Before Using Reference
This section contains information required for proper reading of the reference sections.    The XSD Representation Conventions (on page 10) section explains designations used in graphical representation of XML objects described in the current document. The Data Types (on page 10) section contains classification of object types described in the current document. The How to Analyze API RPC Schema (on page 12) section explains how to read an XSD schema using user agents or text editors. This can be helpful, if you want to create a valid packet according only to XSD files.

In this chapter:
XSD Representation Conventions ................................................................... 10 Data Types .................................................................................................... 10 How to Analyze API RPC Schema .................................................................. 12

XSD Representation Conventions
The protocol functionality is described using an XSD schema. This document uses Altova XMLSpy rules and agreements to represent the scheme graphically. For details on the rules and agreements, visit the following URL: http://www.altova.com/manual2007/XMLSpy/spyenterprise/contentmodelview.htm.

Data Types
Each node of the XML schema is of a specified type. For details on XML data types, visit the following URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xmlschema-2-20010502/. In API Reference, a node can be of a simple or a complex type. If the type of the node is complex and has a name, the name of the type is followed by a filename. The filename specifies the file where the type is located. If the type is not named, it is called complex in the reference. If the type is simple, it can be a standard type or its modification. A list of standard simple types presented in the following table.

How to Analyze API RPC Schema
The following instructions can help you analyze an XML API schema.

If you use API RPC 1.4.0.0 or higher:   Start with the main agent_input.xsd schema. It lists all supported operator elements within the packet element. For example,

On the above figure, complex data type RequestPacketType lists all operator elements supported in API RPC 1.4.0.0. These operators are: server, client, domain, etc. Each operator has a matching request data type (the type attribute). This data type describes the structure of the operator. To see the structure of a certain operator, you need to find the low-level 'input' schema where its data type is defined. File agent_input.xsd lists all subsequent schemas as follows:

Before Using Reference

13

The schema name contains the name of the operator you need and the _input suffix.  Open the schema matching any operator. It will contain several complex data types, including the request data type specified for the operator. For example, here is the contents of the client_input.xsd schema (v.1.4.0.0) matching the client operator.

Before Using Reference

14

The client operator is described by type ServerOperatorType (highlighted). To see its structure, click the + sign to the left and expand the section.  Type ServerOperatorType describes the client operator as follows: It lists all operations that can be applied to Plesk Client (get_protos, get, set, srv_man, etc.). The same principle is true for any operator: its request data type (specified in the agent_input.xsd schema) declares operations that can be applied to the relevant object.

Each operation element is also presented by a special data type specified in the type attribute. Operation data types are normally defined in the same schema. For example, the set operation (type AdminSetType) is defined in the same client_input.xsd schema as follows:

All nested elements (operation parameters) are described by specific data types. You can find their definitions either in the same schema, or in the included schema:

Thus, when you analyse the schemas, the approach is as follows: start with the main schema to choose the operator and drill down to the subsequent data types that can be found in the included schemas.

Before Using Reference

15

If you use API RPC 1.3.5.1 or lower, find the required input schema by its name. The schema describes the structure of the XML packet within the packet element: It contains a single operator element that, in turn, contains some operation elements. Operations are structured as described above: Each operation is a complex data type that contains sequences of various parameters. Some parameters are fully defined within the operation element, others have just a complex data type specified against them. Such data types can be defined in the same schema or in some other schema included into this one with the include directive.

Representation of Object Descriptor
Every object descriptor is composed of a set of property descriptors and correlation between properties of the object. Its graphical representation is as follows:

The descriptor node is required. It specifies object descriptor. Data type: ObjectDescriptor (descriptor.xsd).  The property node is required. It specifies one or more property descriptors. For details, refer to the Descriptor of Property (on page 17) section. Data type: PropertyDescriptor (descriptor.xsd). The bind node is optional. It defines correlation between properties of the object. For details, refer to the Bind Parameters (on page 22) section. Data type: PropertyDescriptor (descriptor.xsd).

Before you start using descriptors, read more about descriptor filtering issues in the Filters of Descriptors (on page 23) section. For more info on descriptors, refer to the Descriptors Overview section of the Programming Guide.

