    Default [SOLVED] Force shared folders

    HI there,

    I'm exploring the sharing functionalities of zimbra and i love them a lot.
    Actually, i want resources (mail, folders, calenders...) to be shared between users without asking them to accept the shared ressources.

    How can i fix it pls.
    Many thanks.

    You can do this from the commandline by going to the account you wish to share, setting the permissions to whom you want to share, and then on the other account create a mount to that folder.

    Code:
    zmmailbox -z -m accounttoshare@domain.com mfg /FolderToShare account otheraccount@domain.com rwidx
    If you want to share the "accounttoshare" with the same permissions to everyone, you can grant permissions to ALL instead of to account.
    Then, to create the folder on the other side:
    Code:
    zmmailbox -z -m otheraccount@domain.com cm /Accounttoshare accounttoshare@domain.com /FolderToShare

    No biggie, just missing modifyFolderGrant (mfg) on the first line:
    zmmailbox -z -m accounttoshare@domain.com mfg /FolderToShare account otheraccount@domain.com rwidx

    Thanks to both Alex and Mmorse!
    the mfg command works fine and when i define a mount point for the new shared folder for my user, this user can access the shared folder. In my case the shared folder is a private calendar. So appointments are displayed but without their content (title, place...)

    Would also love to understand the rwidx.
    Any relevant link or part of zimbra documentation to understand deeply cli around folders ?

    Regards,

    OK, since my calendar is a private one, off course there is no need for people to view the content.. just my busy time slots! Zimbra is cool!

    Thanks.
