Contacts Sync between Outlook and SuiteCRM

Hello,

SuiteCRM 7.9.2
Suite CRM Outlook Plugin 3.0.5.0

I’m trying to sync contacts between Outlook 2016 and SuiteCRM.

What I’ve done so far:

  • In Admin > Studio activated “Sync to Outlook” Checkbox for both views, detail view and edit view.
  • Checked “sync to Outlook” checkbox for some contacts
  • Activated “Settings > Synchronization > Syncronize > contacts = Both” in Outlook Plugin
  • Checked that contacts to sync are associated with the user used to login from Outlook plugin into CRM: OK

Still not syncing…

Calendar sync and also (of course) archiving of emails works. So it does not seem to be a permissions problem, at least between Outlook plugin and CRM. But maybe inside CRM?

Two Questions:

  1. What can I do to debug that issue?
  2. How can I force a sync between them?

Looking forward for your answers. If more info is needed, pls send message B)

w/regards
Olaf

Some more information:

Switched log settings in Outlook plugin to Debug. Here is what comes as output:

As you can see there are some permission/detection errors. I think this is from SuiteCRM server?

Did anyone figure this out? Are there instructions on setting this up?
