In phone mode deployments, Cisco Jabber integrates with both Cisco WebEx Meeting Center and Cisco WebEx Meetings Server.
To access and attend meetings, the meetings host account must contain the URL of the meetings site. There are two methods to input the meetings site:
You can populate the meetings site in the host account with the client configuration file, jabber-config.xml.
Set the meetings site as the value of the Meeting_Server_Address configuration parameter. See the Installation and Configuration Guide for more information.
Users can enter the meetings site themselves when they set up their host account.
Authentication with Conferencing Servers in Phone Mode Deployments
In phone mode deployments, users must enter their credentials in the Options window of the client user interface. You cannot enable single sign-on (SSO) or synchronize user credentials in phone mode deployments. However, you can use two types of authentication with conferencing servers.
The client passes credentials directly to the conferencing server.
To enable direct authentication, you must first create user accounts on the conferencing server. Users must then enter their credentials in the Options window in the client user interface. When the client then attempts to authenticate the user, the conferencing server can validate the credentials.
Authentication with an Identity Provider
The client redirects authentication from the conferencing server to an identity provider that you manage and control.
The following steps describe the flow for authentication with an identity provider:
Users enter their credentials in the Options window in the client user interface.
The client attempts to authenticate with the conferencing server.
The conferencing server redirects the client to the identity provider for authentication.
The identity provider validates the credentials and passes an authentication token to the client.
The client then passes that authentication token to the conferencing server.
