    Default create a new data in the Contacts from a portal

    Can I create a new data in the Contacts from a portal?

    What I want to do is that when I create a new data in an address book in a portal, I create same data in the Contacts in Zimbra at the same time.

    I wonder where a data in the Contacts is stored.
    If I know that, can I execute a SQL to insert a record in a database in Zimbra?

    The contact information for Zimbra is stored in LDAP, not in the database. The easiest way to record that contact information is probably to write a zimlet that pulls contacts from the portal and saves them in Zimbra. The advantage of this method is that it gives you the JS Contact class. You could also use Zimbra's SOAP interface to push contacts into Zimbra as well directly from the portal.

    I thought the contacts were stored in SQL to facilitate searching, tagging etc? As opposed to GAL which is in ldap.

    I'd love a way to view and update contacts from thunderbird, that's going to be my next project after solaris port, but I suspect it's going to involve writing a thunderbird soap/rest plugin.

    Ehh. You are probably right. Let me double check it ;-)
