JWT token authentication Prosody plugin an Jicofo


I’ve set my Jitsi conference to use JWT token authentication Prosody plugin accrording to

I generate a JWT token, then provide it via ‘jwt’ parameter to the conference URL.
Everything seems to work as expected.

But there is another configuration option EXT_JWT for Jicofo server described here:

Can anyone clarify what the “org.jitsi.jicofo.auth.URL=EXT_JWT:jitsi-meet.example.com
config parameter is for, and how does this relate to the JWT token described earlier?


This is for something else and we haven’t used it, not sure anyone uses it, you should not set it. We may drop it at some point. It was briefly discussed here

Thanks for the quick response.
