Install zimbra-connect, it does have a chat feature.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for checking in on this (I was just sorting out details on this).

One question (on the Ubuntu section):

- The last step is: apt-get remove zimbra-connect

should it be:

- apt-get install zimbra-connect

Thanks,
David

Hi king0770

I followed the instruction and Connect is enabled.
However, the functions are limited.
I cannot see or enable video/groups
I can only search buddies by email and not by name

and the attached image appears with the message that seems to say that we do not have a "valid" license.

I had to zmcontrol restart to get rid of the error message.
After resolving the error message I proceded to apply latest patch. Just in case that was preventing me to do group chat.

Old version: 8.8.15_GA_3888 20191009115742 20191009-1220 NETWORK
New version: 8.8.15_GA_3918 20200303013125 20200303-0159 NETWORK

But so far, it does not enable those features. The attached images show What_I_have and What_I_Want

Does anyone know, does this still apply:

- https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Enable_chat_logging

with Zimbra-Connect?

So these:

- https://www.zimbra.com/zimbra-connect/
- https://zimbra.github.io/zimbra-9/admin ... d_features

refer to a "Dedicated audit log" but I'm at a loss (via trolling through the documentation, looking at the admin UI and making zxsuite calls at the CLI) around whether it's something that's configurable (e. g. enabling logging of chats).

Still digging...

Got it (thanks Cine for pushing me to query zxsuite attributes at the CLI), I ran:

Code: Select all

zxsuite config global set attribute ZxChat_LogEnabled value true


and started finding chat logs here:

Code: Select all

/opt/zimbra/log/connect_audit.log


Thanks for pushing me to query attributes at the CLI (didn’t take too long after all), I hope I didn’t waste time with a trivial admin thing.
