I’d like to ask You whether somebody has experience with regular Addressbook imports, preferably automatised. We have a CSV file that is regularly generated by script. We want to import it, also regularly, to the EGw Addressbook.
The problem is, we cannot manage to make it work well.
Most of the contacts in the CSV do not change. However, we want those that are changed (eq. phone number) to be updated in Addressbook. Moreover, if those newly missing in CSV would get automatically removed from AB, would be nice. However, none of that works for us. So far the best we achieved, that it added contacts that were missing before, but those already existing don’t change at all.
Other approach would be, delete whole addressbook and import it again. Not nice:
-it bogs DAV synced clients (all contacts disappear and are synced again as new)
-it never worked well when import is done as EGw-ed cron job.
We attempted to use the import conditions (one of the last steps in import definition), but also failed miserably wondering, how the whole thing works :-)
Is there any documentation about the topic, please? Or a good advice?
