Is there an API for backend to control the rooms?

Hello!

We are setting up a conference server for our needs and wonder if there is a way to control the rooms via a backend? For example could one set the password of the room by API? This is crucial as we need to be able to secure the rooms before-hand for only those who are involved.

Hi and welcome!
There is nothing like that at the moment. It is a very complicated case and it is possible to achieve with with some prosody custom modules, but the tricky part is that you need to allow jicofo to enter the room before setting the password.
