How to migrate filter rules from one user to another user?


These are the steps to export and import filter rules.

1) Export exiting filter rules of a user and save into a file.

zmprov -l ga UserA@DOMAIN.COM zimbraMailSieveScript > /tmp/filter_rules.txt  

2) Prepare the output file "/tmp/filter_rules.txt".

sed -i -e "1d" /tmp/filter_rules.txt 
sed -i -e 's/zimbraMailSieveScript: //g' /tmp/filter_rules.txt

3) Check required folders' path for the filter rules.

cat /tmp/filter_rules.txt | grep 'fileinto ' 


zimbra@mail:~$ cat /tmp/filter_rules.txt | grep 'fileinto '
    fileinto "TestEmail/TEST2";
    fileinto "User5";
    fileinto "Admin";

4) Import prepared filter rules on another user.

zmprov ma UserB@DOMAIN.COM zimbraMailSieveScript "`cat /tmp/filter_rules.txt`"  

5) Create all required folders for the imported filter rules from the step 3.

zmmailbox -z -m UserB@DOMAIN.COM cf -V message /"FolderName"


zmmailbox -z -m UserB@DOMAIN.COM cf -V message /"User5"
