    Default zmprov to add contact photos?

    We are migrating from a system where users are accustomed to having a GAL that is both searchable and browsable (~600 users), so we are thinking of hiding user accounts from the GAL, and instead importing them into a shared addressbook using zmprov. (we've already done this for shared contact groups and it works well).

    When a photo is added to a contact, a 'gct' shows

    Flags: attachment
    then under attrs:
    image = null

    Are there any tricks for importing photos using zmprov or other means?

    not sure about the photos but i believe 6.0 will have a browseable gal so you may want to consider that depending on when you plan to deploy

    Thanks - we had hoped to deploy on 6.0 but it will not be ready in time. I haven't seen anything about a browseable GAL on the 6.0b2 testbed we have, but I could be missing it.

    it was mentioned in the blog post about 6.0 features, and the relevant bug is

    Bug 14531 – GAL via contacts folders with sorting, browsing and real sync

    it's marked as fixed, but i'm not sure if it's in the latest beta code.

    Hi all

    I'm also interested in how to add contact photos with the zimbra command line interface.

    When I look at a contact with photo (manually added) you just get:

    Code:
    zimbra@mail:~$ zmmailbox -z -m some.user@domain.ch gct 412700
    Id: 412700
    Folder: /Contacts
    Date: 09/21/12 08:38
    Flags: attachment
    Revision: 677424
    Attrs:
      lastName: User
      mobilePhone: +41791234567
      email: some.user@domain.ch
      firstName: Some
    of, if you specify -v to get verbose output:

    Code:
    zimbra@mail:~$ zmmailbox -z -m some.user@domain.ch gct -v 412700
    [
    {
         "attrs": {
              "email": "some.user@domain.ch",
              "firstName": "Some",
              "lastName": "User",
              "mobilePhone": "+41791234567"
         },
         "date": 1348209504000,
         "flags": "a",
         "folderId": "7",
         "hasFlags": true,
         "hasTags": false,
         "id": "412700",
         "isFlagged": false,
         "isGalContact": false,
         "isGroup": false,
         "metaDataChangedDate": 1348209504000,
         "revision": "677424",
         "tagIds": ""
    }
    ]
    But I can't find informations about the attachment or how to add attachment via cli.

    We are using Zimbra in a school environment with 150+ teachers and 1200+ pupils, so adding contact photos with Zimbra cli would come in very handy!

    Thanks,
    CrypTom
