• Hi everybody,

    is it possible to have a second diffrent ldap-source just as adressbook when using z-push with the normal kopano / Active-Directory?
    like opnenldap with a global company adressbook synced from CRM and using openldap for diffrent clinets like fax, voip and so on…
    thnks,
    Sebastian


  • hello @segro,

    just to clearify:
    do you mean a totally different server or another namespace in ldap tree?

  • no, a totaly diffrent ldap-server
    we have z-push/kopano/samba4-AD setup and a openldap adressbook with a global adressbook, wich is used for the starface Voip as source adressbook. that one is filled from our CRM.

  • Kopano

    Hi Sebastian,

    that would rather be a question for the Kopano Core if and how it’s possible to configure multiple LDAP servers.

    What should work anyway if you’d write a python or php script to synchronise data from the openldap into a public or a shared contacts’ folder.

    Or maybe you could sync the openldap addressbook into AD and configure kopano to get the address list from AD. However I don’t have a clue if it works, so asking in Kopano Core section or Kopano support is a better option.

    This is also what core would suggest


  • Hi Manfred & Felix,
    thank you for your suggestions!
    we are using suitecrm (sugarcrm fork) and perhaps I’ll try to dump contacts from there and import it into a public contacts-folder with: https://stash.kopano.io/projects/KSC/repos/core-tools/browse/contacts2csv
    but the new python version does not work sooo well when importing to public (even if I use a clean export from a good user contactsfolder)
    maybe I will open a new post, if anybody else is intrested here…

    [root@mail contacts2csv]#python  contact2csv.py --user demod --export
    
    [root@mail contacts2csv]# python  contact2csv.py --public --folder PUB-CONTACTS --import demod_contacts1.csv
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "contact2csv.py", line 243, in <module>
        main()
      File "contact2csv.py", line 109, in main
        print('running script for \'{}\'').format(user)
    ValueError: zero length field name in format
    [root@mail contacts2csv]#
    

  • it’s a bit older but, is ther any chance to get this to work with suitecrm + kopano?

    Yes, I would suggest that. Looks like an error that should should be trivial to fix.

    Even back in the day this did not really work reliable and with all the changes that have been done to both Zarafa and then Kopano it would be a miracle if it still works.

    But since you have mentioned SuiteCRM. They were a sponsor of our last conference and there were some talks about an integration going on. Don’t know the status of that, but it might be worthwhile to ask them about it.

    Hi,

    can you provide some updated info about SuiteCRM+Kopano ? Is it meanwhile possible to integrate SuiteCRM into Kopano?

  • Kopano

    @micro it is not possible at this time to integrate SuiteCRM into Kopano - the integration efforts did not lead to the desired results.


  • Hi Bob. Thanks for that information. Is there any other CRM solution that is possible to intergrate with Kopano groupware? Same question goes for a DMS solution, maybe you know?


  • Hi micro,

    1. I found this one https://ecm2.nl/kopano-email-agenda/handleiding-kopano/#section_e1g_31d_lq and tey send me an updated version from zmerge + suitecrm-connector, but I didnt get that to work (auth problem…)
      Perhaps Kopano asks them to put it on their git / stash and other poeple get it to work…

    2. what we did is a meta-sync of the contacts to an openldap directory, so crm->openldap, here you can read it with many clients (outlook, thunderbird, starface, ) but not kopano ;-) … I have an other thread whre I aks for a soluten via z-push-gab2contact (that should not be tooo hard to modify, but I have no time…)

    meta-sync is done via https://lsc-project.org/doku.php which looks very old, but it has not been so many changes to mysql + openldap in the last years, so it still works fine…

    hope it helps…
    Regards Sebastian


  • If I get you right, you want to use something like a meta-ldap: a single ldap server which combines the results of multiple other ldap servers.

    Check out https://github.com/kgalal/meta-ldap (never tested, first google hit, maybe there are more meta-ldaps).

    Cheers
