was removed as a security feature. There are other ways to get where you're going on this, including creating a session on behalf of a cPanel user by a WHM user. Please feel free to contact integration@cpanel.net with questions about changes to your process.
