I want to begin by apologizing for my lack of knowledge since I am a newbie to Openfire. Nevertheless, I am hoping that you can help.
There seems to be a problem with the Subscription plugin for OpenFire when used with Spark. Here are the versions that I am using:
Server: Openfire 3.6.3
Clients: Spark 2.5.8
A regular user in Spark can select Add Contact from the Contacts menu, enter another users’ username and then click Add. The other user is then included as a Pending status.
The good news is that the next time this other user logs in, s/he is never given the option to accept the contact request. The bad news is that when the user making the request logs in again, the other user is now included in their list of friends. The other user never even approved the request and they are now included as the requesting user’s Friend.
Is this a bug in the Subscription plugin itself? If so, it seems to render the plugin functionally useless with Spark. I have checked the System Properties of the Administration Console and the following properties are listed:
Any thoughts on how to revent users from adding additional contacts?
