Determine moderator


I am interested in integrating Jitsi Meet into an application as part of a project.
A certain person should be the moderator of the conference. Is it possible to define this in advance?
So far I have only heard that the first participant of the conference is automatically the conference moderator.

Thank you very much!


That is just the default behaviour when you first deploy a self-hosted Jitsi service. There are various customisations you can make to change that.

Off the top of my head, these are the more common options:

Once you’re familiar with how everything works, you can also write custom plugins to implement your own rules. For example, this community member wrote a plugin to automatically promote someone to moderator if their email address corresponds to a prefix in the room name – Howto: Jitsi with oidc auth and forced moderator
