Automating Jive Connects for Office

It’s not well documented on how to deploy Jive Connects for Office (plugin software).  Digging into the MSI with Orca, I found the properties necessary for a basic unattended install/configuration.

One of the tricks is that this software is licensed per user, so it really needs to install in the user’s context and only for the user’s profile and not all profiles on the system.  The MSI property for this is

MSIINSTALLPERUSER=1

Next, the Office plugin should target the Jive website/service for your organization (see image below).  To do this, use MSI property In all, your command line should be as follows

DEFAULTSERVERURL="https://URL.jiveon.com"

So in the end, your command should be:

JiveOfficeInstaller.msi MSIINSTALLPERUSER=1 DEFAULTSERVERURL="https://URL.jiveon.com" /qn

I hope this helps :-)
