Hi Philip,

While it is not complicated, it is not that simple to generate the QR codes just based on the Mikrotik configs. QR codes are basically encoded config files for the clients. And the added complexity is that they have the private key in them as well, which I'm sure you have on file somewere, as you had to give Mikrotik the public counterpart of that keypair.

What I really miss of the QR code config file is a 'metadata' field that should function as a 'connection name suggestion' the user can accept (or edit as prefilled connetction name field) upon QR code reading. This would be really handly in case of a lot of connections to add to a phone.
