The ZeXtras Client Zimlet

Along with the huge changes and improvements for all existing modules featured in ZeXtras Suite 2.0, a new component called "ZeXtras Client Zimlet" has been added to ZeXtras Suite.

This new entry allows end users to access new ZeXtras Suite features, along with some old ones which were previously available only in the ZeXtras Administration Console.

The ZeXtras Client Zimlet is 100% free, it requires the ZeXtras Core to be functional and its deployment is not mandatory.

Features

The ZeXtras Client Zimlet is more than a simple Zimlet: it's an evolving tool that will be expanded and extended over time to provide the best Zimbra experience possible to end users.

Current Features

Planned Features

Deploying the ZeXtras Client Zimlet

Deploying the ZeXtras Client Zimlet is easy, and can be done via the ZeXtras Administration Zimlet.

In order to deploy the ZeXtras Client Zimlet:

  • Log into the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Enter the "Core" section of the ZeXtras Administration Zimlet
  • Click on the "Deploy" button under "ZeXtras Client Zimlet"

Once deployed, the zimlet will appear in the deployed zimlets list as "com_zextras_client".

ZeXtras CLI

The ZeXtras Client Zimlet can be also deployed using a dedicated ZeXtras CLI command:

 zxsuite core doDeployClientZimlet

The ZeXtras Client Zimlet in multiserver environments

Deploying the ZeXtras Client Zimlet on multiserver infrastructures requires the same steps as it does on singleserver environments. The Zimlet is deployed in LDAP, so you'll need to only deploy it once regardless of the number of mailbox servers on your infrastructure.

Enabling the ZeXtras Client Zimlet

As for any client zimlet, after the deployment the ZeXtras Client Zimlet will be only enabled for users belonging to the default COS.

You can enable the ZeXtras Client Zimlet for your users in the following ways:

  • Per user - through the "Zimlets" section of each user's settings within the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Per COS - through the "Zimlets" section of each Class of Service's settings within the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Via the Zimbra CLI through the `zmzimletctl` command.

Updating the ZeXtras Client Zimlet

The ZeXtras Client Zimlet will be automatically updated by the ZeXtras Installer when updating ZeXtras Suite. Should this update fail, pressing the "Deploy" button mentioned above will deploy the latest version available.

Removing the ZeXtras Client Zimlet

You can enable the ZeXtras Client Zimlet for your users in the following ways:

  • By clicking the "Undeploy" button next to the related entry in the "Configure -> Zimlets" section of the Zimbra Administration Console
  • Via the Zimbra CLI through the `zmzimletctl` command.
