Remote Client Customization Reference

Remote Client Customization creates a script that modifies a number of registry keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Jive or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Jive. You can also use it to override authentication settings, or to autopopulate the community URL for new users.

Setting the Community URL

If you want new users to have the URL auto-supplied after a client installation, so they don't have to fill it in, you can create a remote client customization script with or without additional changes. The Jive instance URL will be pushed to clients so they can connect more easily. Note that users who download the client from the Tools page will have this URL auto-populated without any remote client customization.

Overriding Authentication Settings

You can override the authentication settings set on the client by selecting Force authentication behavior override and an authentication mode. However, you probably want to use the settings on the Advanced tab for this. See Setting Authentication. Note that if you do create an override using Remote Client Customization, it needs to match the settings on the Advanced tab.
Warning: This is typically an expert administrator use case for when you need to troubleshoot client issues for all your users: it is not recommended for standard deployments.
