  • Unable to share a folder with another user (in the same context)

    Hi

    I'm unable to share a mail and/or groupware folder with another user from the same context.

    Groupware folder (for example calendar):
    Here I can't add permissions for another user, only groups are displayed (Properties->Permissions->Add->Select Users)

    Mail folder:
    No users are visible and the groups are inactive/grayed out
    (Properties->Permissions->Add->Select Users)

    Setup:
    OX: 6.18.0 Rev2 ( 2010-07-30 09:51:43 ), open-xchange-folder-json not installed

    IMAP-Server: Dovecot with enabled ACL-Support:
    Code:
    INFO: 
            IMAP server [imap.example.com/xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:143] CAPABILITY response indicates support of ACL extension
            and specifies "RIGHTS=texk" capability.
            ACL extension according to RFC 4314 is going to be used.
    Do I have to configure anything to get folder sharing for users to work?


    Many thanks for your help
    Christian

    Hi,

    do you have the global address book enabled? This is required to share groupware folders. Mail folders can only be shared to users, not to groups since groups don't exist on the IMAP server.

    Greetings

      Indeed that was the problem. Thank you!

      Now I'm able to share groupware folders between users.
      However sharing mail folders still doesn't work correctly. After setting permissions on a mail folder for another user via Folder Properties -> Permissions -> User Add -> Save, the permissions/ACLs will be set correctly (I could also verify this on the Dovecot side). After switching to another folder and going back to the folder on which I had set the permissions before, no permission settings are visible anymore...

      When I login with the second user (for whom I had shared the mail folder before) subscribing the previously shared mail folder via Subscribe Folder seems to work. But when I go back to the subscription list, the subscription check-box is unchecked, and the folder doesn't appear in the e-mail tree.

        Hi Christian,

        we've multiple known issues with folder subscriptions in 6.18-rev2. Please check the next RC which will be available in a few days. It will be announced through the forums etc.

            Yes, we can! ;-)
            It depends on the imap-Server and how (and who <g>) it is implemented.
            We use cyrus including the group-ACLs and it works fine for us and all our customers. Only for OX-SE/-HE and Reseller-HE. Not for -AE yeat.
            Can be administrated by http://oxadm.de

              Yeah well, i took conventional installation as example, of course the sky becomes the limit if pro-ite is implementing the mail system

                IMAP folder sharing still doesn't work with 6.18.0-Rev4. Can you provide any ETA or bug ID for this issue?

                Thanks and regards

                  Hi,

                  what Dovecot Version are you using? There are some issues left with Dovecot 2.0. If you're using Dovecot 1.x, please open a new bug report for that matter.

                  Greetings

                    It's Dovecote 2.0.1, so I guess I have to wait

                      Hi have quite the same problem as chrigu
                      If I try to share the calendar for several users (the last created I believe), when I go in :
                      Properties -> Rights -> Add -> Select users , the users list displayed doesnt list the totality of the users.

                      More than this :
                      - for several users, I have 3 or 4 times the same user displayed.
                      - I have sometimes a non existent user in the context displayed. The only link is its email adresse in the addressbook of the user.

                      I am on OX6 6.16 rev 3 with Openldap, Cyrus2.2, oxtender4thunerbird, and funambol
                      All works fine except this point

                      How can I solve it ?
                      Is there a way to reindex or reset some users table ?

                      Thanks a lot for your answers

                      Yves.

                        In our 6.18.2 server we have the problem, that it is simply not possible to change access rights for folders. Doesn't matter, if it is a calendar, contacs or infostore folder.
                        Is there a global variable to allow that feature?
