Option to disable a domainBrowser Info Environment
Could you tell a bit more about the use case behind this feature request? That would help us to evaluate better whether this would be a good addition or not.
As this is the first time ever (for the 5.6 and 5.7 versions together) anyone has requested this feature, it would be really helpful for us to know a little more about the background on why this could be useful.
What kind of sites are you running if they are active only a certain period of time?
For the data mapped to the domain, what do you mean in particular? I think all the site data should be preserved if you remove the domain. Only the mapping disappears, which shouldn't contain very relevant data (only stuff like site name and the domain).
For the "using mapped domain data to tie my own data" part, this one I don't perfectly still understand. Could you particularly explain how this all works out, so it would better help us to see the whole problem scope and evaluate whether this particular request would be beneficial to add to the add-on.
I'm not trying to be difficult here or anything, we just want to make sure that if we do some extra features or changes to current functionality, they are serving actual use-cases. E.g. if we add the "enabled" feature, it is maybe serving you with this particular purpose, but for 99% of the other users, it just adds extra confusion/noise through an extra option in the settings.
For any kind of feature request, we would like to know the exact requirements behind these requests and where they are based on. This helps us to better understand the problems behind these requests.
Currently, as I'm not maybe understanding the problem perfectly, I don't see it as an issue to just delete the domains when they are no longer required. I also understood from above that as these campaigns end, these domains are no longer needed. So, I'm not seeing any benefit in keeping the domain related settings alive in the database either.
I guess for most of the people this wouldn't make sense since if they want to disable the domain, they just delete it. We'll check if there is something we can do regarding this. Maybe we'll add it as a "hidden" feature that you can enable through configuration.
We'll keep this thread updated on what's going on.
