Hi all, I'm new on zimbra, and I'm making my first steps on this huge world...
We're using (on beta tests), ZCS 8.7.7, with zimbra chat.

When I log on, i can't see in the chat the users of my domain, i must add them, and them accept my friendship.
It's possible to have, via administration panel or commands, that every user on the domain managed by zimbra, has his chat profile and everybody sees them? Even groups on zimbra, that exist in chat groups...

Is that possible?

I can't find any tutorial to configure zimbra chat as zimlet...

Thanks in advance for your answers....

Hello CoIR

By default OpenChat start with an empty buddy list to all users.
At this moment the only way is to use a distribution list.
You can use this setting (from the admin guide from github page):
zimbraChatAllowDlMemberAddAsFriend [boolean], optional.
Add every member of the distribution list as buddies to eachother.
Can be applied to:
• Distribution list

Se these are the steps:
  • Create a distribution list with all of your users (hide in gal etc)
  • Go to the server cli and type this command:

    Code: Select all

       zmprov modifyDistributionList {list@domain.tld} zimbraChatAllowDlMemberAddAsFriend true

Have a nice day,

This does not work.

zmprov modifyDistributionList xxx@yyy.zzz zimbraChatAllowDlMemberAddAsFriend TRUE

ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: unable to modify attrs: object class violation - unable to modify attributes: ldap host=yyy.zzz:389: attribute 'zimbraChatAllowDlMemberAddAsFriend' not allowed)
