Hi Zimbra Customers, Partners & Friends,
We’re happy to introduce the Organization Chart Zimlet that was recently added to Zimbra 9.
The Organization Chart Zimlet displays people in your organization in a hierarchical tree. If you are in a large organization or you have a lot of remote workers this is especially helpful.
The organization hierarchy is stored in Zimbra’s Global Address book and uses the manager field. This field can be set via the Admin UI or the command line.
This is how it looks in Zimbra …
To install the Zimlet
apt-get install zimbra-zimlet-org-chart
yum install zimbra-zimlet-org-chart su - zimbra zmprov mcf +zimbraGalLdapAttrMap manager=manager zmmailboxdctl restart
The hierarchy can be set-up via the Admin UI as you can see in this screenshot:
You can also use the command line like this:
zmprov ma firstname.lastname@example.org manager uid=user2,ou=people,dc=zimbra,dc=example,dc=com zmprov ma email@example.com manager uid=user2,ou=people,dc=zimbra,dc=example,dc=com zmgsautil forceSync -a firstname.lastname@example.org -n InternalGAL
NOTE: The topmost user account of the hierarchy should have the manager field set to its own account’s LDAP field.
Enjoy your org charts,
Your Zimbra Team
