Ofcourse i found a missed property right after sending this.

  + Immutable property: AuthenticationInformation, a{sv}

    Dictionary of information given by the CM which can be used by the handler
    for authentication.

    well-known keys:
      username: string, Username to authenticate with if needed
      realm: string, Realm to use for authentication if needed
      session-id: XMPP session id as needed for the legacy jabber digest method.

Parallel lines never meet, unless you bend one or both of them.
