Can I add users to database directly?

Can I add users to databse directly? And can the users be avaliable instantly?

I’'m using MS-SQL database

Hi Semico,

  1. You can add users directly to the database, either manually or via the userImportExport plugin.

  2. Not sure what you mean by ‘‘available instantly’’. They should be available via the JM Admin console and ready to be used for a client login e.g. PSI without restarting jive messenger, but you would need to test that.

Hope that helps,


Thanks a lot!

And here is another question:

I’‘ve noticed that the password is stored as plaintext without any encode. So I wanna know wether Jive can store the password using MD5 encode? And the client can still log in. I’'m using Pandion to be the client.

thanks a lot

Hi Semico,

It is possible but you would have to implement your own AuthProvider.

This thread: http://www.jivesoftware.org/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=97804

has a link to a number of other threads related to this issue. I would advise you to read these as encoding passwords is not as useful or straightforward as you would think…
