Logging in to Zimbra via non-Browser client
1) i am not 100% sure this is the proper forum for this question, but i found no "generic questions" forum (or similar).
2) Until today i was just an innocent Zimbra user (HTML client), so i'm not at all familar with Zimbras private parts and may just be overlooking something which is obvious...
My company uses Zimbra and would like to port an internal "Who's In/Out of The Office" calendar based on Zimbras calendar data. i've been poking around the AJAX API (mostly via snooping the request/response JSON via Chrome dev tools) and i've come across what appears to be a big hurdle... (but is more likely an oversight on my part).
The only mechanism i can find to do a login assumes the client is a browser. i've scoured the various text files which informally describe the requests and have not yet found a login request.
If it is indeed not possible to perform a login via the AJAX API then i can kill this project before it starts.
