Zimbra Connect for SharePoint supports both Windows and Forms Authentication. Regardless of the authentication mode, you must ensure both the user name and email address match on both sides of the integration. Zimbra Community sets user names and email addresses differently based on the authentication mode:
- In Windows Authentication, the username and email fields are populated by the Active Directory.
- In Forms Authentication, the user enters those values directly when they join a community.
- In SAML Authentication, the user signs into SharePoint with Community credentials.
- In OAuth, users will sign in with SharePoint 2013 or Office 365 credentials.
Please note SharePoint Forms Base Authentication is not supported.
The Profile Sync feature uses a table in the database to store information. Please run the SharePointSync.sql file located in the SqlScripts folder of the Zimbra Connect for SharePoint kit.
Copy the contents of the Web folder located in the Zimbra Connect for SharePoint kit to the Zimbra Community site's Web directory.
The Job Scheduler also requires a copy of the DLL files below. These are located in the bin folder of the SharePoint install package.
If upgrading from a 3.x connector:
- Run Uninstall-SPIntegration.ps1 from the InstallScripts folder of the installation kit.
- Remove old DLLs:
- Copy the contents from the Web folder of the installation kit to the Web folder that is hosting the Telligent site.
- Make sure the App Pool recycles.
