For home automation it would be great to configure an URL that will be called with JSON-data instead of sending mails („push-API“).
The selection of pushed events can be done with another checkbox on the existing notification page.
it would seem that a simple way to make the topology map a little easier to work with would be to make it an inverse tree - top to bottom instead of left to right. Most screens are are wider than they are tall, and most topology maps seem to be taller than the screens!
Currently there's only a log entry which doesn't really give a lot of informtion why an "attack" was blocked/detected. A seperate (statistics) page with history and maybe more informtions as on why UniFi thinks this was a attack would be very helpful.
When clicking on the "Check for Update" in the Maintenance tab, there should be a "last checked" date/time to let you know that when you indeed clicked on the Check for Update button, that it indeed went out and checked.
As it stands now, the GUI gives you no feedback if the "Check for Update" button worked or not. It just keep saying "Up to Date" but I have no idea if it really checked or not because there is no date/time stamp associated with said click/check.
Often I need to check the IP address of a client (like a server or voip phone). I then need to copy the IP address and paste this in a new window. Would it be possible to just have a direct link?
here for example (yellow highlight)?
Shane L from the UBNT support helped me to get this done with a workaround, but he suggested that I should post a feature request in the forum to get this built into the USG/USG Pro so that the workaround is not be needed anymore in the future.
- ISP provides a modem/router (i.e. 192.168.0.1) which can't be run in bridge mode, but supports DMZ
- USG must be configured as DMZ host (i.e. 192.168.0.10)
- USG 'WAN 1' has the IP 192.168.0.10
- DDNS on the USG sends "192.168.0.10" to no-ip, even though 'dynupdate.no-ip.com' is configured as 'server'
- Site can't be accessed from the WAN as it gets the DMZ IP address from the USG
In EdgeOS, DDNS uses the 'dynupdate.no-ip.com' server to get the actual WAN IP adress. It does not send the DMZ IP from Eth0.
Please update the firmware of the USG and USG Pro to also use the 'server' address under DDNS to get the WAN IP adress.
Currently, If you click BLOCK on the client, it will block them from everything.
Change this to where if you click BLOCK on the client, it will give options to block from only certain networks and only from certain SSIDs.
I have clients I want to block from a particular SSID, and the current way of doing so is quite cumbersome with copy/paste mac addresss into the wireless network configuration.
In the "Clients" tab of Unifi I have quite a few IP Cameras and miscellaneous devices (Raspbx, HDHomerun, Managed PDUs) that I would like to be able to quickly navigate to. A simple fix would be to turn their IP address into a hyperlink, just like USGs in the "Devices" tab. I understand not all clients have an http gui, so possibly this hyperlink option could be selected in the client properties.
Many features within the UniFi controller point to needing a USG
Until one is added to the environmentment it would be nice to have all these areas hidden so focus can be on only features that are supported.
Control4 the largest home Automation company has put all Ubiquiti products on the blacklist of networking equipment because it doesn't support PIM and are instead pushing dealers to their much more expensive Pakedge products. If Ubiquiti can address this then we can go back to using your products.
I could not find from Unifi GUI any PORT specific temperature. Only generic temperature is available. Still port specific temperature is available in CLI. So the data exist. How can I show port specific information from the GUI?
And if it is possible too see (or add) a stat button for temp it should be possible to add a stat button also for PoE power. I would really like to see how much my PoE cams, PoE powered Rasberry, SIP phones, ... consume power in the long run. Not just now.
All the Port temperature and PoE Watts and Volts/Amps data exist but probably are not recorded in the database for statistical purposes. Now we just need to see be able to see them. But how?
This should be very easy and fast to implement. When Unifi save a line to the record in database of including TX, RX, ... data at the same line just add three extra columns; PoE Watts and Volts, and Temperature. Do not need much more data space. Then only add 2 extra buttons and queries for the buttons. Thats it. Everything else is there already.
Maybe like this:
In phase 2 later it would be interesting to add a new option to Settings -> "Statistics".
There you could select what data (tx, rx, poe, temp, fan speed, ...) admin wants to save to the database for statistical purposes by devices or device types. That is because if the thole setup is very large and every data is not interesting thus admin can save space at disk and make the processing of the database lighter and maybe faster.
Further, to be able to better control the temperatures of the switch there should be an option where the user can select the default fan speed. That is the speed the fan runs if the system does not need more cooling. Now speed is stopped until cooling is needed.
Maybe like this:
Unifi Video Controller has an update feature built-in. Pretty much any other software controller I have used does this (Plex comes to mind). Unifi (for networks) does not. It would be nice and save a few steps as well as serve a verified update package if the Unifi Controller could just ping the Ubiquiti servers and see there is an update. Then either automatically download and wait for manual (or scheduled) install or alert user that an update is available. Providing easy access to release notes would be a plus as well.
Another page from Plex, maybe offer the option to download and install from the Beta branch vs the regular software branch if a user wants to test Beta code.
Hi Unifi users!
I have maybe interesting ideas about improving Clients GUI:
- Grouping clients by:
- 802.1x identity (so by clients' RADIUS usernames)
- Dropdown menu for ClientGroups ( open/close dropdown)
- allow changing the order of columns
- maybe some dark UI here like in Settings
- allow to add Notes (we could write room numbers or names here) to RADIUS users in Settings/Services
- --> in Clients we could group clients by their Notes like Names or eg. Room Numbers in hotels, and see their devices in one place = as one "user"
I attach a Paint draw in comment. I had no idea where I should post these feature requests in Ubnt Forums.
Thank You for developing Unifi,
I have been playing around with the new IPS/IDS feature and this it's great! However I noticed a large number of Bittorrent alerts being raised right away. These were from a client that is known and permitted to be running BT so was not a concern. However there seems no way at the moment to exclude certain rules or clients from rules.
There really needs to be a way to tune the rules for a given site as the current "all or nothing" aproach means that even if IPS is working great, if there is one thing I want to allow, but the rules dont allow for it then I have no choice but to turn IPS off alltogether.
I have worked with IDS systems for many years (such as SNORT) and usually there is a way to tune the rules.
Version EdgeOSv1.10.0 is using OpenVPN 2.3.2. This is roughly 5 years old. Without something beyond 2.3.3 (they're on 2.5!) there is no support for TLS 1.1 or higher. This breaks my point to point with an updated OpenVPN server that is running the latest stable release. This is really disappointing.
In my enterprise, we limits the users bandwidth to solve saturation on APs, and avoid large downloads from internet. Those limits works fine, but when a user needs to work with shared documents, is affected too.
The idea is to can diferentiate the traffic to internet and the traffic to LAN, and have 2 bandwidth limits.
