Changing administrators

When setting up OpenFire I desginated certain AD accounts as administrators.

  1. Where is this information kept? I’ve looked through the web interface and can’t find anything.

  2. I can designate a group instead of a user?

That information is stored in the openfire.xml file found in c:\Program Files\Openfire\conf. To the best of my knowledge it does not accept groups.

Look for this section near the top:

<admin>

<!-- Use this section to define users that will have admin privileges. Below,

you will find two ways to specify which users are admins. Admins will

have access to the admin console (only local users) and may have also access

to other functionalities like ad-hoc commands. -->

<!-- By default, only the user with the username “admin” can login

to the admin console. Alternatively, you can specify a comma-delimitted

list usernames that should be authorized to login to the admin console

by setting the <authorizedUsernames> field below. -->

<!-- <authorizedUsernames></authorizedUsernames> -->

<!-- Comma-delimitted list of bare JIDs. The JIDs may belong to local

or remote users. -->

<!-- <authorizedJIDs></authorizedJIDs> -->

<authorizedUsernames>list of usernames here</authorizedUsernames>

</admin>
