#7946 Cannot find DNS in the UI
Opened a year ago by admiyo. Modified 10 months ago

Request for enhancement

As all users , I want to find DNS entries so that I can query or edit them.


DSN is a primary use case for IPA, but the DNS tab is hidden behind "Network Services" when then defaults to "Automount."

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open Up IPA UI
  2. Look for DNS. Don't see it.
  3. Click Around
  4. Give up in disgust.
  5. Go to IRC and Ask
  6. Get told by nice developer how to find DNS
  7. Shake Head.
  8. Click Network Services.
  9. Click DNS

Actual behavior

(what happens)

Expected behavior

Open Wewb UI
Click DNS


ALL to Date

DNS is a useful and important feature. But I'd not call it a primary use case as FreeIPA can be installed without DNS. As an optional feature, it doesn't deserve a place on top-level navigation thus it is on the second level.

AFAIK, it was never on top-level, as this screenshot from around version 3.3 suggests: https://pvoborni.fedorapeople.org/nested-search-label-bug.png

We had this discussion 5 years ago: https://www.redhat.com/archives/freeipa-devel/2014-June/msg00057.html The topic might be revisited. I'd prefer to look at it from a broader perspective though. E.g. FreeIPA Web UI uses an old version of PatternFly, it would be better to migrate a new version, e.g. 4 ( https://www.patternfly.org/v4/ ). Such migration might also mean a re-organization of navigation items.
