ISPConfig: adding Shell Users for Clients who only have the Jailkit option

    I just had a minor issue where I added a shell user to a site but forgot to change the 'Chroot Shell' option on the Shell User page from None to Jailkit.
    A user was thus created who was not chrooted.

    The problem is that the settings for the Client on the Limits tab have SSH-Chroot Options set to only allow Jailkit.

    It seems there is no backend connection between the two settings. I would have expected that for a client who only has the Jailkit option, the addition of a SSH-User would automatically set the Chroot Shell option to Jailkit.

    Am I understanding these options correctly?

    You (as a administrator) have the permission to override all client limits (similar to the root user on linux). So you can create a unjailed user for a client while the client would not be able to do that himself.
