Drive -> Open Drive -> Zimbra Drive

Postby FredKarno » Wed Apr 10, 2019 8:31 am

Is there a post or announcement or any information on what is going on?
The release notes are very cryptic.


Zimbra Drive is declared Stable as of this release. If you had deployed with Beta, please refer to Known Issues.
When sharing a file in Drive, an email can be automatically sent to collaborators.
Users can now download entire folders from Drive via a new Download option on folder menus and context menus.
Reminder: Legacy Zimbra Drive based on Nextcloud / Owncloud integration has been renamed Open Drive, and is compatible with:
NextCloud versions 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 only (See NextCloud store for latest.)
ownCloud versions 9.0, 9.1, and 10 only

I didn't deploy beta with 8.8.12 (as advised) so my users now see "Open Drive" tabs.
Does that mean Zimbra installs a new instance of something like NextCloud? does my existing NextCloud need to be migrated?

Is there a roadmap?

Hi,

No, Zimbra does not deploy any owncloud (or similar) new instance.

You can disable that for your users, for instance at a COS level (just disable that zimlet)

Maybe this wiki throws some light.

OK, i'm getting confused between the new Drive which is a Briefcase replacement and the nextcloud integration which was called drive and is now called OpenDrive.

I wish they could have called Drive something like Briefcase NG!
