Updates the permissions of an existing SPanel admin account.


Additional parameters:

tokenstringYesAuthorizing API token – check API Basics for more information.
actionstringYesThe category and function being executed.
usernamestringYesAdmin account username.
permissionsstring|arrayYesPermissions array or ‘all’ string for full root permissions.

When using a permissions array, you can set the category sub-array to ‘all’ string to include every child page available or use an array with every page that you wish to include, for example:
  • If you use [ 'server' => 'all' ], all pages under server category will be included in the newly created user permissions list;
  • If you use [ 'server' => [ 'information', 'status' ] ], the newly created user will access only the pages specified.
Check the full API call example below for further clarification.

The structure and an always up-to-date list of all available admin user permissions can be obtained by running the admin/listadminuserpermissions API call. The list is pulled directly from SPanel’s system in real-time.


$endpointUrl = '';

$postData = [
  'token' => 'provided_auth_token', // Check API Basics for more information
  'action' => 'admin/updateadminpermissions',
  'username' => '[email protected]',
  //'permissions' => 'all' //Set all permissions
  'permissions' => [
                       'server' => 'all' //access every server page
                       'accounts' => [ 'manage', 'create' ] //access only the 'manage' and 'create' pages
