Configuring the eXo Chat add-on can be done by creating a
chat.properties file or using the
exo.properties file (if you have not created this file, see Configuration Overview).
These configuration files are located in:
$PLATFORM_TOMCAT_HOME/gatein/conf/ for Tomcat.
$PLATFORM_JBOSS_HOME/standalone/configuration/gatein/ for JBoss.
You were asked to create the files for security during the setup. If you include any parameter below into the
exo.properties, you should add the prefix
chat. to its name, such as
chat.dbServerHost. Besides, in case both of these files are used, parameters in the
exo.properties file will have higher priority than those in the
|mongo||You should always use the default value. The other value, embed, is used for unit testing.|
|localhost||The host name or IP of MongoDB.|
|27017||The port number to connect to MongoDB host.|
|The MongoDB nodes to connect to, as a comma-separated list of <host:port> values. For example "host1:27017,host2:27017,host3:27017".|
|chat||Name of the Mongo database name.|
|false||Set it true if authentication is required to access MongoDB.|
|EMPTY||Provide the username to access the database if authentication needed.|
|EMPTY||Provide the password to access the database if authentication needed.|
It is highly recommended to define the parameter
dbServerHosts instead of defining the two parameters
dbServerPort as they are depracated starting from eXo Platform 5.0 version.
Generally, you do not need to configure those unless you have secured your MongoDB. See details about connecting to secured MongoDB in Secured MongoDB.
This server is used for Sending meeting notes (see Recording a discussion). The parameters of mail configuration for the eXo Chat server are the same as those of Outgoing Mail Service, but without the prefix
exo.. Notice that if you include these parameters into the
exo.properties file, you should add the prefix
chat. to their name.
The mode of the chat server:
The password to access REST service on the eXo Chat server.
