Allow Configuration of DHCP Options
UTM 9 had great DHCP options that you could assing globally or to an individual pool. For people with VoIP deployments this is Huge.
Adding DHCP options to the GUI is under consideration for a future release.
This is a requirement if we will consider XG Firewalls to have a usable DHCP server for production environments
Come on. This is not rocket science, and badly needed.

Please add DHCP Options to the GUI. AGAIN, look at the UTM 9.x, walk over to their cubicles and just ask one of their team "Please tell us what to put into the XG firewall design!" You will end up with an amazing product!
If i wanted to configure by CLI, i would just buy Cisco.
Please also consider allowing to use the API for the configuration of DHCP option objects.
Also need this to encompass being able to push DHCP options via the SSL VPN which does not have a typical DHCP server scope as with normal subnets on physical interfaces.
Why isn't it still included?
It should be included for sure.
How some of this stuff including just clicking a client to make a static reservation is beyond me. Come on guys.

Enable or disable DHCP-Server from UI
I know it is possible to add DHCP options in the CLI but we would like the DHCP options available in the management portal/web interface too.
Yes - having this in the GUI is crucial. I have techs that I don't dare give SSH/CLI access. :)

We need the possibility also to delete the already leased IP!

By the way - funny idea to display all DHCP leases of all segments in one single list. That way you will alway have to manually filter the list. Why are the leases not grouped by network as default?

AJ - You can actually assign them to a pool. While we without doubt need to be able to do this from the GUI here's how to do it from the CLI. Say I have a DHCP pool called Data_Pool
console> system dhcp dhcpoptions binding add dhcpname Data_Pool optionname <DHCP Option Name Here> value <You're value here>
You can then view the bindings by doing the following
console> system dhcp dhcpoptions bindings list dhcpname Data_Pool
I'm typing that from memory but if you type ? after each command it will show you the available options. Took me a while but once you get used to it you can fly through and add them. I have my VOiP phones auto-provisioning from their DHCP pool and our PXE server working perfectly.

From CLI you can add custom options of change current ones, but you can not do anything with them, there is no where to assign them to a pool.
From the XG CLI console you can configure DHCP options.
console>system dhcp dhcp-options list will give you a list of options to configure
this feature is needed, our pxe deployment wont work with this firewall before this is fixed.
IoT makers, people who want NTP servers advertised, tftp download locations. The list goes on and on.
If this isn't done, the next option for me would be IP helper's so we could forward to another dhcp server.
