Hide "upgrade available" notifications when installed version is newer than the published version.

Submitted by - Wednesday
Status: New Idea

Hide upgrade available notifications when the installed version is newer than the published version.  This applies to device updates as well as controller updates.

 

Controller example:

"Update available" is listed when the current controller version is newer than the 'available' version:

Current Version = UCK.mtk7623.v0.6.9.50d7aef.170531.1723
Available Version = UCK.mtk7623.v0.6.4.5f977c5.170420.2106
 
Device example:
"Update" icon shows when the current device version is newer than the 'available' version:
Are you sure you want to upgrade UniFi AP HD from 3.8.3.6587 to 3.7.58.6385?

 

The desired behavior would be for the upgrade notifications to be present only if the available version is greater than the currently installed version for the controller or device.

 

UniFi mac addresses across sites (custom device names)

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

I have a company with 15 sites.

 

I label things like "android-dd0e4a5827ff4139" to more useful things like "Big boss phone"

 

Can you PLEASE make it so that custom device names are tied to the MAC address of those devices AND also make it controller-wide?  If "Big boss phone" moves to a different site, it doesn't show "Big boss phone" it shows that "android-dd0e4a5827ff4139". I have to re-label it for every single site.

 

Decouple Cloud Key Firmware from Controller version.

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

Trying Controller versions (even stable ones) beyond what is the default inside of the Cloud Key firmware always results in a controller downgrade on the next Cloud Key firmware update. Since Controller downgrades aren't supported this means you then need to immediately go back to the Controller you were on and then restore from backup. This takes a silly amount of time.

 

Can we have Cloud Key firmware updates just not mess with the Controller version if it is newer than what is bundled? This would not only save time for those bothering to jump through these hoops currently but would likely encourage more people to try newer stable Controller versions.

Very important option in vouchers page manager. Important!!

Controller - Switch Stats - Graph Utilization %

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

UniFi Controller > Statistics > Switch Stats

 

Current Switch Stats graphs show volume of traffic passed over time which provides a view of data flowing in network.

What it lacks is true port utilization.  Example, is the interface shown below reaching 100% utilization here or not?

PgWzOK9

You would need to use some math to determine this answer today because the graph just says it's passing about 29 GB of traffic every 5 minutes for several hours.

 

Feature Request 1: graph switch stats as utilization by percentage of interface's speed (0%-100%).  This allows you to identify ports that are saturated and may be causing preformance issues. If a port can send 1Gbps and it is, the graph would show 100% utilization.  This new view would be selected using a persistent per-user setting. So when I login, my default view for switch stats would be ports by utilization, but other users can continue using ports by volume graphs (if they wanted) as both view can provide value in their own way.

 

Feature Request 2: Graphs can be shown using fixed y-axis scaling.  This lets you quickly visualize which port is causing the largest load on a given device (one with tallest graph).  This is hard to visualize today because each graph is independently scaling so they all look equally utilized when in actuality, some ports are flowing GB and others MB.  This would enhance request 1 above also.

[Option] Heatmap based on signal level.

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea
Hi, It will be nice to have an option to show the heatmaps that based on signal level. For example, I stay with the phone that running unifi app and point my location on the map. Contoller know my signal level and draw appropriate heatmap in that direction. Then, walk to new location.. Repeat. No need to draw the walls..

While printing vouchers for guests speed limit is included in the results,  make it like this for us to choose if this will be included in the vouchers!!  Its very important.

GUI for Time Based Firewall Rules

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

The Controller must have a simple way to define time slots as well as firewall rules and associate a rule to a slot.

 

This is simple to implement.

 

A little more complex is to have a report/gui that shows at a certain point in time which rules are actives. This because in complex scenarios it could be difficult to understand what's going on. Also to avoid conflicting rules.

 

Similar to:

https://community.ubnt.com/t5/UniFi-Routing-Switching-Feature/Request-Firewall-Filter-Rule-Schedules/idi-p/1777619

 

it is possible but is NOT a way to go as is too complex:

Configure native VLAN on UAP ethernet port

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

For models that support wireless uplink and/or mesh uplink, I need the ability to set the ethernet port to a VLAN.

 

This would be great to handle via 

  1. 802.1x
  2. in the unifi device config
  3. or even a text box in the device config to enter cli configurations that survive reboots. 

Separate setting for wireless client isolation

Currently you need to enable guest policy restrictions to enable this feature. It would be nice to be able to set this independent of the guest policies. (I understand you could just remove the ACLs and enable guest policy for this but that is unintuitive.)

Guest Pass Expiry From Created Date

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Many other guest pass systems allow you to specify the expiry time by either creation date or the first use date.

