  1. VirtualizationStation autoremove snapshots created by backup jobs

    While creating a automatic backup of an VM, the VirtualizationStation is also creating every time a new snaphot of the VM.
    While it is possible to define the retention of backups it is not possible to do the same for the snapshots.
    Right now you need to manually remove the snapshots if you don't want to run out of storage space.

    • Enable the Spotlight feature from Samba

      It would be great if you could activate the Spotlight feature, which is possible in Samba 4.
      QNAP would become a ideal File Server alternative for Apple environments.

      • User account privilege for HD Station (on TV)

        Being able to have each user account logging into HD station on TV to have their own apps visible or to be able to allow or deny user accounts to have access to HD Station at all. I have created user account for my kids, i can grant or deny access to folders and shares but they can all log into HD Station on TV and use all apps i have added to HD Station as well. It would be great if they use their account to log into HD station to have their own apps assigned to their account.

            • Use Bind as DNS for Samba4

              Qnap should use Bind as a DNS for Samba4, as the internal DNS has much limitations like for example no caching support which makes things slower and it is not really that stable, see https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_Internal_DNS_Back_End#Clients_Are_Unable_to_Resolve_DNS_Queries for details

                • Add SSL-Support (interception) for ProxyServer

                  There should be support to use ProxyServer for caching SSL-connections using interception (installing a QNAP-Cert on the client) this would help us much for improving internet-speed-experience in our country offices in for example Africa. see https://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/SslBump

                    • Support importing Exif tags in photo station

                      QNAP photo station will not modify file properties. If that's a policy of the company then at least allow Photo Station to read the Exif tags to the tag property in Photo Station (i.e. import the file Exif tags to QNAP) so it's possible to search by existing file Exif tags.

                      • file station background task icon should be always visible

                        Background tasks icon in file station is currently only visible when there is an active background task. This icon should be available even after background tasks complete, so the list can be reviewed for errors and completion before scheduling additional tasks.

                        • Send email on backup success

                          Much like deltacopy, The NAS is able to send an email if an Rsync backup task fails. It does not, however, send a success report with a list of what was backed up. This would be useful for business use cases where proof of offsite backups is requested by insurance agencies.

                          • One Touch 2-Step Authentication of QNAP Internet accessible services

                            I see 2-step/2-factor has already been proposed for many individual services and has been accomplished for general admin via Google Authenticator. It should also be available to all QNAP apps/services that are intended to be accessible from the Internet; especially VPN.
                            Typing in a pin is great.. but One Touch via Google Authenticator or Azure Authenticator is the way to go.

                            • Include an app to permanently mount external network shares

                              Right now I mount external shares manually via ssh. E.g.: mount.cifs -r
                              After rebooting I have to repeat that as I don't want to edit fstab.

                              A gui would be helpful:
                              - browse network
                              - choose local path
                              - set options for e.g. Read-only mode, ...

                                • openvpn with client certificates instead of simple login/pass

                                  Openvpn is provided by default on QNAP devices. However, current implementation does not allow to change the RSA key size (1024 bits by default), nor to use client certificate authentication ... which would be preferrable in my case as i don't want to rely solely on login/password.
                                  Thanks in advance !

                                  • RTRR replica security

                                    RTRR is a good solution fot offsite backup.
                                    A single QNAP could be the backup destination from multiple companies,

                                    Please add a security feature that allow at least different password for each company in order to allow the remote QNAP browse only the provided folder.

                                    At the moment, a remote QNAP could see or browse the entire content of the RTRR destination backup

                                    • Reverse Proxy

                                      Need a Reverse Proxy like other vendors.

                                      One of the reasons:

                                      It would make easy to manage\connect all connections from APPs Store Dockers etc..

                                      Instead of port number you could then use subdomains.
