How to configure auto-provisioning (autoprov) with dynamic DL
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
Open AdminUI and choose "Manage".
Click on "Distribution Lists".
Enter name for the group.
Select "Dynamic Group", enter the Member URL, which in our case is: ldap:///??sub?(&(objectClass=zimbraAccount)(description=sales)), and select the "Automatically accept" for both subscriptions.
Specify an owner for the group.
Review the group Properties to make sure all is set up correctly.
