Using custom Sql Server users table for authentication


I just installed OpenFire and I’‘m trying to get a few things set up, I followed the documentation but still couldn’'t get custom authentication to work.

I added the following section according to the guide and inserted the correct information

Openfire is setup to use sql server as the db backend and I can see all the jive* tables created. But I would like it to authenticate using our previously existing Users table. It’'s just a simple table named Users with the fields Username and Password. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!


Are you really storing your passwords as plain text?

For now it is. This is just for testing, I just wanted to get OpenFire working w/ the Users table first.
