Zimbra NG Modules - Client Zimlet

Zimbra NG Modules - Client Zimlet

The Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet

Along with the huge changes and improvements for all existing modules featured in Zimbra NG Modules 2.0, a new component called "Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet" has been added to Zimbra NG Modules.

This new entry allows end users to access new Zimbra NG Modules features, along with some old ones which were previously available only in the Zimbra NG Modules Administration Console.

The Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet is 100% free, it requires the Zimbra NG Modules Core to be functional and its deployment is not mandatory.

Features

The Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet is more than a simple Zimlet: it's an evolving tool that will be expanded and extended over time to provide the best Zimbra experience possible to end users.

Current Features

Planned Features

Deploying the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet

Deploying the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet is easy, and can be done via the Zimbra NG Modules Administration Zimlet.

In order to deploy the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet:

  • Log into the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Enter the "Core" section of the Zimbra NG Modules Administration Zimlet
  • Click on the "Deploy" button under "Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet"

Once deployed, the zimlet will appear in the deployed zimlets list as "com_zextras_client".

Zimbra NG Modules CLI

The Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet can be also deployed using a dedicated Zimbra NG Modules CLI command:

 zxsuite core doDeployClientZimlet

The Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet in multiserver environments

Deploying the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet on multiserver infrastructures requires the same steps as it does on singleserver environments. The Zimlet is deployed in LDAP, so you'll need to only deploy it once regardless of the number of mailbox servers on your infrastructure.

Enabling the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet

As for any client zimlet, after the deployment the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet will be only enabled for users belonging to the default COS.

You can enable the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet for your users in the following ways:

  • Per user - through the "Zimlets" section of each user's settings within the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Per COS - through the "Zimlets" section of each Class of Service's settings within the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Via the Zimbra CLI through the `zmzimletctl` command.

Updating the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet

The Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet will be automatically updated by the Zimbra NG Modules Installer when updating Zimbra NG Modules. Should this update fail, pressing the "Deploy" button mentioned above will deploy the latest version available.

Removing the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet

You can enable the Zimbra NG Modules Client Zimlet for your users in the following ways:

  • By clicking the "Undeploy" button next to the related entry in the "Configure -> Zimlets" section of the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Via the Zimbra CLI through the `zmzimletctl` command.
