Defined Groups for Cisco Jabber Group Chat

I dont think it is possible based upon this document but wondering if anyone knew any secrets out there. Is it possible to create predefined groups in Jabber for Windows preferably as defined in Active Directory or on the client side? We want to have chat groups automatically created for Sales, Engineering, etc. so users dont have to add other chat recipients users manually and can reach any engineering team member without knowing who is actually part of the engineering team for example.

Hi, Jabber for Windows 9.7



Jabber for Windows 9.7 supports Persistent Chat end user participation.

Our next Release, 10.5 will add Room Administration and Moderator features, including room creation.


Persistent Chat Rooms

Users in your organization can use persistent chat rooms to share ideas and information in a chat room. The chat rooms look like group chats, except that the chat rooms stay active even after participants leave the room. When participants come back to the room, they can scroll back to read the messages that they missed.

Participants can manage their chat rooms by browsing the existing rooms and joining open rooms, or being added to a room by an administrator. When they are in the chat rooms, participants can create mentions for other users, which notifies the mentioned user if they are a member of the room. They can also search chat rooms for particular keywords or senders by creating filters.

Administrator tasks include creating, configuring, and deleting chat rooms, and adding or removing users from chat rooms. In this release, chat room administration and moderation must be performed with a client that supports persistent chat room administration. Cisco Jabber for Windows will provide administrative capabilities in a future release.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence Version 10 is a software prerequisite for persistent chat rooms.

For end user information about persistent chat rooms, see the chapter on Chats in the Advanced Feature Guide.

For administrator information about enabling persistent chat rooms, see the Installation and Configuration Guide and the Server Setup Guide.

Do you know if the added

Do you know if the added features in 10.5 allow integration through LDAP to have administrators automatically assign users to groups? Can it be made so that users cannot leave a certain room which they have been added to by an administrator?

I don't understand what you

I don't understand what you mean by "integration through LDAP to have administrators automatically assign users to groups" . Do you mean that people of a particular OU can be added to the chat room?


I don't think there is an option to make sure that no user cannot leave a certain room.
