    Default Shared Briefcases

    Hi to all.

    First of all let me apologize for the dual posting here and in administrators forum, but I don't know which is the right place to post this.


    I want to know if is possible to share briefcases in a hierarchy with different permissions, I have tried from the webclient with a mix of successful and failure. But want to know if there is any option to make this work including if this setup can only be done from cli as administrator.

    here is my requirement:

    I have several users lets call them:

    GM => General Manager
    PD => Production
    AD => Administration
    SL => Sales
    IT => System Administrator

    I want to login as IT and create a shared Briefcase hierarchy like this (permissions in brackets)

    Documents (ALL Read)
    - Production (GM Read, PD Full control)
    - Technical Information (All Read, PD full control)
    - Financial (GM Read, AD Full control)
    - Sales (AD and GM Read, SL Full control)


    I have tried this

    Test 1:

    Created the Documents Briefcase with all read and sent the message
    then created all the sub briefcases and specify permissions without sending the message

    then the users will see the proper folders and documents, also can create documents but no upload new ones (it says no permissions)

    Test 2:

    Created the Documents Briefcase with all read and sent the message
    then created all the sub briefcases and specify permissions sending the message

    then the users have the desired functionality but as all messages for all subfolders where sent, they also have a separate link for each subfolder which confuses the user.

    Is there any way to don't send the messages for the subfolders and make zimbra to know the proper permissions?

    Thanks

    There is an option to not send message in the dropdown box when setting the share.

    Yes, but If I use this option, the permissions dont are working as expected, this was my first test, and the users could see and create new documents, but not upload new ones (strange), but if the message is sent then the users gets the permissions working right but they get another link to the same folder they already see as a subfolder of the first shared folder

    Thanks

    Yes, re-reading your message you did indeed say that. That sounds very much like a bug and you should go ahead and log a bug for it at Bugzilla Main Page - Zimbra

    Dont forget to vote for the bug yourself once you've logged it.
