Class JDBCAdminProvider

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class JDBCAdminProvider
    extends Object
    implements AdminProvider
    The JDBC admin provider allows you to use an external database to define the administrators users. It is best used with the JDBCAuthProvider & JDBCGroupProvider to provide integration between your external system and Openfire. All data is treated as read-only so any set operations will result in an exception.

    To enable this provider, set the following in the system properties:

    • provider.admin.className = org.jivesoftware.openfire.admin.JDBCAdminProvider
    Then you need to set your driver, connection string and SQL statements:
    • jdbcProvider.driver = com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
    • jdbcProvider.connectionString = jdbc:mysql://localhost/dbname?user=username&password=secret
    • jdbcAdminProvider.getAdminsSQL = SELECT user FROM myAdmins

    If you want to be able to update the admin users via the UI, add the following properties:

    • jdbcAdminProvider.insertAdminsSQL = INSERT INTO myAdmins (user) VALUES (?)
    • jdbcAdminProvider.deleteAdminsSQL = DELETE FROM myAdmins WHERE user = ?

    In order to use the configured JDBC connection provider do not use a JDBC connection string, set the following property

    • jdbcAdminProvider.useConnectionProvider = true

    • Method Detail

      • assumePersistedDataIsEscaped

        protected boolean assumePersistedDataIsEscaped()
        XMPP disallows some characters in identifiers, requiring them to be escaped. This implementation assumes that the database returns properly escaped identifiers, but can apply escaping by setting the value of the 'jdbcAdminProvider.isEscaped' property to 'false'.
        'false' if this implementation needs to escape database content before processing.
