ISPConfig Unable to add Shell Users via API

    Since upgrading to ISPConfig I have been unable to create new shell users via the remote API.

    I get the error: directory_error_notinweb

    A quick look shows this error comes from this location:
    Script = /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/classes/
    Function = shelluser_dir

    And a bit of trial an error (and dumping the $app data to inspect it), it seems the following line always returns 0, so will always fail:
    $primary_id = (isset($app->tform->primary_id))?$app->tform->primary_id:$app->remoting_lib->primary_id;
    $app->tform->primary_id = 0
    $app->remoting_lib->primary_id = 0

    Adding a shell user in the ISPConfig control panel works fine, but I need it working via the remote API as we have built a separate control panel system that leverages the API.

    Any tips on how to get this to work?

    I'm getting exactly this error now and I'm using ispconfig 3.1.13. I have a script which runs through and creates the Client, Domain, Database user, and Database. It fails when trying to create the shell user:

    The variables $domain_id, $shell_username, $shell_password, $client_id are all set correctly

    $shellParams = array(
        'server_id' => 1,
        'parent_domain_id' => $domain_id,
        'username' => $shell_username,
        'password' => $shell_password,
        'quota_size' => -1,
        'active' => 'y',
        'puser' => 'web' . $domain_id,
        'pgroup' => 'client' . $client_id,
        'shell' => '/bin/bash',
        'dir' => '/var/www/clients/client' . $client_id . '/web' . $domain_id;
        'chroot' => 'jailkit'
    // Shell user
     $shell_user_id = $client->sites_shell_user_add( $session_id, $client_id, $shellParams );
    Any ideas on this would be welcome.
