account x alias
We migrate from exchange to zimbra 5.0.14
But in Exchange ours users have a registration number and
a email alias.
But when searching at GAL in Zimbra we have only accounts listed.
How can i have aliases listed too???
And can I have the accounts (registration number) supressed
from GAL window?
I see many people (2007/2008) asking about hide aliases in GAL.
But here we have a account like "3499" and something like email@example.com as alias address.
This (hide) was changed using some variable like "ZimbraHideAliasinGal" and
i can unset??????
In the admin GUI, when you look at a given alias, there's a checkbox to hide it in the GAL.
If you'd like to automate the process you should be able to do it with a shell script that enumerates all the aliases and then steps through them using zmprov ma to set the appropriate attribute

Actually, I may have spoken too soon. Not sure what the default behavior for aliases is these days; it's gone back & forth and I don't see a way to modify it via the admin GUI. Two relevant bugs:
Bug 23298 – All aliases appear when doing GAL auto-complete when composing new message
Bug 14919 – hide aliases in GAL on a per-alias basis
One thing you could do would be to convert your aliases into single-account distribution lists, which can be selectively exposed/hidden as you see fit.
Thanks for the post. But, what I need is just de opposite.
Can I hide the account name and show alias list ????
And yes, I see many diferent posts about alias changing
situation, too... :)
I think suggestion to show/hide aliases per-alias basis can
solve this fight...
I see. You want people to log in with their registration number, but you want mail to be received at their email address.
For now I guess you could either use the distribution list trick, or switch the alias and email address on all accounts. I'm not sure how laborious either one would be, and I know I'd want to take a backup before running any script designed to carry out the job.
