The permission mode, one of the following:

  • PERMIT_ALL-Permits all users to be aware of the gateway's online presence and state. This is the default mode if you do not call this function.
  • PERMIT_SOME-Permits only users in the permit list to be aware of the gateway's online presence and state.
  • DENY_SOME-Prevents all users in the deny list from being aware of the gateway's online presence and state.


True if the permit mode was set; False otherwise.

Note: If the XMPP server does not support permission management, this function returns False to all values except PERMIT_ALL.
