The Zimbra Web Client has several URL params that will allow for different integration and easier debugging.

The following commands can be combined or used as separate flags.

i.e., ?debug=3&mode=mjsf&gzip=false

debug=

debug=3

This will popup a debug window in full debug. For less verbose output try debug=2 or debug=1

Syntax: http://<host>:<port>/?debug=<debug-level>

Example: https://server.example.com/?debug=3

Example: https://server.example.com/?debug=2

Example: https://server.example.com/?debug=1

mode=

mode=mjsf (Multiple JavaScript Files)

This will force the client to load each JavaScript file as a separate file. Much, much slower to load but perfect for debugging.

Syntax: http://<host>:<port>/?mode=mjsf

Example: https://server.example.com/?mode=mjsf

gzip=

gzip=false

This will disable gzip'ed JavaScript and CSS files. certain versions of IE and some old web proxies that don't support HTTP 1.1 can have problems.

Syntax: http://<host>:<port>/?gzip=<true|false>

Example: https://server.example.com/?gzip=false

app=

app=calendar

This will force the app to open with calendar as the default view. app=contacts will also work.

Syntax: http://<host>:<port>/?app=<module>

where <module> is one of the following:

  mail
  calendar
  contacts
  tasks
  documents
  briefcase

Example: https://server.example.com/?app=calendar

Example: https://server.example.com/?app=contacts

view=

view=compose&to=[email]

Pasing in these parameters will begin a new message addressed to [email].

Syntax: http://<host>:<port>/?view=<option>&to=<email>

Example: https://server.example.com/?view=compose&to=user@domain.com

dev=1

dev=1

You can append &dev=1 which forces the debug window to open with SOAP queries and time stamps, and Zimlet source files to load separately. But while this eliminates the modular loading, caching, and also the minimization, it does change the overall behavior.

Syntax: http://<host>:<port>/?dev=1

Example: https://server.example.com/?dev=1

Version Identification

Entering the following line into the ZWC Search field will reveal the version of the ZCS server:

$set: get version

nss=1

nss=1

You can bypass the splash screen after entering your login credentials.

Syntax: http://<host>:<port>/?nss=1

Example: https://server.example.com/?nss=1
