Event Timeline

It is currently impossible to update zones on cloudflare dns via ddclient because the generated configs for cloudflare are mising a zone=<domain.tld> directive.
I also note that the comment for each entry also says "DynDNS provider configuration" regardless of the provider used.

Example bad config file:

# DynDNS provider configuration for 104-1831-gw.104-1831.tdude.co
protocol=cloudflare
max-interval=28d
login=starcraft66@gmail.com
password='<snipped>'
104-1831-gw.104-1831.tdude.co

Example good config file:

# Cloudflare provider configuration for 104-1831-gw.104-1831.tdude.co
protocol=cloudflare
max-interval=28d
login=starcraft66@gmail.com
password='<snipped>'
zone=tdude.co
104-1831-gw.104-1831.tdude.co

The zone could be specified by an extra parameter on the CLI but I can't think of a use-case where we can't just extract the root zone from the host-name.

According to T1030 it is working as expected

Ok, this is fixed already but I didn't notice because it is not yet merged in the Equuleus branch which I am running.

Let me merge it into equuleus branch

As this is merged into equuleus can we close this?

Of course we can add the zone option in future versions - but if it is to be auto generated that's even better and more user friendly.
