While not as user friendly, interacting with OpenVPN's init script works
well in that regard. One only need to enable the update-resolv-conf
helper script:

 script-security 2
 up   /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
 down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf

That said, I don't know if the init script is still shipped in Vivid as
OpenVPN now supports systemd.

  network manager openvpn dns push data not updating system DNS

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:
Status in openvpn package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When IPv4 Method is set to Automatic VPN, DNS address recieved from
  OpenVPN server do not update resolv.conf.

  This can be achieved when using a standard openvpn config file by
  adding the lines:

  script-security 2
  up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
  down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf

  In Network-manager there seems to be no option to run connection
  specific scripts and the DNS data from the server is ignored.

  Ubuntu 13.04
