The WebParts for Microsoft SharePoint provides integration between Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and Zimbra Community. These instructions apply to Telligent WebParts for SharePoint release v 220.127.116.11010 or higher (i.e., “Version” located on the SharePointWebParts-18.104.22.168010.wsp file).
This package has been developed and tested on the following products:
WebParts for SharePoint support both Windows and Forms Authentication. Regardless of the authentication mode, you must ensure both the username and email address match on both sides of an integration partnership. Zimbra Community sets user names and email addresses differently based on the authentication mode:
Usernames and email addresses in SharePoint are controlled by SharePoint's user profile import service. Configuring SharePoint's user profile imports is beyond the scope of this document.
Our WebParts for SharePoint require a service account to communicate between Zimbra Community and SharePoint. Create a new, separate account specific for this purpose. Do not use the account you installed SharePoint with or the account under which your SharePoint services run.
To install the WebParts for SharePoint, follow these steps:
An important note on SharePoint accounts: File synchronization requires user accounts to have the same username and email address in Zimbra Community and SharePoint. Managing user accounts in SharePoint is beyond the scope of this document. Please ensure you've properly planned for creating and maintaining your user accounts and their settings before moving forward with installing and configuring the WebParts.
You must create a REST API key for the service account (SPIntegration, in the example above).
For the following procedures, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products. Right-click SharePoint 2010 Management Shell and Run as administrator.
Note: Start the SharePoint 2010 Administration service and enter the following commands in the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell:
The WebParts for SharePoint have four features which must be activated for each site collection. You need to choose from two methods of activating the features:
You must configure your SharePoint site to communicate with your Zimbra Community site.
Social streams opt-in preferences: Select which SharePoint lists should post activity events to your Zimbra Community site's activity stream. Note that items not selected will not post updates.
It may be possible that the index IDs in forums, blogs and wikis are returned incorrectly. In order to resolve this issue, reindex your Zimbra Community site. For more details, see Search index problems.
The Zimbra Community features on SharePoint need to be recycled. In the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell, change directories to the Telligent SharePoint WebParts > Scripts folder and type: .\RecycleFreatures.ps1 [SHAREPOINT SITE]
