How can clients differentiate newly created shared groups from regular groups?


My client has different options for contacts in a shared group vs contacts in a group the user created. A big difference is that the user can’t edit shared groups so those options aren’t displayed on the UI. The client currently knows which groups are shared groups by doing a shared group info query request (via the smack SharedGroupManager). I am using openfire 3.10.2 and it seems that the list of shared groups returned from openfire doesn’t get updated with the newly created shared group until after the user logs out and logs back in.

Is this a bug with openfire or am I using an incorrect method of identifying shared groups?

Thanks in advance,


Hi Brian,

I don’t have any insights to offer on this, it sounds like a bug. I have filed it here: https://igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/OF-962


Are you still seeing this issue with Openfire 4.0.3 ?
