TOPIC: Would Be Nice to Have Transfer Successul Automation

Would Be Nice to Have Transfer Successul Automation 4 years 10 months ago #61

I am not sure what would have to be done with WHMCS, to get this fixed or added, as I am not sure if ResellersClub has an API for this, but here is what I need help with.

When someone transfers a domain name to me using resellersclub AFTER the transfer is complete WHMCS does not change the status from Pending Transfer to Active like I say not sure if ResellerClub has an API to talk to WHMCS to make this happen. While the domain status is set to "Pending Transfer" the client is unable to manage their domain, even if they should be able to do so in WHMCS.

So my question, is this something ResellerClub-Mod could work on that will give us this capability? Or would I need to talk this over with Matt at WHMCS?

This sure would take the work load down if we can automate it.

Thanks for reading!

Hi Roy,

I think this should be achieved with the resellerclubsync.php? Contact Matt first and let me know what he think about. We could made an additional script for that which checks pending transfers in WHMCS against resellerclub.

Hi Marco

OK, I will check with Matt this week and see if it can be done in WHMCS, or if they have plans for adding it and I will let you know as soon as I hear something. Yeah that tool would be really nice, one less thing to worry about.

OK, here is what I found out regarding this, it appears that WHMCS already has this capability.

Now if you go by JUST the WHMCS Knowledgebase you can be mislead a little, found here
docs.whmcs.com/ResellerClub

At the above link you find this information
==============================================================
Expiry Date Syncronisation

WHMCS can sync the expiry dates of domains you have registered with ResellerClub. This is particularly useful for domain transfers where the expiry date cannot be calculated automatically. We recommend running the sync once per week. To do that, you need to setup a cron job to run the file modules/registrars/resellerclub/resellerclubsync.php using a command such as the one below.

php -q /home/username/public_html/modules/registrars/resellerclub/resellerclubsync.php
==============================================================

Two (2) KEY things here:
1) The WHMCS Knowledgebase does not mention anything about changing status of a Successful Transfer from "Pending Transfer" to "Active"
2) WHMCS recommends that the /resellerclubsync.php only be run ONCE a week. So if you have a Successful transfer just moments after the /resellerclubsync.php Cron has run and you are running the Cron once a week, it could be an entire WEEK before the status is moved from "Pending Transfer" to "Active" - Which isn't acceptable by my standards.

What I would like to do ideally, in a ideal world, is to have JUST have a Cron job to just check the "Pending Transfer" maybe 3 to 4 times a day, so that my clients account can be updated quickly when their domain name transfers, so that can begin to manage it immediately.

But as it is now, I will have to run the ENTIRE /resellerclubsync.php Cron once a day, as more than that is just TOO MUCH synching ALL domains. I will have to go against WHMC's own recommendation and run this script once a day.

I, myself am not a programmer, so if any smart guys or gals out there think you could build a file that would check JUST the "Pending Transfer" to "Active" status at ResellerClub, I one would be very interested in such a tool.

Thanks
Roy

Hi Roy,

The build-in sync file does in fact only update the expire date for successfully tranferred domains and I dont know why not btw also the status.

I think the same sync file should also set such domains to active when the exipre date has been updated.

We may offer this script with the next big update for the FREE tools box.

Marco

That would be awesome, a small little thing that would be awesome to have and save a lot of work. I know I would appreciate it very much.
