Reporting Account Affiliations Plugin Readme


The Reporting Account Affiliations plugin provides a way for Openfire to report to other entities the relationship it has with a user on its domain, as specified in XEP-xxxx: Reporting Account Affiliations.

Note: at the time of writing, the protocol as implemented by this plugin has not yet been accepted for consideration or approved in any official manner by the XMPP Standards Foundation, and this document is not yet an XMPP Extension Protocol (XEP). This plugin should be considered experimental.


Copy accountaff.jar into the plugins directory of your Openfire installation. The plugin will then be automatically deployed. To upgrade to a new version, copy the new accountaff.jar file over the existing file.

Using the 'member' affiliation

The Reporting Account Affiliations specification defines four 'affiliation' types:

the address belongs to an anonymous, temporary or guest account. The user is not known to the server.
the address belongs to an account that self-registered, e.g. using XEP-0077
the address belongs to a trusted member of the server - e.g. accounts that are provisioned for known users.
the address belongs to a server administrator

This plugin is able to automatically determine the correct affiliation value for a user, but will (without manual configuration) never resolve the 'member' affiliation: Openfire does not keep track of how an account was registered.

To make this plugin report an account as having the `member` affiliation, you can configure the corresponding user to have a User Property with the name RAA Affiliation that has the value member

User properties can be edited on the Admin Console when the RawPropertyEditor plugin has been installed.
