Custom command in MUC


as you know, in a typical MUC room with OpenFire, the list of available commands could be displayed by typing /help:

  • /clear : efface tous les messages dans cette conversation

  • /topic : définit le sujet de la conversation actuelle

  • /join : rejoint un nouveau salon de discussion

  • /j : rejoint un nouveau salon de discussion

  • /query [] : ouvre une discussion privé


I’m using OpenFire in a small business context and would like to add custom commands to this list.

By launching shell process directly in the MUC, it would make easier our day-to-day routine.

How can I manage to do that ? Do I need to work with a bot or write a plugin ?

Thanks a lot
