Description DiQ 2014-04-09 15:06:12 CEST
Zimbra 7.2.6
ZxChat 1.17

There's no way for an admin to search the contents of chat users, for instance as it is in Zimbra 7 built in chat and as I'm sure exists in other XMPP servers.

Greetings DiQ,

could you please be more specific about your request?

What do you mean by "search the contents of chat users"?
Comment 2 DiQ 2014-04-09 15:47:36 CEST
To be more clear I mean search user chat history, as described for Openfire here :


For example it can be necessary search either individual user / group histories to prevent crime or misconduct or to comply with legal and regulatory obligations.

Marking as resolved - the global ZeXtras Chat log can be activated by running:

zxsuite chat setproperty ZxChat_LogEnabled TRUE

The log is automatically rotated so make sure to store a copy for long-term needs.