In this chapter:

Property Descriptor
Property descriptor is comprised of parameters that specify an object property. Its graphical representation is as follows:

  

The property node is required. It specifies a property descriptor. Data type: PropertyDescriptor (descriptor.xsd). The name node is required. It specifies identifier of the property. Data type: string. The type node is required. It specifies a type of property value. Data type: string. Allowed values: string | password | int | uint | float | boolean | bytes | date Where uint is an unsigned integer. Date is stored in timestamp format. In 'bytes' type -1 (value) = UNLIMITED

The enum node is optional. It specifies values of the property in case the property has limited set of values. Data type: EnumElementType (descriptor.xsd).  The value node is required if the enum node is specified. It defines a value of the property. Data type: string.

Representation of Object Descriptor

18

The label node is optional. It specifies brief explanation of the property value in Plesk CP. This value should be equal to locale key name of the property. To retrieve locale key value, use the locale operator. Data type: string. The hint value is optional. It specifies the hint that can be seen if you point cursor on the property label in Plesk CP. Data type: string.

   

The default-value node is optional. It specifies default value of the property. Data type: none. The writable-by node is optional. It specifies users who can edit the property. Data type: sting. Allowed values: none | admin | client | domain-admin. The label node is optional. It specifies brief explanation of the property in Plesk CP. This value should be equal to locale key name of the property. To retrieve locale key value, use the locale operator. Data type: string. The hint node is optional. It specifies hint that can be seen if you point cursor on the property label in Plesk CP. Data type: string. The extension node is optional. It defines data specific for the object. For details, refer to the Extension of Permissions Descriptor (on page 18), Extension of Hosting Settings Descriptor (on page 19) and Extension of Limits Descriptor (see page 20) sections. Data type: any.

 

Samples The following property descriptor specifies FTP quota.
<property> <name>ftp_quota</name> <type>int</type> <default>-1</default> <writable-by>admin</writable-by> </property>

The following property descriptor specifies PHP support.
<property> <name>php</name> <type>boolean</type> <default>1</default> <writable-by>admin</writable-by> <writable-by>client</writable-by> <writable-by>domain-admin</writable-by> </property>

Representation of Object Descriptor

19

Extension of Permissions Descriptor
This extension is used to define correlations between types of users and permissions. If you send request packet containing the get-permission-descriptor operation, the respond from the server will contain permission level in the level node nested into the extension node. The graphical representation of the construction is as follows:

This node can be empty, or contain one of the following values:    client. The parameter is visible to clients. domain. The parameter is visible to domain administrators. mail. The parameter is visible to mail account users.

Note: You can specify multiple service parameters in one extension node.

Extension node sample
<packet> <property> <name>manage_virusfilter</name> <type>boolean</type> <default-value>false</default-value> <writable-by>admin</writable-by> <label>cl_perm__manage_virusfilter</label> <extension> <level>client</level> <level>domain</level> <level>mail</level> </extension> </property>

For details on permissions, refer to the Limits and Permissions (on page 35) (client's settings), or Limits, Permissions and Hosting Settings (on page 305) (domain and domain administrator's settings) sections.

Extension of Hosting Settings Descriptor
This extension is used to define visible properties on managing Plesk objects. If you send a request packet containing the get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation, the service node nested into the extension node will contain if a property is visible when you manage a specified object. The graphical representation of the construction is as follows:

This node can be empty, or contain one of the following values:    domain. The parameter is visible when managing domains. subdomain. The parameter is visible when managing sub-domains. webuser. The parameter is visible when managing web users.

In this case there will not be filter-id and id nodes in the response packet. refer to the Descriptors section of the Programming Guide. If the filter node is not blank (<filter/>) the server will return descriptor for an object. In this case there will be filter-id and id nodes in the response packet. There are client-level and domain-level filters for object descriptors. Multiple relevant nodes are treated as logical conjunction of the rules. or they can specify multiple domains belonging to a specified client by client ID or login name. but can contain multiple filtering parameters presented by the same node in XML schema. A single filter node cannot contain filtering parameters presented by different nodes in XML schema. .

