CardDAV sync with folders other than Contacts

Postby hik » Tue Oct 26, 2010 10:12 am

I created CardDAV accounts for the of Mac OS X. According to Bug 46458 – CardDAV do not work on the non-default domains in Zimbra there is a bug when providing the domain part of the user name. As we have only one domain, I set the default domain by "zmprov mcf zimbraDefaultDomainName ".
By doing this, CardDAV sync works at least for my private contacts. However, I created another addressbook "company" which I share with other users.
How is it possible to include this one?
I tried to alter the setting for the default path (in Configuration.plist) to

https://zimbrahost:443/principals/users/user@domain/company but this did not work.
Is this path correct? Or should I use another one?

Bumping this old request, any insights ?

I am also trying to sync with CardDav a shared contacts folder and I was hoping to find its web address ... but no joy :-(

I was looking at and there it talks only about the personal folder (https://zimbra_server/dav/USER@DOMAIN.TLD/Contacts) which means no groupware contacts if using CardDav ... Zimbra remains a semi-open-source product for me.

Appreciate any suggestion you may have

There are 2 different ways clients configure CardDAV collections.

I think the first mechanism is more sensible (assuming the client is smart enough to handle more than one collection...) but unfortunately, you just have to know how the client works in order to select the right style.

Hope this helps,

Both ways are not working.
In 8.7.11 both ways are working
After Update to 8.8.5 none of these ways are working.

Return to “CalDAV / CardDAV / iSync”
