OF-1515: In this ticket the following was changed
And subsequently Private storage was removed altogether from OF 4.4
There are other types of usage of Private data (other than bookmarks) that were allowed for LDAP and non-LDAP users up to version OF 4.2 but now it is no longer workable.
e.g How will this work in the case of anonymous users?
or local users (not in LDAP) but have valid JIDs?
The Private storage via PEP service currently is not equivalent to old method of private Storage because the new PrivateStorage through PEP service does not support data for users who are not already registered on Openfire, and throws an exception:
Request must be initiated by a local, registered user, but is not: < end user JID >
and that is a major blocker for us when switching to the new service in OF later than Release 4.2 and above.
We need both types of users: local end users (who have valid JID but don’t need to login to openfire) and still have the use of Private Storage (as in previous versions of Openfire)…
as well as Openfire LDAP users (Authorised Agent users - who can make commands on behalf of such end users).
