Overview of this plugin

Jive Software offers chat to connect your community. Jive Software has brought instant messaging integration between Jive SBS and Openfire. By installing Jive Connects for Openfire, community users can discover each other's presence status and initiate chats via the community user interface. Users' IM presence is easily discoverable from several locations such as the user profile, user profile hover, and the chat bar. The chat bar makes it even easier to find the people you wish to chat with by showing which users shown on the current page are online, as well as which of your community connections (such as people you're following) and friends are online.

Jive Connects for Openfire enables you to:

  • Speed up collaboration through seamlessly integrating enterprise IM.

  • See who's online and initiate chat from within Jive SBS.

  • Extend your enterprise IM investment.

Jive connects for Openfire integrates with the Openfire chat server and requires that each user has an XMPP chat client, such as Spark or Adium, installed.  Starting an IM conversation is made simple via a one-click action, which begins a conversation in Jive SBS between two parties with pre-installed XMPP clients.


Installation, setup, management and general use information is all detailed in our online documentation.
