[ERROR] Dynamic DNS update for base-domain not allowed through GUI

[ Edited ]

I've updated the EdgeMax-Routers from my customers today and i'm facing an error in the web-based configuration for the dynamic update services.

If one is using namecheap as domain provider you have to use "@" as hostname to update the base-domain itself without having www.domain.tld for example. If one just wants "domain.tld" updated, you have to use "@" as provided argument. 

However this is not allowed in the GUI (see screenshot attached).

Please fix it in 1.5.1.

Thanks

P.S.: Via CLI this works:

set service dns dynamic interface eth2 service namecheap host-name @ 
set service dns dynamic interface eth2 service namecheap login domain.tld
set service dns dynamic interface eth2 service namecheap password 1235..
commit
save

 See second screenshot after modifying via CLI.

Re: [ERROR] Dynamic DNS update for base-domain not allowed through GUI

Good catch! Yeah that looks like the GUI validation is too strict and we'll need to fix that. For now you can use the CLI configuration to set it as a workaround. Thanks!
