Custom TXT records are not visible in dns queries
« on: June 10, 2022, 08:01:38 pm »
Describe the bug
When a TXT record is created in the DNS and it is personalized, that is, it does not point to zentyal itself or to some of the already declared A records, but rather it is a record that points to another destination, for example, the TXT records that are must be created to verify the domain by Let's Encrypt, these records are not visible when doing a DNS query. Only the TXT records that are created pointing to the zentyal itself are visible to a DNS query, the rest of the records are not seen.

The practical example is the domain validation process that Let's Encrypt performs when a valid security certificate is going to be generated, the process asks to create a TXT record in your DNS and they verify the domain, well, this process cannot be achieved with success because zentyal never shows TXT records like that.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    Go to DNS service'...'
    Click on TXT record and create new record.
    Select "custom" as source and declare the value of the TXT record.
    Save changes
    Do a DNS query of all TXT records. When doing it, you will notice that the created record is not shown.

Expected behaviour
A clear and concise description of what you expected to happen.

The correct thing is that when doing the DNS query, all the DNS records that have been created are shown, or at least the services that need them can access them, such as the domain verification process carried out by Let's Encrypt.

Zentyal OS (please complete the following information):

    Version: I have verified the same problem in version 5.1 ; 6.2; 7.0 developed and commercial.
    Version of the module which has the bug [e.g. zentyal-dns-5.1]
    Modules installed [DNS, DC, Jabber, Mail, Antivirus, IDS.]

Additional context
The DNS service has other difficulties that will be detailed in another report.
