Custom URL for "Login to cPanel" and "Quick Shortcuts" buttons



The "Login to cPanel" and "Quick Shortcuts" buttons which use the Single Sign On (SSO) from WHMCS to cPanel send my clients to the URL "server.myhostingsite.com:2083", but I'd like to send them to "cpanel.myclientsite.com", or to "server.mywhitelabelsite.com:2083".

WHMCS uses the "create_user_session" API call from cPanel, and there is a way to manipulate the URL used with the "preferred_domain" parameter.

I guess you could easily add a "SSO URL" option to the WHMCS > Setup > Server options to add a radio to select:
- "Don't change": What happens now (server.myhostingsite.com:2083)
- "This Server Hostname": Use the server hostname + :2083 (server.mywhitelabelsite.com:2083)
- "Client website subdomain": Use a custom subdomain, which by default can be "cpanel" + the client website (cpanel.myclientsite.com)

I agree.
I agree, white labelling must be maintained.
+1 to this!

It's incredibly frustrating to have WHMCS break the white-labelling when a client passes from their account into cPanel. We try really hard to maintain a single set of URLs for our clients, to keep things simple, but then this process breaks it :(
