Zimbra auto-provisioining and dynamic distribution groups

This article explains how to configure auto-provisioining, if Zimbra is configured to use external LDAP (Active Directory), and then move the newly created users to dynamic DL group/s  
More information on how to configure Zimbra with AD can be found: [here], and for auto-provisioning [here]'


The article assume that you have auto-provisioning already setup, and we will focus on the dynamic DL configuration and how it integrates into the auto-provisioning. If auto-provisioning is not setup, check the link above for more information.

Creating dynamic DL

Step 1:

Open AdminUI and choose "Manage".


Step 2:

Click on "Distribution Lists".


Step 3:

Enter name for the group.


Step 4:

Select Dynamic Group, enter the Member URL, which in our case is: ldap:///??sub?(&(objectClass=zimbraAccount)(description=sales)), and choose Automatically accept for both subscriptions.


Step 5:

Specify an owner for the group.


Step 6:

Review the group Properties to make sure all is set up correctly.
