I really hate to ask this, since I'm sure its already been discussed.

I am trying to basically do a whmreq via Perl in order to assign an ACL to a specific reseller.

I don't mind also just setting the options individually, if that is also possible.

Is there also a recommended way of adding Account Creation Limits to a reseller via the API?

Chances are if you are using the APIs to create resellers, you are creating many similar resellers with the same account creation limits. You may wish to pre-define these ACLs via the WHM interface then simply use the API to call the ACL by name rather than specify these permissions individually for each reseller.

Right, but it doesn't seem like that can change the account creation limits through there.

This section:

Limit the total number of accounts drew1 can create to accounts.

Limit accounts that drew1 can create by Resource Usage. (Access to packages the user creates is automatically granted unless account creation has been limited to pre-assigned packages below. Access is not automatically granted to system/root created packages unless specifically defined below.)
Resource Usage Limits
Resource Max Allowed Overselling Allowed
Disk Space MB*
Bandwidth MB*
*Unlimited is not acceptable here. If you wish to only limit one of these, just set the other limit to a very large number.

Overselling means that the reseller will be limited by the resources they have actually used instead of the resources they have been allocated.

Actual refers to the sum of the usage of all the resellers accounts.
Allocated refers to the sum of the maximum allowed usage for all the resellers accounts.

Specify which packages drew1 can use for account creation.
You need to specify the number of accounts that drew1 can create per package below.

Limit the amount of accounts that drew1 can create per package. (This implies the option above.)

Has there ever been a solution to this? I am trying to do the same thing. I'm interfacing with WHM through modernbill and need Reseller accounts created with the option "Limit the amount of accounts that user can create per package." because if the option isn't set than the user will see all other global packages on the server (not good when its a shared/reseller mixed server).

I can do the disk space limiting and overselling options through modernbill but there doesn't seem to be any options for limiting the amount of accounts a user can create per package. Basically, I just need a way to create resellers through the API who can only see their own packages, and not global packages.

Is your inquiry about the capabilities of Parallels Plesk Billing (formerly: Modernbill) or with the actual cPanel/WHM APIs you can use for constructing your own custom billing solution?

I generally recommend inquiries about specific billing applications be addressed to the manufacturer of the application you are inquiring about.

Right now, the setacls XML API call does not provide access to the reseller limits options, only to the reseller ACL list.

You could POST the variables to:

https://IP:2087/scripts2/editressv

if you wish to automate the process. Take a look at the source in the Edit Privileges/Nameservers for the specific variable names that are sent to editressv.

Let me know if you have any questions.
