import/export tool for DNS Records
imagine you get a domain with thousands of dns records and you have to create each by your self in plesk!!!
I see this is 4 years old basic function that saves at least 86 customers lots of admin time. To the developer some domain have 100 records and this is bind dns so there is no reason for not having a means to import zones/

Seriously this post is 4 years old?
As more SaaS have started to use DNS records for verification/configuration, moving a single domain into plesk can take almost a hundred manual actions.
Is it too hard to implement some sort of batch functionality to import a DNS import functionality to the GUI and let users correct any records before they are inserted in the PSA DB?
This is just basic functionality.

This would be so useful so that we can say to users that they can import them themselfs. Please add this as soon as you can

Well, we often get zonefiles from our new customers who are transfering the domains and their webhosts to us. Mostly the customers have modified zonefiles with a lot of records. (one of the last ones hat over 200 various A Records) ... It takes much time until all the records are set manually.
creating a csv from zonefile takes a few minutes ...

I can't speak for the original poster, but I'd be using such a tool for cross-verification with other systems -- like my firewalls, my routers, and especially my backup/secondary dns server. I'd also use it when I spin up a new server -- also plesk-controlled, of course -- as a migration step. As always, CSV would be best. Yes I could certainly use CLI to do such things, but that's plesk-specific, and server-level migration issues, especially across plesk versions, are scary enough. They are always better with straight-up lists of values, without worrying that my ten-year old CLI commands are somehow out-of-date..
