Searchable user directory

I know that this question was asked before in this forum but I didn’'t find any answer on it.

Please can you tell me if there is any kind of searchable user directory available to search for registered users from a client (e.g. psi).

This must not be JEP-0055, any other solution is welcome.

Please can you help me …

Hi Sommer,

I actually have an implementation of JEP-55 that allows searching on names ready to go. I’'m planning on expanding the search capabilities to support mulitple criteria (namely usernames and email) in the next couple of days.

Matt has requested, and I completely agree with him, that this feature should be released as a plugin. Unfortunately, I haven’‘t been able to make it work as one. I’‘m hoping that I’'ll be able to get that issue sorted out shortly so that the plugin can be released.

Thanks,

Ryan

mm… about plugins. If some produce one, where can we find them? Maybe you will put them somewhere at the download page?

Yes, we’'re planning on putting up a plugins download page in the near future.

Ryan thanks for your answer. Please let us know when your

plugin is ready so we can test it …

But on the other hand, is there no way to search for

users in a pure Messenger installation ?

I will for sure do so.

No, not currently. Paul wrote a small Perl url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/forums/thread.jspa?forumID=40&threadID=13828&mes sageID=94376&#94376script[/url] that generates a static page that contains info on all users. You could use that or it would be fairly trivial to do the same thing in Java using the Messenger API.

Hello Ryan !

Are there some updates to your plugin ?

When will it be ready for testing …

Please let us know

Hi Somm,

The search plugin is ready to go but there is an issue with how Messenger works with external components (see url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/forums/message.jspa?messageID=94852#94852this[/url] post for more info) so I haven’‘t released it yet. I apologize for the delay. I’'ll post the plugin just as soon as the necessary changes have been made to Messenger.

Thanks,

Ryan
