I would like to be able to add some more attributes to Zimbra's user database. For example:
- I was building a custom application, which required entry of PIN. For this, we reused the postalCode (which we did not need) attribute and changed it's
translation to "PIN" in the user interface. Not pretty, but worked. Would be
great, if we could add such an attribute in such way, it would be visible
in all user creation/modification dialogs as simply another attribute. It would
also be great, if it survived Zimbra upgrade somehow.
- Adding some flags for other services. For example: Is this user allowed to do VoIP calls? International? What's his/her extension?
Is there a way to add custom attributes, query them via SOAP or LDAP
and add them to standard Zimbra administration console? I would rather not
have separate administration interfaces for users.