Most often used to provide a way to associate a domain name with an IPv4 address in the IN-ADDR. then it can not have any other record types. PTR (Domain name pointer). MX records provide one level of indirection in mapping the domain part of an email address to a list of host names which are meant to receive mail for that domain name. Template is a server-level set of rules for zone files of the newly created domains: When a new domain or domain alias is created. Specifies a host name (which must have an A record associated with it). Plesk automatically generates zone file for it basing on server templates. NS (Authoritative name server). so CNAME only provides one layer of indirection. an IPv4 32-bit address) associated with a domain name. Provides a general indirection facility for DNS records. where DNS information can be found about the domain name to which the NS record is attached. In addition. and domain or domain alias zone records. and domain_alias_id parameters in a single filter node will be considered invalid by Plesk server. Note that if a domain name has a CNAME record associated with it. Each MX record specifies a domain name (which must have an A record associated with it) and a priority. a list of mail exchangers is then ordered by priority when delivering mail. The following record types are available in Plesk:   A (Address).Supported Operations <filter> <id>1</id> <id>2</id> <id>3</id> </filter> 216 Note: you can use either id. up to 255 bytes in length.

Indicates when the zone data is no longer authoritative. The refresh node is optional. Data type: unsignedInt. Data type: integer. If contact is made the expiry and refresh values are reset and the cycle starts again. The SOA resource record indicates that this DNS name server is the best source of information for the data within this DNS domain. Plesk sets the default value of three hours. Use the 1200 value if your data is volatile and 43200 if not. the status of the local DNS server is returned. Data type: unsignedInt. This is how often (in seconds) the slave name servers check with the primary name server to see if any changes have been made to the domain's zone file. Thus when the ref values expires the slave will attempt to read the SOA record for the zone . at which point it will stop answering queries for the domain. Signed 32-bit value in seconds.

Creating Domain Account
A domain account can be created by Plesk Administrator or by Plesk Client. To register a new domain account in Plesk database, it is enough to specify some general setup information, namely: the domain name, the IP address. If the domain is created by Plesk Administrator, the domain owner (a certain Plesk Client) needs to be specified too. In addition, you can specify various domain settings when creating a domain account (all of them are optional):       Hosting settings (see page 305) Hosting performance settings (see page 327) Limits (see page 305) on use of Plesk resources Domain preferences (see page 326) Domain administrator settings (see page 302) Domain template

A domain account can have all these settings specified, or it can hold just some of them. You can specify domain settings when creating a domain account or later (they can be set using the set operation). The only exception from this rule is a domain template: it cannot be applied to the domain after it is created. To learn more about the domain templates management via API RPC, proceed to section Managing Domain Templates (see page 411).

Getting Information About Domain Accounts
Plesk Administrator can request any information about any domain account registered in Plesk database. Plesk Client can get this information about own domain accounts. This information is as follows:         general information (domain name and id, hosting type, the owner) hosting settings performance settings limits on use of Plesk resources domain preferences domain administrator settings disk usage a domain template used to create a domain

Plesk user can get all information in bulk or specify certain kinds of information (e.g., only hosting settings). The information can be selected for a certain domain, for a group of domains, for all domains belonging to a certain client (or several), or for all domains registered in Plesk. To request the information about domains, use a request XML packet with the get operation.

Notice the difference in these identical packets sent using different versions of API RPC:   versions 1.4.1.2 and earlier return the domain identifier in its id node; versions 1.4.2.0 and later return the filtering parameter (the filter-id node) and the domain identifier (the id node). These two nodes can coincide if the domain was filtered by domain_id.

If you need an example of a particular setting returned in the response get packet, proceed to a related topic of the Domain Settings (on page 295) section. If the request get packet asks for a certain kind of settings, but the specified domain is missing these settings in the database, the response get packet will return the requested node (e.g. prefs) empty:

Deleting Domain Accounts
Domain accounts can be deleted individually or in bulk. Plesk Administrator can delete any domain account available in Plesk, while Plesk Clients can delete their own domain accounts only. Domain accounts are deleted by sending a del request packet to Plesk server.

Request Packet Structure
A request XML packet that deletes domain accounts should include the del operation node:
<packet version=”1.4.2.0”> <domain> <del> … </del> </domain> </packet>

The del node does not have a separate type, it is nested within the DomainTypeRequest complex type (domain_input.xsd). The del node has the following graphics representation:
