Problem

Create contact and contact group through CLI. Add local contact and GAL contact in contact group:

Solution

1) Create a local contact through the Zmsoap command.

Create the SOAP XML as per Zimbra SOAP API /tmp/createcontact.xml and add the following line into this file and save.

<CreateContactRequest xmlns="urn:zimbraMail">
<cn l="7">
<a n="firstName">Test</a>
<a n="lastName">Test</a>
<a n="homeStreet">Test street</a>
<a n="mobilePhone">8000062359</a>
<a n="fullName">Test, Test</a>
<a n="email">test@gmail.com</a>
</cn>
</CreateContactRequest>

Run the below command to create local contact:

$zmsoap -v -z -m user@domain.com -f /tmp/createcontact.xml 

2) Create a contact group through Zmsoap.

Create the SOAP XML as per Zimbra SOAP API /tmp/createcontact_group.xml and add the following line into this file and save.

<CreateContactRequest xmlns="urn:zimbraMail">
<cn l="7">
<a n="fileAs">8:testgroup</a>
<a n="nickname">testgroup</a>
<a n="type">group</a>
<a n="fullName">testgroup</a>
</cn>
</CreateContactRequest>

Run the below command to create a contact group:

$zmsoap -v -z -m user@domain.com -f /tmp/createcontact.xml

3) Add the local contact in contact group.

$zmsoap -v -z -m user@domain.com ModifyContactRequest/cn @id=group_id m/@op="+" @type="C" @value="contact_id"

Here "group_id" is contact group ID and "contact_id" is the local contact ID.

4) Add the GAL contact in contact group.

$zmsoap -v -z -m test2@domain.com ModifyContactRequest/cn @id=group_id m/@op="+" @type="G" @value="uid=Gopal,ou=people,dc=domain,dc=com"

Here "group_id" is a contact group ID and "uid=Gopal,ou=people,dc=domain,dc=com" GAL contact we want to add in the contact group.
