Zimbra 8.0.7 and Caldav/Carddav + Mac Os 10.9.4

Postby it2@platbox.com » Fri Aug 29, 2014 8:00 am

Hello everybody!

I set up Caldav and Carddav on Thunderbird Lightning

Caldav
https://zimbra.address/dav/USERNAME/CalendarName
>

Carddav
https://zimbra.address/dav/USERNAME/ContactsName/
>

And everything works!

But when I use the same code on Mac OS x - nothing working.

I use Zimbra 8.0.7

I read manuals and wiki, but nothing helped me. ;(

Please help!

Apple Calendar and Lightning are configured in different ways. Lightning wants to know about individual calendars, Apple Calendar wants to know about accounts and will work out from that where all your calendars are.

I do these steps on Mac Os 10.9.4

System Preferences --> Internet Accounts

Select "Add Other Account"

Select "Add a CalDAV account"

Account type "Manual"

Put your email address in the "User Name" field

Password in the "Password" field

The name of your server in the "Server Address" field

Hit Create.
For CardDAV, things are slightly different.

System Preferences --> Internet Accounts

Select "Add Other Account"

Select "Add a CardDAV account"

Put your email address in the "User Name" field

Password in the "Password" field

The name of your server in the "Server Address" field

Hit Create.
Note that Apple Contacts only supports one address book per account, so you will only get to see addresses for one of your contacts folders

Thank you for answer! It really works right now.

But i hane one more question about contacts. As you say contacts were taken out from default contacts folders, but

I have created an external GAL account which takes emails from my AD and I called this contacts folder - ADBook. And then I shared for everybody this contacts folder. How can I make contacts to take out right from this folder?

(Sorry for my english)

I also have a question.

I have a shared calendar from (example) user calendar@domain.com and I share this calendar to everybody.

So when I making an event from my user myname@domain.com, I see that the sponsor for this event calendar@domain.com but not my myname@domain.com

How can I make my name is displayed as sponsor?!

As the Apple Contacts client doesn't support multiple Contacts folders, there isn't a straight forward solution.

I imagine it would be possible to create with just a contacts folder and periodically import all contacts from the Galsync account into that. If you gave the credentials to this account to your users, they could configure it as another CardDAV account. Not very elegant but it should work.

Return to “CalDAV / CardDAV / iSync”
