    In many of the ISPConfig functions, a "client_id" is needed for use. For example, in the "add_client" functionality, there is an option to enter "parent_id".

    How can one get this parent_id from the ISPConfig user interface?

    What function can one execute to get it?

    Is one supposed to query the client DB table directly to get it?

    See function client_get_id($sys_userid) in API docs. Please post API and dev related questions in the Developer forum.

    Thanks again for the response.

    At first, I was doing a select on the "client" table and using the "client_id" directly.

    Can you please confirm that this would/could not work?

    Also, it is my understanding that the sys_userid is the "system id" of the person currently logged in.

    How would this work in the case of a remote user (since this is required to use the API to begin with) - or - am I missing something?

    Thats absolutely ok and the preferred way.

    Thats correct too.

    All functions that get executed by a remote user have admin permissions. So basically the remote user is a ISPConfig administrator.

    The client_get_id function is used when you need to know which client owns a record. E.g. you querid ispconfig for a mail domain and you want to know the owner of that domain.

    Is this something that would work to get the correct client_id? When querying direct from the DB, the other functionality is still not working -so - I am thinking of trying this approach.

    Can you confirm whether or not it would get the needed data?

    $record_record = $client->client_get_by_username($session_id, $username);

    $sysuserid = $record_record['userid'];

    $sys_userid = $sysuserid;

    $client_record = $client->client_get_id($session_id, $sys_userid);

    Also, I must have some kind of different version because I see:

    Yes. But you can make the code more simple:

    $sys_user_record = $client->client_get_by_username($session_id, $username);
    $client_record = $client->client_get_id($session_id, $sys_user_record['userid']);
