Ability to create custom cPanel application links

Zomex shared this idea 1 year ago
Under Consideration

Hello,

This is just a quick idea, it would be great if there was the option to create custom links in cPanel, the option to reference a icon URL, add a link title and URL.

This could be implemented under setup > application links > configure cPanel

It would be easy to implement but very powerful for WHMCS users as it would allow us to create more focused/branded links especially useful for those of us with our main website outside of WHMCS.

Regards,

Jack

I would like the ability to add custom Quick Shortcuts, such as shortcuts to end-user's access to plugins installed on the cPanel server.

Specifically I would like an Application Link that goes to my software installer. #1 support question we get is "how do I install wordpress" and it would be wonderful if "Install Software" was right there in the application links. A custom App Link that passes the necessary parameters to cPanel would be ideal.

Hi Will,

This is something which would be configured in cPanel directly: https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/SDK/Tutorial+-+Add+a+Link+to+the+cPanel+Interface

But it's not external is an internal cPanel item already. I just want to add it to WHMCS like the others.

Would like to be able to add a custom Quick Shortcut in WHMCS to provide a customer access to third party cPanel Plugins. Specifically we use Installatron and would like customers to link directly to the Installatron Application Installer from WHMCS Product Details page.

Hi there,

To create a custom link, you would need to duplicate the existing link format used in /modules/servers/cpanel/templates/overview.tpl and then specify the "app" value for the cPanel page you wish to access.

The app value must be compatible with this cPanel API command to be accessible via Single Sign On: https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/DD/WHM+API+1+Functions+-+get_users_links

Where does one find or create the "app" value for a cPanel page?

I would also like to know how you find the app value too!
