Zimbra Chat Extension

Postby 13546dalmate » Wed Aug 06, 2014 10:26 pm

I'm currently developing an Zimbra Chat Extension which works with openfire (maybe whater xmpp server you think it's better) server :).

Maybe in a month we'll have a alpha version.

So, in this post, I want to know which features do you want me develop.

In this version, I'll publish:

- A demo interface for web (I only support zimbra 8.x or higher because I don't have time for zimbra 7.x)

- Login function (In future I want if user logged in to zimbra, they do not need log in again to chat service but now I want to focus some important functions)

- List friends online/offline.

- Chat one-one

I'd note that chat will be added back into ZCS as a supported option with ZCS9. So your extension may have a short life ;)

Excellent news!
It was a bizarre decision to remove it in the first place.

Nice features,



when zimbra using multidomain and integrate it with openfire, the main problem is authentication through zimbra as external auth (ldap) due in openfire side only allowing one domain only, so far i created faked authentication using ldapjs but it too painful for me.



can in your extension solved this problem ?

I've created a preauth like zimbra in Openfire side so when users logged in Zimbra successfully, they can logged in openfire, too.

In the fact, I've modified some code in Openfire and rebuild it to make it can single sign-on with Zimbra.
