Hi.

When we migrate an account from one server to another using "Transfer Tools" (WHM), Reseller Privilages aren't migrated. The have to be manually set again.

If this is indeed the intended beahviour, then: How should we transfer a Reseller account to keep its privilages?

Thank you for your time.
Ramon.

Hello @Ramon E Navas R,

We changed the default behavior in version 74 so that it's not enabled by default:

Fixed case CPANEL-19730: Transfer Tool: don't enable Copy Reseller Privileges by default.

This is a security-focused change, as administrators should be required to 'opt in' to transferring reseller privileges. Additionally, it makes the behavior in WHM >> Transfer Tool consistent with how /scripts/restorepkg works via the command line.

You can select Copy Reseller Privileges under the list of accounts to transfer in WHM >> Transfer Tool interface to ensure the reseller privileges are migrated.

Thank you.
