    Default Zimbra External LDAP Authentication with Another LDAP Attribute (not uid)

    Hi,

    I have running Zimbra 7.0.1. I would like to authenticate user login to Zimbra webmail by using external LDAP attribute.

    LDAP attribute :

    uid : 790617 (my user ID)
    mail : m.rivai@domain.com

    Zimbra :
    mailbox : m.rivai@domain.com

    Is this possible to tell Zimbra that I would like to authenticate by using LDAP uid (790617) to access m.rivai@domain.com mailbox ?

    Thank you
    Best Regards

    Hi Ayoub,

    What I want to ask is how to use a LDAP uid attribute as Zimbra user authentication and tell Zimbra to use another LDAP attribute (ex : mail address) as Zimbra account.

    It is similar with AD+Exchange scenario, I'm login with my id number on Windows Logon but I have my firstname.lastname as my email account.
    Best Regards

    you need to set the following attribute:


    <attr id="256" name="zimbraAuthLdapExternalDn" type="string" max="256" cardinality="single" optionalIn="account" flags="domainAdminModifiable">
    <desc>explict mapping to an external LDAP dn for a given account</desc>
    </attr>
