Zimbra Contact Fields For CSV Import Mapping

Please see /opt/zimbra/conf/zimbra-contact-fields.xml

This will show you what "fields" Zimbra is looking for and mapping to in regards to importing from another applications contact csv files.

One easy way to do this is the following:

  • From zimbra ajax client as a test user (or any old user) do an export Addressbook.
    • This is under the preference tab > Address Book > Import / Export > Export - select Addressbook and click Export button
  • Then open file file something like Excel or a Text Editor
    • Your only interested in the Top line - that gives the default fields for a Zimbra Addressbook.
    • You'll get something like this:
    • "company","companyPhone","email2","fileAs","firstName","homepageURL","imAddress3","lastName","otherIMLabel","workCity","workCountry","workEmail2","workEmail3","workEmail4","workEmail5","workPostalCode","workState","workStreet"
  • With your other Mail system, export the addressbook to a csv file.
    • Open this file in another Excel window.
  • Copy the column data from the one Excel sheet and paste it into the appropriate column within the Zimbra Excel sheet.
  • Move as much as you can and then save.
    • For example:
    • "company","companyPhone","email2","fileAs","firstName","homepageURL","imAddress3","lastName","otherIMLabel","workCity","workCountry","workEmail2","workEmail3","workEmail4","workEmail5","workPostalCode","workState","workStreet"
    • "Apple Computer Inc.","1-800-MY-APPLE","","3","","http://www.apple.com","","","","Cupertino","United States","","","","","95014","CA","1 Infinite Loop"
  • Now you can try importing this csv file back into Zimbra.
  • Either with the webclient or you can use some on the CLI commands
    • See User_Migration for variations of CLI commands that could be used.
