We're getting ready to roll out Jabber 9.0.2 to about 2,000 users in a Cloud scenario (WebEx Connect + SAML). We have our software deployment package set and tested, but we are unable to programatically tick the 'Automatically start Cisco Jabber when my computer starts' check box. Since we're not running anything on-prem, I don't think we can do anything with a jabber-config.xml, can we?
You can set it up to run auto yourself, as with any other Windows program:
Thanks for the suggestion and quick reply! Unfortunately our deployment job runs as 'system' and dropping the shortcut in the startup folder makes it impossible for our users to easily opt-out (they're not admins). We'd much prefer to leverage the built-in capability if possible, but can't find where that bit gets set.
Greatly appreciate the feedback though!
In the 9.1 release of Jabber for Windows, there will be an option to configure it via jabber-config.xml file but that will still require the manual start of client atleast once. So the only seemless option is to add it to the 'Run' registry folder as Aaron mentioned in the above post.
Selecting/unselecting the option "Automatically start Cisco Jabber when my computer starts" in Jabber options creates/deletes a system registry in Run folder:
Key Name = Cisco Jabber
Key Type = String
ValueData = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco Systems\Cisco Jabber\CiscoJabber.exe"
I think this is exactly the details we were looking for. (Confirmation that the tick box creates the regkey, and detailed registry settings). We will investigate the solution and determine if it works. Thank you very much for your response!
