XMPP Jabber Auto Authorize

Reported by: iosys Owned by:
Milestone: Plugin Suggested Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.1.1 Keywords:


The ability to auto authorize buddies would be a great feature. I have used it in other Jabber programs. When rolling out pidgin/jabber in a business environment it becomes a major undertaking trying to get the buddy list set up and keeping it maintained on everyone's computer. You constantly have to go back and forth between computers to keep authorizing buddies and deleting all the duplicate contacts that are created for some reason. I already tried using a shared roster and that has bugs with online presence.

A centrally administered XMPP server can easily manage roster entries and subscription status for all users from a central location. It should not be necessary to actually touch anyone's client to do this. I would love to be able to suggest shared rosters as a functional solution to this but they create as many (varied) problems as they solve. We used this quite effectively during the initial roll-out of a test server at my previous employer.

All that being said, it has been in the plans for a while to allow for plugins to automatically accept/reject authorization requests it has just never actually been completed.
