Profile synchronization allows user profile information sharing between between Zimbra Community and SharePoint. You can update your profile information in either system and see the changes reflected in both systems.
Zimbra Connect for SharePoint 4.1 now has two profile sync jobs: One to pick up incremental differences, and one to completely synchronize all profiles.
This solution has been develop and tested on the following platforms:
The following sections explain how to configure profile sync in Zimbra Community and SharePoint.
Note: The account used for plugin configuration does not affect individual user access to Zimbra Community or SharePoint, or give any extra permissions in either site.
We will now move to configuration of the the fields to import or export.
You have now completed configuration of the profile fields to sync.
Zimbra Connect for Microsoft SharePoint 4.1 can incrementally synchronize profiles in addition to or instead of full synchronization. (We recommend the full sync job be performed during a time of low access, such as end of business or on a weekend.)
These jobs can be configured as you normally would to run at specific intervals to manage the synchronization.
Note: Depending on SharePoint's configuration it may be necessary for the Job Scheduler to run under an account that has access to SharePoint.
