Force/Auto Login in Jabber Client on Login to Windows

We have de ployed Jabber to 200+ computers but we need to have it force or auto log the user in automatically when the user logs into Windows. There is the checkbox and the registry setting however these settings are not being saved after a reboot and we do not want the users to have the ability to not log in to Jabber so everyone is available on Jabber.

I have looked at this thread but I cannot believe that it would take an external batch script to get Jabber to do this:

Has anyone else been able to resolve this type of issue?

Thank you,

Re: Force/Auto Login in Jabber Client on Login to Windows

The jabber-config.xml file has a setting where you can turn on the auto-start functionality.


Sadly, there is no setting to enable the auto-login checkbox.

There has to be a way to

You can edit the jabberLocalConfig.xml in the following folder:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Cisco\Unified Communications\Jabber\CSF\Config

Change the following value to true or add the line if necessary.

<userConfig name="autologin" value="false"/>

The attached txt file has PS code that you can use to run on users machines.  This script has only been tested in one environment and only works correctly when the auto-login element is the first entry.  If anything changes the XML layout, this script will need to be updated or it will change the wrong setting.
