Support Enabling LetsEncrypt by a checkbox on all Unifi Devices

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

Pretty much title says it all.   LetsEncrypt allows for trusted chain SSL certification that is automated and expires every 90 days.

For people not needing full paid for keys this would allow trusted keys and would stop the more agressive browsers that are starting to make it harder to visit self-signed pages.

I am using controller 5.5.19 on ubuntu.  I am able to successfully able to communicate with services in my network from outside through port forwarding but can't seem to get the new Radius Server/L2TP VPN working.  Any help would be appreciated.  Support wasn't able to help me out.

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

Submitted by -
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 to


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.

Ive done some searching but not sure if ive missed anything


In the scheduled backup section of unifi, it would be good to select an external location, some suggestions


- UNC Path

- FTP Location

- Cloud Service (Dropbox, OneDrive)



Decouple Cloud Key Firmware from Controller version.

Submitted by -
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.

Site names organizing important!

Organizing and changing like this  the site names and in subcategories will give a big advantage  even with thousands of devices and installations will be mush more fast and ofcourse  no errors or meshing up diferent site confiqurations or no finding the correct site name ....       example in  the photo below

Can you add a feature in the GUI, to allow SSL certificate install in lieu of CLI, for those of us not comfortable with the command line portion...?

Very important option in vouchers page manager. Important!!

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

An option in the unifi voucher manager page to delete multiple vouchers without pressing each time one by one to delete, for example an option to delete all used,   and an option to delete all the vouchers the new ones and the used ones all together,and the expired too ofcourse,  without deleting one by one,  its a top requested feature by many business , hope very soon to see this.    example in the picture above.....

4 port wall plate with built in switch

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

I am not sure if this thought is in production or even been thought of.  I was thinking of the convience if there was a 4 port wall plate with a built in switch.  This would enable you to run one network cable to the wall plate instead of 4 separate cable as an example.  I am not sure if sharing a single 5e gigport cable is enough or if it would require cat 6 cable or better.  Hopefully I have explained this enough that you can understand what it is I am trying to say.  

UAP AC In-wall listed under GW/Switches too

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea
This is a switch and an AP. I think it should be listed under both categories. The options to configure the switch ports are in the device config, which is fine, I just think it would help for consistency to have the switch portion of this device listed and configurable as any other unifi switch.

[Option] Heatmap based on signal level.

Submitted by -
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..

Add USB port to USG and enable USB port for carrier WLAN devices or Encrypted Storage devices

Submitted by - Monday
Status: New Idea

Seems that there are some suggestions for this in some of the forums, especially BETA about enabling this type of operation. I would help contribute code for the storage option.


I know a hardware change to the USG-3P is probably not likely, but at least enabling the USB port for use on the USG-4P might be possible?

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!

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.

Show switch port (if Unifi switch, of course) Unifi devices are plugged into (uplink)

Submitted by - a month ago
Status: New Idea

I had a Unifi AP that was only conecting at 100Mbs so to start troubleshooting I wanted to figure out what switch port it's on.  


I started by going to the AP properties then thought duh when I didn't see any switch port info and went elsewhere to look in the switch ports to find the info.


Then I thought why "duh" - the information is in the controller, why can't it also be in the AP properties too?!?


The ask: it would be nice if plugged into a Unifi switch to show the Switch (Alias), Port Number and Port Alias as well in the Properties/Details/Overview section for Unifi devices.


For APs, show the switch/port info the AP is plugged into. 


For switches , show the switch and uplink port to the parent switch above it (if there is a parent).  


For the USG, show the switch and port the USG LAN port is plugged into - the one exception to the uplink rule.  

UniFi mac addresses across sites (custom device names)

Submitted by -
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.


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.)

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. 




Official Lets Encrypt Support for HTTPS

Status: Accepted

Rather than self-signed certs, web-exposed controllers should have the ability to grab and automatically maintain a Let's Encrypt cert as a one-click solution.
