Dark mode for UniFi Controller

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

I just updated and don't like at all how new unifi controllers looks. To much white and the rest of colors are too light. I think it would be nice to have a dark mode that allows more contrast between background and text and will also rest sight.

Request: Site-to-Site VPN Status on Dashboard

Submitted by - Thursday
Status: New Idea

With the latest release of Controller v5.9.29, the ability to see the status VPN connections seems to have been depreciated.


Being able to assess any site-to-site VPN connections from the dashboard would be greatly appreciated.

UNIFI Cloud Key, Controller, Mail Server to Support SMTP TLS port 587

Submitted by - Saturday
Status: New Idea

It has a few years now that Gmail has more or less deprecated SMTP SSL port 465.

It would be great to have TLS 1.2 in order to ‘not’ run my Gmail under a less secure protocol.


DPI Restriction on adult websites

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

THis is a *MUST HAVE* feature which Meraki (focused on school districts) has.

It is pratically impossible to beat them on a RFC when a superintendent ask if out of the box we can block adult contents.

Please add this feature, and extend the DPI Restriction categories

WLAN Schedule - more granular tweaking needed

Submitted by - Friday
Status: New Idea

Dear Unifi Team,
thanks for the great products!
I am a sysadmin at a Bavarian secondary school and also IT consultant for 90 more schools here. I am using Unifi Controller, but we at our school want to be able to cut internet access for students during the various breaks. There is already the possibility to schedule when the wifi is available (WLAN Schedule), but we would need a more granular (5 minute increments) way to set this up to our needs. As an example, we would need to be able to set the internet times to
7-9:30 am
9:45-11:15 am
11:35 am - 1:05 pm
2:05 pm - 5:10 pm

Maybe in a future update you could include this feature? Would be great!
Thanks a lot!
Best regards

Support DNS-over-TLS

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Cloudflare recently published their DNS resolver openly under


For fully preventing plaintext DNS queries over the public internet, one would require a DNS resolver to support DNS-over-TLS or DNS-over-HTTPS. As such, it would be great if USG could support DNS-over-TLS:

VLAN support on UCK / G2 / G2-PLUS

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea



Per the rather concise discussion at


We're requesting that you provide VLAN support on the UCK. It could be set up under the UCK management page, and settings imported to/from the Unifi controller.


VLAN for Unifi management to match the management VLAN settings in the unifi controller for switches and APs.

  • MUST tag all traffic into this VLAN from the controller.
  • SHOULD be capable of listening and responding on untagged discover requests. 
  • ideally, SHOULD be capable of passing back management VLAN tag as part of inform.
  • possibly Unifi devices SHOULD auto-provision L2 and L3 into mgmt VLAN if set.



VLAN for cameras 

  • MUST tag all video server traffic into this VLAN from the controller.
  • SHOULD be capable of being set to the same as the VLAN tag for Unifi for simple cases.
  • MUST NOT allow unauthorised devices to this VLAN (auto mac prefix filtering and whitelist at very minimum, PKI better)
  • Ideally a larger piece of work would be to create a network type "video" in the unifi controller.

Support CEF Log format for Unifi USG syslogs

Submitted by - Tuesday
Status: New Idea

There is a vast range of security systems we would want to use to report on logs that the USGs could provide.  One of those systems would be Microsoft Cloud App Security.  Any modern day security system supports ingesting CEF logs, thus it makes sense to also report USG logs in this format.  Could you please try and support the Common Event Format for syslog logs?  

Request: Ability to export stats in the form of PDF reports

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

I recently setup a temporary WiFi network for a week-long event in a sports arena.


I would like the ability to produce historical reports from the live stats to show the management team how the WiFi network performed over the last week. Things like number of clients connected per day, top clients, bandwidth usage over the day/week, performance of the APs, an indication of whether I had enough APs installed for the amount of clients that connected, etc...


Once I take this network down, all these live stats will be lost.


Request: Force All Outgoing DNS Traffic to Specific Server

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I have a USG-PRO-4 and just switched from pfSense. In pfSense I was able to catch all outgoing DNS requests (regardless of which server they were pointed at) and redirect them to some other internal or external DNS server. Part of my security and content filtering strategy requires this but there is currently no easy way to do it with the UniFi controller.


Can this be added as an option in the controller GUI? Something like a checkbox that says "Redirect DNS Requests" and a field to manually enter an address.


Currently files have to be modified by hand and the changes won't persist once a change is made to the USG from the controller. Below are a few links that outline the necessary changes, which can't be done from the controller.

Disable Secondary Ethernet port on UAP

Submitted by - 4 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

Please create a feature that allows users to disable the secondary ethernet ports on access points.  I have several AP-HD's deployed in a dormitory.  The student network shuts off on a schedule (per the organization's request).  One student has found that he can plug into the secondary port on the access point and create his own hotspot.  I need this resolved soon.


Surely there is a way to create a way to creat a "set interfaces ethernet eth1 disable" command button or something in Unifi. 





Request: Basic handling of virtual MAC-addresses

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea


I note that here and there questions are popping up about alien MAC-addresses in the networks. In my case I guessed that a person i a facebook group was seeing virtual MAC-addresses and now I note that I have ~10 in my controller logs. Sample:


All of them are I belive Windows 10 network probes. At least Microsoft has the decency to set the Local Address bit to true in them (xxxxxx10 in the first byte). (Android and ios also have built-in generation of virtual mac-addresses, though I do not know how they handle the Local Address bit)

Request: In the controller UI (and app), mark Local Addresses with a different color and/or add an option to block/hide them) in order to provide ease-of-mind for network administrator who do not initially understand what they are seeing.

Support Ubuntu 18.04 and others including MongoDB 3.6.x

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I emailed support about this, and they suggested I post this as a "feature request" on the community forum, which seems an odd way of going about it, but okay.

After upgrading my Ubuntu machine from 16.04 to 18.04 I was unpleasantly surprised to see that the Unifi management software is incompatible with the version of MongoDB included in Ubuntu 18.04.  Considering this release has been out for 3 months (with betas available prior to that), I would have expected this to have been resolved.

So, here's my feature request: Ubiquiti, please support MongoDB versions newer than 3.4, so that Ubuntu 18.04 (and any other distributions that upgrade MongoDB) users can use Unifi again.

Full DHCP Table

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hope I am not duplicating previous posts.


I think it would be good to have access to a full DHCP table so we could see all of the IP's the USG is assigning to hosts. I currently have a few devices that only communicate thru the LAN and don't actually send information to the internet. As such these clients aren't showing up in the client table. It would be good if we could see all.

It would be handy sometime to Disable a Port forwarding rule (for later use), instead of Deleting it.


Request: Block Adult Content

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea



I have a feature request. I know its possible with Cisco Umbrella, but I would like to have it integrated in Unifi products.


Is it possible to have a category within the DPI Restriction settings that will block Adult content. Someone from the helpdesk told me that it's possible to select Streaming to block Adult content, but since its 2018 and we also use Netflix and Spotify it's does not make sense to block that aswell. 


In some countries adult content is forbidden, but Netflix/Spotify are both not forbidden.


Thank you so much!


Display WAN IP and Stats on Controller Dashboard

For some reason I thought this already existed, but it doesn't appear so.


It would be nice if the controller displayed WAN IP address and other WAN stats on the dashboard.

Request: DPI restrictions on particular clients

Hi it will be nice if we can block content for specific device instead of blocking the whole network.


thank you
