Tactical Overview Format that always every site to live on one map

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

When deploying large communities they always want to see a finish products, currently I use the UnifiController for the internal, and AirControl for the external network. In the the UnifiController in the most resent community I just finished we have around 630 unifi's.  I will love to be able to show the location's and the coverge area of all of them. This would help sell this same concept to other prestigious gated communities. This is the First Community that has been designed and employed with all ubiquity products inside and out, every single home, condo, or  common areas, has a Unifi product in the AC flavor. They would like to live stream to home buyers how amazing the Internet is. :-) 

 

Any help would be great, And sorry for any typo's I'm on the run to a site!

 

Best,

jon Wood 

 

 

Explicit NTP controls

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea
It looks like all UniFi devices make NTP calls to the Internet whether you expect it or not. Worse, they appear to use an NTP dynamic pooling service.

From a security perspective I want to be able to build rules to block arbitrary access to the Internet by IoT / infrastructure devices like UniFi HW. Pretty hard when the pool.ntp.org pool is dynamic.

Can you provide an explicit NTP service override(s) in the Management Software? That way I can pick a bunch of trusted NTP sources and allow devices to acces them?

See if you can automatically deny access to mobile devices in a SSID

RADIUS FQDN

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

We would like to see the RADIUS server box allow the use of an FQDN. Last november IEEE and W3 decided to no longer offer publically signed certificates to RFC 1918 addresses. Using the IP address in the RADIUS server box impedes WPA2 Enterprise configurations because of the SSL failure. In an environment where you can't control the endpoints (like a college), and can't download cert chains, this causes a signficant TCO increase trying to utilize the benefits of RADIUS.

Scheduled APs

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hey there,

 

a very nice feature to integrate in one of the next controller-versions would be a function to enable or disable not only a complete SSID but single APs.
Could be e.g. the APs in the meeting rooms could be disabled at 8 p.m while the APs at the office stays enabled until 11 o´clock in the evening.
Is it possible to realise this?

 

Thanks.

UniFi usages

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

It would be very useful to have a breakdown (similar to the EdgeMax system) of what devices have used what data in a graph form, like the big graph in the statistics. This would be useful in our office, for instance: we had a random 5GB go through our network at 6am this morning and now have no way of telling what device has used it, so I'm not to sure if this is planned for the new 5.0 UniFi release, but this would be really useful. 2nd is a way of viewing traffic that has gone out to the internet i.e all WAN traffic and a separate way to view all the internal traffic, as we are planning on installing 15+ UniFi cameras plugged into the UniFi Switch we have and from experience I know that all the recordings going through the network will be added, so we have no way of telling what traffic is WAN and what is LAN. Thanks for your time.

Controller login control based on LDAP/RADIUS

Submitted by -
Status: Duplicate

Add the possibility of creating LDAP binding or request access via RADIUS for admins, and only-read users. Will make easier to design managers based on corporate/technical profiles for the web portal and even to SSHing the APs.

 

 

Ability to model changes before applying them

Inspired by discussion here.

 

Similar to other systems (such as JunOS) it would be awesome to model proposed changes before applying them.

Allow Unifi (and Unifi Cloud Key) to act as an NTP server for Unifi Devices

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

It would be awesome if the Unifi Cloud Key could act as an NTP server for Unifi devices. I can do this with other unifi deployments since it would depend on the hardware it's running on, but having it built into the Cloud Key would be really useful.

WLAN Schedule

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea
I'm aware that it's possible to schedule my WLAN in v4. My problem is that I need my WLAN to stop broadcasting between 1AM and 6AM on school nights (Sunday - Thursday). With the current method of scheduling the WLAN in the controller, this is not possible.

I would also like for the ability to schedule the Guest SSID as a calendar event (weeks in advance).

Random Free Channel Selection

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Have the AP randomly pick a free channel. Currently the APs seem to pick the first free or lowest used channel. For 5ghz all APs will just pick 36 if it is open. This isn't ideal if multiple APs are booting at the sametime.

Feature request: controller software update

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Currently the instrctions for updating the Unifi Controller software on Windows describe how to backup, uninstall, reinstall, and restore from backup. The real issue is that this is not an update, it is a disaster recovery process. Imagine if you had to do the same thing to update your iPhone, update Chrome, or update FireFox. It's not an acceptable approach. Just as you have an "upgrade" button to apply new firmware to my access points, please add an "upgrade" button to keep the firmware controller up to date.

 

The root of the issue here is security. The UniFi controller must have externally exposed ports on the internet so that the remote APs can connect to it. It is necessarly more vulnerable and so needs some type of auto-update mechanism in place just like Chrome or Acrobat. Considering how many networks a single controller might have access to, the absolute security of the controller is critical.

UniFi Controller Fine Tuneup Requests: Default Sort Settings (IP, VLAN, etc.)

Submitted by - a month ago
Status: New Idea

There should be an option to configure how to sort various settings in the controller.  For instance, when I open the networks tab, I would like networks sorted by VLAN instead of alphabetically.

 

It would also be nice when on the wireless networks page, that all WLAN groups are listed with their respective SSID's listed underneath the WLAN group.  It would allow easier configuration rather than needed to click the drop down menu.

Add possibility to clear (set to 0) the Down/Up statistics in "Insights" window

It would be useful to have the possibility to clear (set to 0) the Down/Up statistics in "Insights" window for "Known Wireless Clients". We want to track these statistics for every certain period.

L3 Management isn't working while a WDS Server is in the same network - BUG?!

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

To get the WDS (Windows Deployment Service) correctly working, the DHCP Option 43 has to be configured as "010400000000FF". Although there is L3-Mgmt over DNS correctly configured (&and working) in the same network, the accesspoints do not connect to the controller. The APs instead trying to reach the IP address 0.0.0.0 because of "010400000000FF".

So the priority should be changed as followed: 1.use DNS  2.use DHCP Option 43 to reach the controller. Or simply, the AP should change from the first to the second L3-Mgmt type if the Controller is not reachable with the first one. <- normal behavoir in IT, or not? Man Wink

Dual band UAP-IW plus gigabit

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

This is a great idea, especially for schools and hotels.  We do hotel wireless installs and this type of device per room would give hotels high scores for wifi, but most hotels require both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz to meet standards.  I can't even consider this product, nor will most installers installing in the hospitality field due to this limitation.  Is there a dual-band gigabit version in the works?
