Question remote framework - is it customer or admin side?

Hi all,
I explain subject of this thread as soon as possible.

My web site is hosted on a platform with ISPConfig + remote framework.

I am planning to develop a plugin for my site to integrate some informations inside my web pages. I asked to my web admin for creating a remote user and set some grants on it.

When my web admin creates my remote user, he uses a different username and sets different grants.
My remote user is totally free from my web user. So my grants are totally different.

With my web user I am able to get only my web site informations (obviously). On the other hand with remote user I am able to get informations about the whole basket of customers of my hosting.

So, this is the reason of my title-question?

Is the remote framework so useful for customer? How can an admin offer a service based on the remote framework to his customer if there is no kind of unique corrispondence from web user and remote user and grants on actions?

Is there a way to create an unique link from web_user grants to remote_user grants?

I know, maybe is not so clear for me the remote framework's role and his intentions.

I hope my questions are clear.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

The remoting API is a low level API. It is made e.g. to allow hosting company to bind their ispconfoig systems to their book keping or order systems. Access to the remote API shall never be granted to a customer as no access restrictions apply on it!

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
