Hook Points

Custom hooks can be used to integrate automation of SoluteDNS with other applications. To use hook points create a file called Hooks.php in the lib/Custom folder of the SoluteDNS directory.

DNSsec Key Update:

Function: DnssecUpdate($vars)
Triggers: DNSsec Reset, DNSsec Unsecure

Parameters:

domainstring
Zone name
keysarray
DNSsec key list
dsarray
DS records list
After Zone Creation:

Function: AfterZoneCreation($vars)
Triggers: Zone Creation

Parameters:

domainstring
Zone name
typestring
Zone type (d/p/s/r)
dnssecarray
Array of DNSsec details when configured. [optional]

keysarray
DNSsec key list
dsarray
DS records list
namespace WHMCS\Module\Addon\SoluteDNS\Custom;

if (!defined("WHMCS")) {
  die("This file cannot be accessed directly");
}

class Hooks {

  public function AfterZoneCreation($vars) {	
    // Do anything you want	
  }

  public function DnssecUpdate($vars) {
    // Do anything you want
  }

}

}

array {
  'error' => array {
    'code' => 3001
    'desc' => 'Zone could not be found.'
  }
}

Language Overrides

When you make customizations to included language files they’re overwritten when you update SoluteDNS. To stop this you can use override files.

In the folder: lang/override/ you need to create a file equal named to the main language file.

You can add custom language in this file. To override existing language values you can simply copy the language variable to the override file.

lang/english.php

$_ADDONLANG['client_title_permission'] = "Access denied!";

lang/override/English.php

$_ADDONLANG['client_title_permission'] = "Oops, you are not allowed to access the given zone.";

Reverse Record Management

If you wish to grant clients access to reverse records without providing access to the reverse zone you can assign reverse records to clients.

IP Assignment

You can assign/unassigned IP’s to clients by editing the following database table: mod_solutedns_reverse When adding a new assignment you are required to add data to the following columns:


Column: Type: Description:
client_id Int ID of the client.
server_id Int ID of the server where the reverse zone is located.
record_id Int The record id which belongs to the IP. You can add multiple records by separating them whit a comma (,).
ip String The IP for which this hostname is reverse. You can add anything you like. This is only for simple recognition by your client.

When the row is added correctly and reverse record management for clients is enabled the client can now set a reverse hostname for its assigned IP addresses.

The Automatic Reverse IP Assignment addon module provides basic automation/management of reverse assignments. Learn More
