Isolated usergroups

I am trying to create several isolated groups within OpenFire. I am using Active Directory to authenticate users, but all users can search and communicate with all AD users. I want to limit the users so they can only search and communicate with the users from within the OU they are located in. Users in OU1 should only have access to users in OU1, and users in OU2 should only have access to users in OU2.

Is this possible?



Openfire is operating with AD groups only. You can’t manage OU’s. If you can do the same via groups, then you can try Packet Filter plugin to limit what groups can access which groups. Not sure about the search though, but disabling all packets probably should cover that too.

http://www.igniterealtime.org/projects/openfire/plugins/packetfilter/readme.html may help to filter the packets if the users are in groups.
