How to check chat history from all users in openfire server?

I need to check what each client is sending and receiving and I have installed the “Monitoring service” plugin, however I have no idea if that is what I need nor do I know how to use it !!!

Can someone give me indications? I am quite lost :S

I don’t have a server with that plugin installed near me right now, but it should be straightforward. There should be a few fields to put usernames and set dates. This way you will pull a conversation history of those two users on a specific date. If you want to see all messages of all users in one view, i believe this plugin can’t provide that. There is another option. To turn on Message Audit Policy in Server > Server Settings. Then everything will be saved into log files. It will be in xml format, which is not easy readable. A few community members provided a reader tool for such logs. http://community.igniterealtime.org/docs/DOC-1874 (download the latest version)

Where can I find those fields ? They dont seem to appear anywhere !! :S

Thanks for the plugin though, I will check it right away !

After you install Monitoring Service there should be a menu at the top menu (2nd line, under the Server) called “Archiving”.

Thanks, you helped a lot !

I uploaded monitoring.jar and clicked on the upload plugin. it is showing message like “Plugin uploaded successfully. It may take a short time for the plugin to appear in the list of installed plugins.” but still i am not seeing any archieving under server tab. Please help me on this.

Anything in the logs?

I don’t know where i can check. I am new to openfire

I am using Openfire 4.0.2 . I installed monitoring.jar. i want to display previously chat messages in one to one and group chat

Current version of plugin is only for 4.1.0+. 1.5.4 should work for you.
monitoring 1.5.4.jar (4851596 Bytes)

Thank you. I am able to see monitoring services in plugin section but when i go to servers -->I got admin.sidebar.statistics.name and admin.sidebar.archiving.name . when i click admin.sidebar.archiving.name tab i am getting error.

Stop Openfire, Remove the plugin (both jar file and a folder from Openfire installation folder /plugins), rename the downloaded plugin to just monitoring.jar and upload it again.
