Manage Zimlets from the Administration Console
The following Zimlet management tasks are available from the Zimbra administration console.

*
You cannot uninstall the Zimlet from the administration console.
Deploy Custom Zimlets
You can download and deploy custom Zimlets from the Zimlet Gallery located on the Zimbra Web site. When a Zimlet is deployed, it is available immediately to everyone in the default COS. If a Zimlet is not deployed to another COS directly, the COS displays the Zimlets but they are not enabled.
1.
From Configure > Zimlets gear icon menu select Deploy.
2.
The Zimlet deploys to the server. A dialog displays indicating the server name where the Zimlet is deployed and the status of the deployment.
3.
Click Finish.
Verify the Zimlet is enabled by viewing the Zimlets page.
Enable, Disable, or Make Zimlets Mandatory
You can enable or disable Zimlets, or make them mandatory. You can also use the toggle feature to enable or disable an installed Zimlet.
On a class of service Zimlets page select the default Zimlets you want to enable, disable, or make mandatory to users in the COS.
*
Mandatory. Select mandatory if you want a Zimlet to always be enabled in users’ accounts. Users do not see these Zimlets on their Zimlet page.
*
Disabled. Disable the Zimlet if you do not want a Zimlet immediately available to users in this COS.
*
Enabled. All Zimlets that are deployed are enabled.
Note:
Undeploy a Zimlet
When a Zimlet is undeployed, it is removed from all COSs and then removed from the LDAP.
1.
Go to Configure > Zimlets page and select the Zimlet to undeploy.
2.
3.
Click Yes to confirm.
Add Proxy-Allowed Domains to a Zimlet
Proxy Allowed Domains lets you configure which external domains can be accessed through a Zimlet. For the Zimlets that are included in ZCS, proxy allowed domains are already configured. If you download and deploy other Zimlets, you can add additional proxy domain names.
1.
Go to Configure > Class of Service, select the COS to edit.
2.
In the Advanced page, scroll down to the Proxy Allowed Domains section.
3.
Click Add Domain to add domains.
4.
Click Save.
Upgrading a Zimlet
Use the same steps as deploying a new Zimlet to upgrade a customized Zimlet.
The new Zimlet zip file should have the same name as the existing Zimlet zip file.
1.
From Configure > Zimlets gear icon menu select Deploy.
2.
Check Flush Zimlet cache so the upgraded zimlet will be used.

Click Finish.
