Client API for WHMCS

Pavel Odintsov shared this idea 5 years ago
Under Consideration

Hello,

We need ability to provide client API access to services (order, reboot, change password), invoices (create, pay form credit) and tickets (create, read and write). Will be fine got REST'ful api with JSON.

At now we can't provide API for clients due to only admins restriction.

I would absolutely love this!! I've wanted to make an open source detached frontend for WHMCS for ages.

Hello, is this still only under consideration, or has there been some development progress on this? This is pretty much a big mis on WHMCS side for creating an Admin Only Api. Please consider this a bit faster, it has been 4 years and I am really looking forward to using the entire api including a client side. There are much less settings and fields to work on for the client side - all of which can be retrieved using the Admin api anyway.

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion and votes thus far.

There are currently no plans to implement a client-side API. However please keep voting and suggestion your use-cases, and should demand for this increase in future (up from the current 3.25 votes per year) then we can certainly reconsider.

Hi, it would be awesome for a client side api because then i could link whmcs with my android/ios apps and have my customers buy product and services from within my apps as well as the other services they can order through there.

The lack of this is currently making my administration process longer and more troublesome. So integration on this level that is possible with a client side api is a must for companies like mine that do things that are unexpected or go beyond expectations.

I am a programmer/hosting provider and this is the way all my projects are heading to allow for better integration as if a project has good integration with other things my clients are more likely to use that product. As big businesses and companies are moving this way as its the future of things and the modern way of doing things.
