XMPP Tasks

Properties   Configuration Settings  

The XMPP Task adds instant messaging functionality to your SSIS Package.


eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol is a highly extensible instant message service based on XML packets. The XMPP Task is a lightweight XMPP instant messaging client which enables you to send instant messages to any XMPP client within your service's network.

XMPP Send Task

At a minimum, you must supply an IMServer, IMPort for the connection and a ToJID for the intended recipient of the message. In order to authenticate with the XMPP server you will need to specify a User and Password. The AuthMethods property contains a preferential list of authentication methods to be enabled on the task.

The task will send the contents of the MessageText property as the instant message body. The task also supports sending HTML in the message body via the MessageHTML property.

A simple text message in the MessageText property can alternatively be treated as HTML via the TreatMessageAsHTML configuration setting. Also, when sending to clients that may not support reading HTML entities, ParseHTML can be set to cause the task to parse an HTML entity into the simple text body of the instant message.

The XMPP Send Task has support for SSL transport layer security. This may be enabled by setting SSLStartMode, SSLCert and SSLAcceptServerCert to appropriate values.
