When configured, users can connect to multiple persistent chat pools. This allows users to join any chatrooms that are located on any of the specified persistent chat pools; There are multiple ways users can connect to persistent chat pools. These include:
- Explicit connection
- Auto-provisioning connection
Explicit connections involve specifying chat pools in the management tool. Only users within those specified persistent chat pools can log in. A single chat pool can be specified in the Default Persistent Chat pool endpoint address field. Multiple chat pools are specified by clicking the Connect to multiple Persistent Chat pools checkbox. Entries added to the table can be removed by pressing the Delete key.
Auto provisioned connections allow users to log in as any user located on the configured persistent chat pools on the server. The user does not need to specify any of the configured chat pools to log in as users located on them.
