Old Sub Accounts API

This user guide only applies if your account and project is on our old platform, i.e. if your project's URL begins with https://xp-dev.com rather than https://<your-account>.xp-dev.com. If your account is on our new platform, you should be using this user guide instead.

Each User Object has the following attributes:

Attribute Description
Username User’s unique username
allowParentProjects If this user is a child user, whether he/she is allowed to create projects on behalf of the parent user
email User’s email address
sizeQuota size quota for user
projectQuota project quota for user, 0 = unlimited
timezone User’s timezone
backups Whether backups are activated for projects owned by this account (Pro option)
ssl Whether SSL is enabled for projects owned by this account (Pro option)
