Having both authenticated moderators and unauthenticated meetings (without moderators) on the same instance?


I’m running a self hosted Jitsi Meet instance and ran it for the past few weeks, that unauthenticated users could setup rooms and simply use it.
Now I want to have the option for moderators to sign in and gain moderator rights, but keeping the possibility to simply create a new room without the need of a password or account.
At the moment, creating a room as unauthenticated user leads to “Waiting for the host”, which is not suitable for the intended use.

I simply followed the way described here to setup authentication. Is there anything I can configure to achive:

  • Having moderators to sign in to gain moderator rights
  • Having anonymous users starting conferences without moderation

at the same time on the same instance?
