Openfire / Spark - subgroups work but sub sub groups do not work

Objective:To get the organization hierarchy replicated in the instant messenger.

Environment: Server: Openfire 3.6.2

Client: Spark 2.5.8

What is working?

I have been able to get the sub groups work by using :: seperator.

What is not working?

The sub sub groups are not working.

So when I enter:

Level1::Level2::Level3

I want it to appear as:

Level1

Level2

Level3

But it appears as:

Level2

Level3

Questions?

  1. How to get sub sub groups kind of display working with openfire and Spark.

  2. If spark IM client does not have this feature will some other IM client like psi or exodus allow me to get a tree structure on the client side ?

Thanks

Sparks IM bug in forming the tree:

2 levels of sub groups: Tree is good.
3 levels of sub groups: Tree is good.

4 levels of sub groups: Tree is good.

5 levels of sub groups: Breaks the tree.

6 levels of sub groups: Breaks the tree.
7 levels of sub groups: Tree is good.

8 levels of sub groups: Breaks the tree.

9 levels of sub groups: Breaks the tree.

10 levels of sub groups: Breaks the tree.

What is causing this ?

Please look at the attached screen shots.

If you want me to do some additional testing let me know.

Thanks

Hi. This thread should be moved to Spark Support forum actually. As Openfire has nothing to do with the nesting. This nesting is a virtual one supported by some clients (Exodus, Spark). Issue with the Spark nesting is a long standing. I have reported it some time ago. Here are some related bug tickets:

http://www.igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-709

http://www.igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-1015

http://www.igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-946 this is probably not related to your second bug report, but Spark sometimes has issues with lining up groups.

UPD: i have added a link to this thread in SPARK-709 description.
