Assign client automatically to Client Group during registration

Recommended Posts

I'd like to automatically assign a client to a Client Group during registration, based on the url OR template they're visiting. I've tried to find more information in the documentation, but I'm afraid there isn't much information about this subject either. 

Do know if Is it possible to:

  • Set Client Group by adding a parameter to the url?

I'm looking forward to your thoughts!

I would have thought a ClientAdd hook would work for this situation - specifically you're just changing the groupid value (the client group ID value) based on parameters in the URL (which you should be able to grab in the hook).

That's a great idea @brian! I've tried to write a little hook by myself. Unfortunately I couldn't get it to work. Any thoughts?

<?php
add_hook('ClientAdd', 1, function($vars) {
        return array(
            'create' => true,
            'groupid' => 3,
        );
    }
);

The URL if statement would look something like this:

$url = 'https://' . $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if (strpos($url,'CNAMEdomain') !== false) { }

ClientAdd doesn't support a return, so you need to do the needed items within the hook;

<?php
add_hook('ClientAdd', 1, function($vars)
{
    try
    {
        $client = \WHMCS\User\Client::find($vars['userid']);
        if ($client)
        {
            $client->groupid = 3;
            $client->save();
        }
    }
    catch (Exception $e)
    {
        //TODO error handler
    }


});

That's amazing Steven! I've added the URL if-then-else and tried it in our live environment. I can confirm it works. 

<?php
add_hook('ClientAdd', 1, function($vars) {
    $url = 'https://' . $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    $client = \WHMCS\User\Client::find($vars['userid']);

    try {
            if ($client) {
                if (strpos($url, 'CNAMEdomain.com') !== false) {
                    $client->groupid = 3;
                    $client->save();
                } else /** Default group **/ {
                    $client->groupid = 1;
                    $client->save();
                }
            }
        }

    catch (Exception $e) {
            //TODO error handler
    }

});

p.s. where did you learn that ClientAdd doesn't support a return? I couldn't find it in the documentation.

usually, the hooks do one of three things - return HTML (e.g the output hooks), return arrays (e.g the areapage hooks), or return nothing - which means you use them internally like @steven99 has above - nice hook btw... and saves me having to write it! thanks.png

one thought on your tweak @Tapeix - and this depends on what you mean by "default group", because when a client registers with WHMCS, their default client group value is 0 (e.g they're not in a client group)... so if that's what you want to do for those who aren't coming from your URL, then you would set it to 0 rather than 1 (actually, you wouldn't even bother to set it to 0 as it would do that by itself unless you tell it otherwise)... however, if you are wanting new registrations to be in either groups 3 or 1 (and they both exist) then the hook is fine.
