Broadcast management is not working

Hi there,

I just installed the broadcast plugin. What makes me so tense is the broadcast plugin seems not working like it should be. This is my settings for this plugin. By the way, i have to manually insert the property name and property value in the Server Manager > System Properties.

plugin.broadcast.allowedUsers= my JID

plugin.broadcast.serviceName = broadcast

plugin.broadcast.disableGroupPermissions = false

plugin.broadcast.groupMembersAllowed = false

I also install the Client Control plugin. When i enable broadcasting in Client Management, then ALL users can broadcast EVEN i have set only me can send under the plugin.broadcast.allowedUsers

If i disable broadcasting under the Client Management, then all users cannot broadcast INCLUDING me, the administrator. Please help me to fix this problem

Spark has its own internal broadcasting (it just sends a bunch of a normal messages), which cant be controlled by the Broadcast plugin. The only option is Client Control plugin. Though, i think you are still able to send broadcasts, you just have to select users manuall while holding Ctrl, but you cant send to groups.

No no…thats now what i meant.

What i want is only me and selected users can broadcast message to all users.

You can’t do this. Broadcast plugin’s restrictions only work if user is sending broadcasts via broadcast plugin, but most of the clients (including Spark) has their built-in broadcasting features which cant be controlled.

thats the problem. this tool is very useful to use in a company.

now what i am doing is i dont install the Broadcast plugin and i disable the Broadcase via Client Management.

It is good if we can control who can broadcast message like how we can control who can create the chat room (conference).

If you uninstall broadcast plugin and disable broadcasting in Spark you are still able to bradcast to All Online users via http://server:9090/user-message.jsp form.

what if i want to broadcast to certain users or groups?

by the way, i have disable broadcasting in client management, uninstall the broadcast plugin…when i use the http://server:9090/user-message.jsp

the message was sent successfully but when i ask users, they dont get anything.

You will have to program something custom for that.

Yes. Sorry. I havent tested this with Broadcasting disabled in Client Management. So it seems this option not even hides some of the broadcast options in Spark, but also blocks Spark from getting broadcasts.

so i guess my problem here cannot be solved as the features that i want is still not available.