 

This is similar to other requests to speficy an exact expiry but this would be simpler in the UI for many users creating the guest passes.

Scheduled Firmware Upgrades and Non destructive AP updates.

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Scheduled Firmware Update.

I'm sure I'm not the only person in the whole forum who experienced the following:
We left our Automatic Update on and once we updated our controllers, within seconds all the SSH connections with the server is disconnected because APs went into upgrading mode and Wi-Fi is down. A few minutes later, branches across the country or even the world call and complained that their Internet went down for a few mins.

 

To counter this problem, I'll suggest the following improvements:
1. Add an option to select the scheduled update time under the Automatically Update Firmware column.
2. The update time selected follows the time zone which was configured for the sites. This ease the job for IT if they have overseas sites to manage.

 

Non Destructive AP Update.

As we all know, if we leave the Automatically Update Firmware checked, all the APs will all go down at the same time and we will lose all Wi-Fi access for a few minutes before they came back up when a new firmware arrives. This is a large problem because someone might be doing something when the update is rolling.

 

My suggestion is:
1. Create a database so that the Controller knew which AP is nearby to which AP. Other than that, the controller needs to know which AP can takeover another AP's load if one went down (eg during Upgrading).
2. Update only selected APs at any one time so that this allows other APs to come in and take over their load while they are being upgraded. This reduces impact on the clients. They will simply roam onto another AP when the original AP is undergoing upgrades. 

 

Support this idea by giving it a kudos if you think this is useful for you!

I use Safari as my default browser on macOS and iOS but everytime I login to my broswer i get reminded its not supported. Would be great if it was fully supported.

Add UniFi flag per SSID to have Android/iOS treat wifi like cellular

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

When using very expensive backhaul bandwidth, it would be great to have my UniFis tell my users' Android and iOS devices that they are on "metered bandwidth", which causes them to stop trying to do software updates, photo uploads, etc over this connection.

 

Android requires that DHCP option 43 be unconditionally set to the string "ANDROID_METERED".  More details can be found at: http://www.lorier.net/docs/android-metered

 

iOS apparently sets an Apple-specific flag in the 802.11 beacon. There's a little more detail in: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/199163/how-does-ios-and-os-x-detect-when-a-wi-fi-network-is-a-personal-hotspot/200854

 

 

Smart Radio Management

Submitted by -
Status: Accepted

Hi guys, is there any chance Ubnt can make a function similar to Aruba's Adaptive Radio Management or Ruckus's Channelfly? This could help people with dedicated UniFi Controller to have better performance and allows the UAPs to optimize themselves (controlling Transmit Power and choosing the best Channel) automatically preventing interference from each other without needing a IT. This could really help when it comes to large deployment in companies, saving their IT hours of walking around with WiFi Analyzer tweaking the WiFi. As we all know, as of now setting Transmit Power to Auto is essentially setting it to High and this problem has been known for years. I guess this is a change that benefits most people. 

 

Thanks, 

Jack. 

Config option to disable alert notifications for rogue AP detection

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

5.3.8 seems to have introduced a feature not present in 5.2.9, and not mentioned in the release notes where it generates an alert on detecting a rogue AP.

 

These notifications are not helpful in an environment where your buildings are surrounded by other buildings that broadcast the same SSID.  In my case, part of a University where different departments have their own wifi system but we all broadcast the same University-wide networks in addition to our local ones.

Equally this could be an issue for small businesses in built up areas who use popular 3rd party providers for guest access (such as The Cloud)

 

Within a minute of upgrading to 5.3.8, I'd had 45 notification emails (before disabling email notifications - which now means I can't tell when an AP has crashed or been unplugged), and the notifications continue to roll in on the console every time it refreshes.

 

So a config option please to revert back to the earlier behaviour of not being notified of rogue APs (at least until the more complicated idea of being able to mark rogue APs as good) would be perfect.

Fix the Cloud Key so it doesn't become corrupt with a power loss

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I recently added a UniFi Switch 8 POE-150W to my network and in the process I moved my Cloud Key from being USB powered on an unmanged switch to POE+ on the UniFi Switch. After this process the Cloud Key continually flashed white and would never go blue.

 

I was able to access port 443 but not port 8443. Additionally the Cloud Key continued to report offline in the https://unifi.ubnt.com site. I was able to SSH into the device and it appeared that the Mongo DB had become corrupted (although I'm not 100% sure on that).

 

I searched around for a bit and found other users reporting a similar issue. The only solution I saw was to reset to factory defaults or restore from backup. Not having a backup (my bad) I had to reprovision the network Man Sad

 

Long story short the Cloud Key should be able to better handle a hard power loss...
