Importing contacts from a csv file into the kopano addressbook


is there an elegant way to import contacts from a csv file into the kopano addressbook?

I already added a contact manually and therefore see, which objectclass and attributes are used. An alternative would therefore be to create an ldif file for every contact and import it with ldapadd.

Thanks for any suggestion,


Hi @smguenther,

just to confirm, you are talking about the global addressbook in Kopano (so the ldap tree) and not a users contact folder? (especially the second part leans strongly toward ldap, just wanted to be sure anyways).

I think on UCS csv import is only part of UCS@School, but should be easily scriptable with udm even if you are not running it. I managed to find the following example, which only needs to be extended for the Kopano relevant attributes: Csv Datei integrieren

Hello fbartels,

thanks for you fast answer and guiding me to the posting.

Have a nice weekend,
