truncated because the number of entries exceeds the LDAP server's
search limit.  I went in to IPA Server->Configuration and changed the
Search size limit, but raising it over 2000 requires manually
modifying the LDAP server configuration.

Are there any plans to improve the web UI so that it does not require
such a large size limit when viewing a DNS zone?  Are there
other GUI tools that can be used to view/edit the DNS zone data (and
that don't also suffer from hitting these search size limits)?

I'm using ipa-server-4.4.0-14.el7.centos.6.x86_64 if it matters.

Web UI has the same size limits which are imposed by LDAP server for the authenticated user.

In 4.5 version the warning was changed to be less annoying.

There are currently no specific plans to change Web UI in this area. A think which was considered is to disable paging for post pages (e.g. user and host search) and rely more on size-limits and searching. The reasoning is that browser through a lot of records is not very usable and it is better to search.

So I would ask in different way. How would you envision the Web UI should behave for so many records? E.g. just in DNS area.
