[jitsi-dev] [Request] Add option to allow messages from non-list-contacts


#1

Hi!

We are hosting a website with anonymous web-chat-support for visitors. We plan
on switching to Jitsi as standard-client and have discovered, that Jitsi
silently ignores messages from xmpp-contacts which are not in the contact-
lists (which apllies to anonymous users). This also applies to service-
announcements issued by the server. Therefore I would ask, to add an option
with three states like "disallow, allow local, allow" and default Jitsi to
"allow local" as to receive service-announcements from the server the client
is logged into.

Kind regards

Jörn

Hey Jörn,

I don't think this is the case. I believe we do show such messages and we
actually have a special "Not in Contact List" folder that such out of
roster contacts appear in.

Cherrs,
Emil

Hi Emil,

that's funny. We tried Spark, Kopete and Telepathy and all these show these
messages - only Jitsi doesn't. We even tried Win7 and Linux. Maybe I'm
thinking to easy as XMPP is not my usual huntingground. The server we are
using is Openfire 3.8.2 (the current release). I didn't find anything
comparable in their bugtracker and as it only applied to Jitsi, I deemed it a
client-side problem. Maybe there are different modes of signaling which fail
in this respect.
Fact is, that no contacts show up and no messages are received. Only once or
twice somebody reported that Jitsi showed the "broadcast@server.tld is typing
a message"-window for a brief moment. As of now it seems to me the message is
sent but not shown by Jitsi. Any ideas on that or another possible cause?

Thanks

Jörn

Hmm ... interesting. We should have a look. Could you please open a ticket?

Thanks,

Hi Jörn,

actually delivering those messages was broken after adding a new
feature to Jitsi, it is now fixed and will be available in next build
(I believe it will be 4754). Check it out, does it work for you?

Thanks, the latest nightly build is accepting the non-roster-messages again.
So if somebody with a different setup could verify this I think we could
consider this issue closed.

Btw, as it doesn't justify an own thread: Is somebody working on the support
for groupchats or is this area postponed momentarily? Now with messages from
non-roster-contacts working again another quirk in the handling of group-
communication showed up right away. If this is of interest I would open a
thread about it.

Kind regards,

Jörn

Yes please close it.

Yes please do. We are currently dedicating effort to improving groupchats as we are working on an integration with the videobridge calls.

Cheers,
Emil
