Changing soa serial format by using the XML RPC API
It is possible to set the soa serial format either over the Plesk Panel or the command line, f.e.
/usr/local/psa/bin/dns --update-soa <domain_name|domain_alias_name> -soa-serial-format timestamp|yyyymmddnn
However, the XML RPC API should provide a possibility to change the soa serial format, too. Currenlty, the XML RPC API only allows to manipulate the values for the SOA's ttl, refresh, retry, expire and minimum.
Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.
Also please add possibility to change the serial number through the XML RPC API, as well as https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/12.5/api-rpc/reference/managing-dns/managing-soa-records-and-zone-parameters/soa-parameters.34783/
For implementing DynDNS clients it would be very nice to update existing DNS records using the XML API.
Currently, there are only functions for adding, retrieving and deleting DNS records.
