    Default CASifying Zimbra 8 question

    Hi all,

    I have Zimbra 8 installed and running. My question is about using CAS SSO for users login using: https://wiki.jasig.org/pages/viewpag...ageId=28213257
    Before i start changing the login procedure i would like to know if i have to create users accounts (mailboxes) in advance or by a user login (through CAS sso) his accout (mailbox) is being created automatically.

    Thank you in advance.

    You need to create the accounts.
    There"s no provisioning based on the CAS.

    Thank you Klug for your answer.
    I was thinking of using CAS or external LDAP based authentication. My problem is that i have to create around 1000 accounts. It's impossible to do it one by one, so CAS is out of the question.
    If i use our external LDAP server (which has all the usernames and passwords of our users, but not an email record like "username@mydomain.com") do i have to create all the accounts one by one, or there is an easier way?

    What about using the autoprovision feature in ZCS 8.x (it would help if you gave your ZCS version when posting a question in these forums).

    One more question,

    I'm thinking of using CAS as my authentication system. My problem is, as i have told before, that i have around 1000 accounts to create. I have all user's data (name, username, password) in an xls file. Is there a way of creating all the accounts using that excel file?

    yes there is, you can use zmprov to create the users - search the forums for a script example.

    I found a script here Bulk Provisioning - Zimbra :: Wiki
    When i run it i recieve an error message: prov> ?createAccount username@mydomain.com password givenName NAME sn SURENAME

    In my script file i didn't write the first line: createDomain mydomain.com because i already have that domain active in my server. Do i have to include that line even if i have that domain active?
