Zimbra auto provisioning with aliases

Postby Fabio S. Schmidt » Mon Dec 14, 2015 5:14 am

Hi,


I'm trying to deploy auto provisioning from Openldap and I would like that the aliases would also be created automatically. 



I mean, in the source Ldap there is the "mailAlternateAddress" and I would like to use it to set zimbraMailAlias but this attribute is immutable in Zimbra. Is there any way to accomplish this?

I haven't been able to do this from autoprovisioning.

mailAlternatAddress or zimbraMailAlternatAddress, MailAlias or zimbraMailAlias are all non-zimbra attributes and the autoprovisioning fails.



I have once solved this with a 1 min cronjob, that retrieves the alias and provides it via 'zmprov aaa'.



Are there any better solutions?
