We use openfire as a small corporate Jabber server. We have organizational structure of departments, so I’ve created set of groups which named like our departments, in accordance to our structure. Self-registration and self-roaster editing is disabled - everything is controled by me and my IT-staff.
I have some inconvinience in group managemet. The case is users in some departments should not see users in all departments, just the ones I accept them to see.
We have groups: A,B,C,D,E,F
We’d like to create group G. Users in group G must see only the members of group A,B,C, but not E and F. And vice versa - every member of groups A,B,C must see members of group G in their rosters.
To do so I have to:
After creation of group G to share it to the groups A,B,C in openfire web-console (that is not a problem)
To make the members of group G see the members of A,B,C I have to share each group A and B and C to the group F. And It is a very inconvinient problem especially in case of big number of groups to share.
I need some tool, or plugin that makes group management more flexible, functional and convinient.
I suppose I could work around this problem using SQL request, but I’m not good at SQL
I’d be very appreciate for any advice I’ll get from you!
Thanks in advance!
