I created a lua script in which I installed a new role for the current user.
local affiliation = "member"
local context_user = event.origin.jitsi_meet_context_user
if context_user then
if context_user["affiliation"] == "owner" then
affiliation = "owner"
elseif context_user["affiliation"] == "moderator" then
affiliation = "admin"
module:log(LOGLEVEL, "affiliation: %s", affiliation)
room:set_affiliation(true, occupant.bare_jid, affiliation)
In fact, I can only set the owner role. For all other roles I get “none” when I check on the client in the “JitsiConferenceEvents.USER_ROLE_CHANGED” event.
There is no affiliation such as
admin. Check this
Thanks for the answer. I tried to set as “publisher”, “member”, “outcast” but I get the changes to “none” in the client.
It’s not possible to use some affiliations in some circumstances and some affiliations don’t be supported by some XMPP implementions. Check this
So only one role is supported? I mean “owner” and “none”.
2020-11-12T07:57:47.616Z [conference.js] <a.>: My role changed, new role: none
outcast to kick the user.
According to my tests
outcast is better than
none in many cases
so what roles can I set at all?
FTR you are linking to a section about roles, not affiliations. Jitsi lua code can be very confusing about this distinction.
doesn’t work, i try to set “member” and get “none”
I linked it to refer how the affiliation is affected by the roles & room types. There are some tables in refered topic related with this issue
I found out that I can set “affiliation” to states “outcast”, “admin”, “member”, “owner”. But the client still gets the “none” role.
My role changed, new role: none
I have the same issue! I am not able to change the role of a participant. It can be changed using grantModerator logic. The function called “grantOwner” sets the role of the participant to “moderator”. But can’t find the definition of “grantOwner”
