In Spark 1.6 B2 when you go to accept a subscription when someone adds you to their contact list. If you blank out the “NickName” field to get the system to populate this field from the LDAP/Windows AD “Friendly Name” the contact addition will fail and the user has to do it again.
I beleive this worked in Spark 1.5.8 and works when you do this same action in adding a new user from doing a search.
This should be consistent between the different ways you can add a user to avoid having to train people different ways to do things on different panels.
The real fix would be to make Spark so it populates the Nickname with the Nickname mapped in the VCARD setup instead of the JID when connecting to LDAP, but for now this is workable…but it should be consistant.
Does anyone have any thoughts or ways around this issue ? Is it a bug or just an inconsistancy ?
I am in the process of Pilot Testing Openfire/Spark before deploying it to 9000+ Users in our organization and little things like this make a big difference in training and supporting the application in a large implementation.
