[jitsi-dev] JWT authentication : prosody nightly build in production environment?


#1

Hello all,

As mentioned in the documentation of jitsi-meet, to make JWT authentication work properly, a nightly version of prosody should be installed (at least 607, which was released on 05-Jan-2016). Is it safe to use this nightly version in production? why can't we use the latest stable version of prosody ?

Btw, I tested JWT authentication on my testing platform and it's working fine.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,
Hamza

Hi,

I'm not sure about jwt and its requirement to use prosody-trunk, but
currently meet.jit.si uses prosody trunk and runs just fine. You can
check the version by opening two tabs on meet.jit.si, open the console
on one of them and filter logs with 'version'.
Not sure whether the changes required for jwt had made it to 0.10, but
some of the other prosody modules depends on trunk, there is also a
patch about all moderators and kick which can be applied only to
trunk.

Hi Damian,

Thanks for the detailed answer.
I will use Prosody trunk nightly build 747 in production and I'll start testing 0.10

Best regards,
Hamza

The code base of 0.10 and trunk are different, especially the muc module.

Hi, Khait.

I'm not sure what the Prosody Trunk version is, but at least in Debian
Jessie the latest stable version of Prosody seems to be 0.10.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Ah, I thought that since you were talking about version 0.10, maybe the
stable 0.10 version could work. Thanks for the observation.

Kind regards,
Daniel
