    Default Bulk user creation and must change password

    Hi,
    Is there a way to disable the "must change password" when a user logs into the system the first time? I'd like to disable this option so that I could migrate their accounts from another system. Currently, my csv file has 3 columns: email address,full name,password.
    Thanks.

    i use zmprov all the time to create users and never had an issue with that being on by default. i use ldap authentication don't know if that makes a difference.

    Default Must change password

    From what I understand; when you configure external LDAP authentication, the system will simply "ignore" the must change password option.
    Thanks for responding.

    I don't know about changing the bulk user creation process, but you could just put together a script, using your .csv file as the source, and run 'zmprov ma' for each user. The attribute you want to change is called 'zimbraPasswordMustChange'

    Default Another question

    zimbraPasswordMustChange does the trick. Now, can you plug that parameter into the .csv file when you create users in the first place?
    Thanks.

    Why not just run the zmprov straight after the user is created ? Surely your .csv is just providing the list to a script for automation ?
