Hello everybody,

Just a few question about the way to edit and fill some properties of public address book in Kerio.
My goal is to provide a global address book filled with all information like phone, mobile, web site, address...

I made some tests to edit a contact published in Global Address Book and add some info like telephone, mobile company and address with webmail.
I found samples in Kerio client api to do this.
Each time I made a change in a list or an account in the admin interface, the updated contact revert to it's original state
Just first name, last name and email.

I'll do the same with client api, but i got same issue.
The ldap database seems to be locked, and I can't edit it even with admin credential !

The only way to do this seems to :
1 create a empty public contact address book
2 collect all account with api for all domain and copy to the empty public adress book
4 manually edit all account in this new address book with webmail
5 check periodically if any change in accounts (add, delete) for all domains and go to step 2

Questions:
- Is it a way to edit the Kerio ldap directly ?
- What do you think about my solution, and do you have a better idea ?

Best regards,

Hi,

that's purpose of the GAL. If you want to update the contact information you have to do it on the source otherwise local changes will be lost. That's exactly what you described.

Mo matter if you are using Active Directory or Open Directory you should edit it in the directory service and handling an LDAP connection is not so difficult from various languages so Kerio Connect client API won't help in this case.
