Autoshare LDAP groups

Hi

I have read this thread http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/message/131212, but i wonder if this feature is yet implemented, because i can’t find any option in the administration interface. If so, where is it?

Thanks in advance.

I don’t think this has been done, judging on the current behaviour (I’m not seeing any groups shared by default). It’d love to see this though!

I’ve written a simple query (MSSQL) for adding sharing properties for groups. It could be improved to pull the group names from LDAP and share the whole lot in one go.

-- Declare and set variables
DECLARE @LDAPDEPARTMENT VARCHAR(80), @FRIENDLYNAME VARCHAR(80);
SET @LDAPDEPARTMENT = 'Your LDAP department name'; -- Insert values into table
INSERT INTO JIVEGROUPPROP (GROUPNAME, NAME, PROPVALUE)
VALUES (@LDAPDEPARTMENT, 'sharedRoster.displayName', @LDAPDEPARTMENT)
INSERT INTO JIVEGROUPPROP (GROUPNAME, NAME, PROPVALUE)
VALUES (@LDAPDEPARTMENT, 'sharedRoster.groupList', '')
INSERT INTO JIVEGROUPPROP (GROUPNAME, NAME, PROPVALUE)
VALUES (@LDAPDEPARTMENT, 'sharedRoster.showInRoster', 'everybody')

I’d like to see this too. Another thing that would be good would be the inclusion of Query-Based Distribution groups.
