Zimbra Recent Account Activity (beta)

A Zimbra extension that allows the user to monitor their recent login and account activity. This is important to keep the user's account safe.

Designed for Zimbra version 8.8.

Bugs and feedback: https://github.com/Zimbra-Community/account-history/issues



Use the automated installer:

Log external ip

If you only see internal IP's in the account history, you need to configure Zimbra to log the IP from the X-Forwarded-For header. https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/LogFiles#LoggingtheOriginatingIP

zmlocalconfig zimbra_http_originating_ip_header
zimbra_http_originating_ip_header = X-Forwarded-For

zmprov mcf +zimbraMailTrustedIP
zmprov mcf +zimbraMailTrustedIP 
zmprov mcf +zimbraMailTrustedIP 

Configuring preferences

Support a semi-colon separated list of log files, only the audit.og log4j format is supported.

nano /opt/zimbra/lib/ext/accountHistory/config.properties

You can also have the extension read gzipped files (after log rotation), for now, it only reads yesterdays gz log.

nano /opt/zimbra/lib/ext/accountHistory/config.properties

  • Is it still "beta"? 

    By: Yannis on on 10/3/23 for version 0.1.5

    Can the "beta" in the title be deleted? Is there still a reason? I haven't seen any issues and I'm trying to get another admin to install it on their own server and it says it's "beta"... :)

  • It worked!

    How Long After Zimlet Is Installed Shows Previous Records?

    • It will show whatever it can find in your logs. So it should work directly after being installed.
