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.
I have successfully setup our Openfire server using our Active Directory LDAP. I am also able to use Spark for client communication. Here are the versions that I am using:
Server: Openfire 3.6.3
Clients: Spark 2.5.8
But before I roll it out to our company, I have been asked for certain configuration changes to be made first:
I need to restrict regular users to only IM with supervisors but allow supervisors to IM with anyone in the system. How do I set this up (keeping in mind that our users and groups are imported from AD–if this makes a difference)?
I need to make sure that the users’ ability to manually add other users their contact list has been disabled.
In the administrator’s console, all of the users from our AD are showing up, including accounts that have been disabled. Since our corporate policy is not to remove departing employees from our system but to disable them, how can I limit the users to active AD accounts?
Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide!
