Zimbra SkillZ: The Organization Chart Zimlet is Here!

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 …

Installing the Zimlet

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

Creating Hierarchy

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 user2@zimbra.example.com manager uid=user2,ou=people,dc=zimbra,dc=example,dc=com
zmprov ma user1@zimbra.example.com manager uid=user2,ou=people,dc=zimbra,dc=example,dc=com
zmgsautil forceSync -a galsync@zimbra.example.com -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
