Hi Anthony,

I have some data that are specific for each user. How can I make use of the jiveUserProp table?

In order to use the jiveUserProp table you’ll want to use the Smack or Openfire’s API (depending on if you’re doing client or server side work) to avoid having issues with Openfire’s caching mechanisim.

what values does that table store?

I don’t believe the jiveUserProp table is not currently being used all that much, most of the data stored in there for tracking when users last created/modified their account.

what is propValue?

The propValue is the value associated with the username and name key values. So if I wanted to store my dog’s name in that table, username would be "me@example.com", name would be “dogName”, and the value would be “Bart”.

Hope this helps,

Ryan
