Chat rule messages

Message

You can provide a custom message which will be sent to the chat initiator if he is prohibited from chatting with the chat recipient. You can use %s as a substitution placeholder for the chat recipient’s name.

Example

You are not authorized to chat with %s.

Default message

If no custom message is provided, Instant IMtegrity sends this default plain text message to the chat initiator:

Chats with %s have been prohibited by your administrator.

Message formatting

You can use plain text or HTML messages.

HTML messages must be wrapped in <span> tags, otherwise some IBM Sametime clients might not render the message properly.

Good

<span>You are <b>not</b> allowed to chat with %s</span>

Bad

You are <b>not</b> allowed to chat with <i>%s</i>
