Kopano DeskApp autodiscovery

Posted by Felix Kronlage on Thursday, April 20, 2017

Kopano Webseite

There is a nice little feature in the Kopano DeskApp that makes you happy if you server an environment that holds a tad more than a dozen users and where you want to make it as easy as possible to login into the Kopano account for DeskApp users: autodiscovery of the servername.

By adding a txt record to your DNS Zone, you can point the users based on their e-mail address to the correct WebApp address. Since the DeskApp connects to the configured WebApp host, this is where the setting comes from.

$ dig -t txt bytemine.net | grep webapp
bytemine.net.        170    IN    TXT    "kdiscover https://webapp.bytemine.net/"

Nice little settings helper!
