Allow the Advanced Zone Editor to create/edit SRV records

acenetgeorge shared this idea 7 years ago
Completed

We have several reseller clients who have complained that they need to contact us to create or edit SRV records. Please adjust the advanced zone editor to show/create/edit all dns records so that clients can manage their own DNS records completely.


Right now, it only allows A, CNAME, and TXT records.

We just finished the first iteration on this feature, adding both AAAA and SRV record support to the advanced zone editor.


This change is Paper Lantern only.See attached image.

I agree, clients should have full control over their DNS management, IMHO

As of this moment it is doable by the Root Account as far as I've read. I would be very happy to have this feature added since a lot of other programs / websites already provide this.

This is needed. Office 365 service requires SRV records so clients should be able to add them.

I also need this to work for our clients setting up Outlook.com and Office 365 for SRV records

This option is a must and it should be managed also through feature manager, so that we can allow or disable usage.

Common guys! this is a must...

I have a site that needs an SRV record. Issue is that I am missing the

fields for "Protocol" and "Service" on the CPANEL interface. Here is the type of info I am being asked to enter into the dns records...



TYPE SERVICE PROTOCOL PORT WEIGHT PRIORITY TTL NAME TARGET


SRV _sip _tls 443 1 100 1Hr @ somewhereonline.com


Please add this feature!

This is a needed feature!

This is absolutely necessary for support of SIP.

Please add this functionality. It is a show stopper for many customers.

I've got to get Outlook.com setup, and I need this feature. Please add this :)

Would love to see this feature added quickly. Like many others I have a need to add SRV for clients (office 365).

What possible reason could there be to not implement this ? We could do this in almost every other panel for the last 5 years. It's not a BIND issue...


I just hit this issue for the 1st time, and am a little shocked. There are threads for 2008 asking for the same functionality...but nothing has ever been done.


We have hosted lync and exchange services and I can't use the customers existing cpanel account to host those DNS records ?


Can we pay to have this implemented ?

photo

Like others have mentioned - the use of lync and Office 365 has been on the rise among hosting clients and there is a growing need for SRV record capability in the Advanced DNS editor.


One of the things that makes this so important to have in cPanel is the fact the some clients / hosts use different types of domain registration services that, in some cases, force the customer (or host) to resort to making unusual nameserver settings on domain registrations in order to achieve SRV - many of which look unprofessional and don't match our own name servers for those of us who do have clients use our own DNS.


I'm really hoping and wishing that cPanel will consider SRV record capability to be implemented in cPanel soon so that we can begin to honor customer requests more seamlessly for those clients who need it.


If someone at cPanel is reading this right now, thank you for your consideration about this.

What do you think cPanel? When can we get it?

That's a time savior!

I'm building an Office 365 tool which automatically updates DNS records on cPanel hosting accounts for our clients. I can make it work with WHM accounts, but this limitation prevents it from working with cPanel accounts. It would be fantastic if this limitation was lifted and the zoneedit module updated to allow me to complete the tool.

I cannot setup Customers with office 365 LYNC until this is added unless I move them to a different DNS server. Come on CPanel Dev. I would be happy to help if I had a clue how.

Still looking for these Feature in cPanel...

I set up lync for office 365 for a customer today, would be nice if there were SRV records in the advanced editor.


The only missing option was the protocol in WHM's DNS editor, not sure if this is needed or not, but users should defenetly be allowed to create SRV records.

We need SRV Records for Office365

please get this feature added. why it isn't available is a big mystery

photo

Surely this makes sense to add, It shouldn't even be that difficult

photo

I've got clients demanding Office 365 SRV records. Please listen to your customers and get this implemented in the next sprint. I can't believe this feature request has been sitting on your backlog for this long. Unreal.

This NEEDS to include MX records as well so clients don't get confused by and accidentally change the "Email Routing" options

photo

By the way, if anyone wants a simply way to add the Office 365 DNS Records to cPanel & WHM hosting accounts I've built a handy tool which automates the process. Obviously SRV records won't work on cPanel accounts unless you have WHM access but that's not for much longer hopefully!

As if this is still not a feature, people have been asking for this for well over a year now.

I need to add SRV record as part of Microsoft Office 365 online which I am unable to do. I would be grateful if you would add this capability into the next version.

Hi Matt


I would like to add SRV records as well. Still not able to see the changes in our Advanced zone editor. How soon are we expecting this change? Or if its already implemented, do we need to request for the same?

photo

I just had my first customer request this. Instead of allowing their IT staff to do it, I have to spend precious support time adding the SRV record for them. I imagine the number of requests will grow as our company does.

I too have been reading back through the YEARS of threads on this topic, and the reading has left me STUNNED at their deafness to actual customer demand.


Because I need this faster than these guys are going to get around to it, it looks like I'm going to have to dump my CPanel-using host and stand everything up again on Amazon Web Services using their S3 control panel, which DOES allow us to create SVR records by the way.

You're right, there is no reason for this not to be implemented. Thus why it is a feature of 11.46. I apologize that it took so long.

looking forward to this

How do we go about doing this manually in the mean time or is that even possible? What are people doing to get this in prior to 11.46?

i`ve just purchased 7 email on Office 365 and i still can add the SRV record ??

any help how can i do it !!!

photo

It's really necessary now especially for those companies who are offering Office 365 as a primary cloud service.


I'm facing an issue now with one of clients as they are installing MS Lync on-promise and their service provider is contacting me to add the record from them!!


It's much easier to keep this type pf records in their hands.

Please add and release this feature ASAP or I will need to find a different hosting package that supports it.

I've been manually editing dns zones via WHM in the reseller / root account under dns functions > edit dns zone, which can edit all record types.


If you manually edited the bind files previously make sure you backup all your .db files as cpanel re-writes zones that don't have a proper header line.

11.46 should be available in the RELEASE tier later next week if QA makes the final signoff.

We just updated to 11.46, but cannot seem to find SRV records in Advanced Zone Editor?

Was this released in that build?

We also updated to 11.46 but can't find a way in the advanced zone editor to create/modify AAAA-records and SRV-records.

Excellent, what release is this in?

photo

I had missed that the "Official Answer" above stated that this is a Paper Lantern only enhancement, so if you're looking in the advanced DNS editor in some other theme and don't see SRV records, that would be why.

Moderator Note: please keep feedback constructive.

Noticed that AAAA and SRV are added but, thats it. Are the other DNS types going to be left to WHM?

Why was this release pushed out for Paper Lantern only? That isn't even the default theme; x3 is. When will you push out these changes for all themes?

photo

This should be included in x3 in 11.48.

We will begin development in the inclusion of the new records this week.

Hello cpanelnick


Any update with the final release 11.46 ? And It should be informed officially to all Hosting Providers so they can upgrade to the latest release.


Thanks.
