Hi to all.

First of all let me apologize for the dual posting here and in administrators forum, but I don't know which is the right place to post this.


I want to know if is possible to share briefcases in a hierarchy with different permissions, I have tried from the webclient with a mix of successful and failure. But want to know if there is any option to make this work including if this setup can only be done from cli as administrator.

here is my requirement:

I have several users lets call them:

GM => General Manager
PD => Production
AD => Administration
SL => Sales
IT => System Administrator

I want to login as IT and create a shared Briefcase hierarchy like this (permissions in brackets)

Documents (ALL Read)
- Production (GM Read, PD Full control)
- Technical Information (All Read, PD full control)
- Financial (GM Read, AD Full control)
- Sales (AD and GM Read, SL Full control)


I have tried this

Test 1:

Created the Documents Briefcase with all read and sent the message
then created all the sub briefcases and specify permissions without sending the message

then the users will see the proper folders and documents, also can create documents but no upload new ones (it says no permissions)

Test 2:

Created the Documents Briefcase with all read and sent the message
then created all the sub briefcases and specify permissions sending the message

then the users have the desired functionality but as all messages for all subfolders where sent, they also have a separate link for each subfolder which confuses the user.

Is there any way to don't send the messages for the subfolders and make zimbra to know the proper permissions?

Thanks
