#16965 new defect

XMPP failure due to SASL not recognizing WEBEX-TOKEN

Reported by: ppwaskie Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.10.11 Keywords: jabber xmpp webex
Cc: kainz


I'm trying to get Pidgin to connect with my company's Jabber deployment. Unfortunately, the way it's deployed is as a hosted service, so we are required to use a SSO (single-sign-on) after the initial Jabber handshake. It appears to be because the authentication mechanism returned, of type WEBEX-TOKEN, is unknown to the SASL libraries. So the authentication immediately fails.

I have no plugins running when attempting this. My workstation is running Gentoo Linux, Pidgin version 2.10.11, USE flags are: "dbus eds gstreamer gtk ncurses networkmanager nls sasl spell xscreensaver"

Here's the snippet of the debug log, with accounts and company names changed to protect the innocent:
