OpenFire properties


I am wanting to know more about the following properties in OpenFire:

  • provider.auth.className

  • provider.user.className

What are the above properties used for? What is the difference between the two of them in the way that they are used?

Any help appreciated.



One is for user authentication and the other is for receiving info about users. I have a setup that authenticates and gets user info from vtiger if you want to see an example.

Best regards,



Thank you for replying.

If you could provide an example that would be great.

What I am trying to do, is to get OpenFire to first authenticate against active directory and then authenticate against the internal database.

I’m thinking it has to do with setting the proprties I’ve listed in my query.



Hi Andrew,

there’s the hybrid auth provider which allows to use multiple sources for authentication. Anyhow I’m not aware of a detailed documentation of it, anyhow http://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/openfire/docs/latest/documentation/javadoc/ org/jivesoftware/openfire/auth/HybridAuthProvider.html is available.
