This feature enables you to sign in to all Cisco Jabber services at the same time instead of the sequential sign-in process used earlier. Each service independently connects to its respective server and authenticates you based on cached data. This makes the sign-in process quick and dynamic. However, this feature is effective only from the second time you sign into Jabber.
You can configure the Fast Sign-in by using the STARTUP_AUTHENTICATION_REQUIRED parameter for all clients. However, for mobile clients you have to configure both STARTUP_AUTHENTICATION_REQUIRED and CachePasswordMobile parameters. For more information on configuring these parameters, see the latest Parameters Reference Guide for Cisco Jabber.
Configuration Refetch—Fast Sign-in does not retrieve server-side settings synchronously on every sign-in or sign-out. This happens only during the first sign-in as in previous Jabber releases.
For subsequent logins, a request is sent to fetch fresh configuration from the server at various points like within 1 to 5 minutes after sign-in, within 7 to 9 hours after sign-in, or whenever your users do a manual refresh for fetching the configuration.
You can configure ConfigRefetchInterval parameter to fetch configuration from the server every 7 or 8 hours. For more information on this parameter, see the latest Parameters Reference Guide for Cisco Jabber.
Action for Dynamic Configuration Changes
In Jabber 11.9, components and services react dynamically to configuration changes. You receive a notification prompt to Sign out or Reset Jabber depending on these scenarios:
Reset Jabber—If a primary service is changed, you will receive a notification prompt to Reset Jabber. For example, if the IM&P and Telephony account changes to a Phone only account, Jabber will require a Reset.
Windows—You will receive a pop-up notification that configuration has changed. You can either ignore the notification or Sign out and Login to use the new configuration.
Mobile Clients—Jabber signs out automatically. You then receive a pop-up notification indicating that the configuration has changed. Click OK to accept the configuration changes to sign in to Jabber automatically.
