Description macias - 2020-01-11 17:45:13 UTC
Currently one see interface name and zone "default". What does this mean? Is it public? External?

Please either use the actual zone (public, external, etc) or add that info so default will be meaningfull, e.g.
default (public)

  Minor note, since now are a plethora of zones to choose from it would be great to see some hint/summary what each zone does (after selecting given zone, below combobox, currently the combobox is pretty alone in selector window).

We could definitely add more information in current dialogs. We were thinking on adding that information in the left column, right to the zone name, but then, if changed the default in the "Zones" table a refresh of the column would be needed and that was the main reason for discarding it.

We prefer to not use the actual because it is not set explicitly and could also confuse the user. But appending the current default name would be a nice option.

BTW, clicking in Zones shows a summary of the current assignments and also shows which is the default zone.

That could be also a good information for the user.

Thnx for your feedback, I will mark this bug as a feature and we will try to show more information to the user.
