I upgraded a customers OpenFire Instance from 3.7.1 to 3.8.2. (with migration to new server)
Openfire is set up to use users and group from OpenLDAP
The usernames in OpenLDAP begin with Uppercase
Cognitus, crew, example.ch
I found a problem with the group sharing:
When I enable group sharing only with the group itself, the users are not subscribed (not added to each others roster).
When I enable group sharing for all users, the Users are subscribed to all other Users, but with capital first letter of the JID: Cognitus@jabber.example.ch instead of email@example.com and only with “to” instead of “both”.
I managed to get “both” with lowercase when disabling group sharing, restarting the server and enabling then group sharing for all. Strange, but this worked (at first by accident, but can be reproduced)
On the 3.7.1 instance it is all lowercase but they use Capital Usernames for login and connection. There the group sharing works as defined.
I couldn’t find a real solution.
Is this a known bug or what can I do to get group sharing working properly?
