Description

This function retrieves a list of sample security questions.

Warning:

We strongly recommend that you use UAPI instead of cPanel API 2. However, no equivalent UAPI function exists.

Examples


 WHM API (JSON)
https://hostname.example.com:2087/cpsess###########/json-api/cpanel?cpanel_jsonapi_user=user&cpanel_jsonapi_apiversion=2&cpanel_jsonapi_module=SourceIPCheck&cpanel_jsonapi_func=samplequestions

Note:

 For more information, read our Calls from the WHM API documentation.

 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
 
// Retrieve list of security questions.
$get_security_questions = $cpanel->api2(
    'SourceIPCheck', 'samplequestions'
		
 );

Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 

 LiveAPI Perl Module
my $cpliveapi = Cpanel::LiveAPI->new(); # Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
 
# Retrieve list of security questions.
my $get_security_questions = $cpliveapi->api2(
    'SourceIPCheck', 'samplequestions',
    
 );

Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)

Warning:

In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs.

cPanel API 2 calls that use cPanel tags vary widely in code syntax and in their output. For more information, read our Deprecated cPanel Tag Usage documentation. Examples are only present in order to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI.

 Command Line
cpapi2 --user=username SourceIPCheck samplequestions

Notes:

  • You must URI-encode values.
  • username represents your account-level username.
  • For more information and additional output options, read our Guide to cPanel API 2 documentation or run the cpapi2 --help command. 
  • We introduced this functionality in cPanel & WHM version 56.
