JWT Tokens Install Guide

I would really appreciate if someone can write a step-by-step guide up for getting JWT to work with jitsi.


Did you see below guide?

yes, i did. but for beginners like me its just flying over the head

what is the application ID? where do i get that

more over when i tried to

apt-get install jitsi-meet-tokens

i got this.

Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 jitsi-meet-tokens : Depends: prosody-trunk (>= 1nightly747) but it is not installable or
                              prosody-0.11 but it is not installable or
                              prosody (>= 0.11.2) but 0.10.0-1build1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

i have jitsi unstable latest version installed.

i got around updating prosody to .11x by adding prosody’s deb source list etc

So i was hoping that a step-by-step guide will be helpful for people like me



You are right, we need a more detailed Installation Guide, I am 45 days trying to install and configure JWT token authenticationcorrectly, but I found several problems. It seems that the community has no interest in providing this type of information. Unfortunately, the learning curve is big.

Rather, there is no enough manpower by the side of the development team to provide that information officially. They are simply full of tasks.

Thanks @KEYLETAL for the answer, I believe that’s it.

I used this guide to have a working Jitsi with token authentication enabled Docs/Jitsi Meet Installation.md at master · christiancuri/Docs

I have having same issue while installing jitsi-meet-tokens. Were you able to find the solution to this issue?

I haven’t tried it myself, but I’ve just found this guide that might help. I was hoping to try it later today.

Tested this tutorial it works when you replace the version of lus cjson with a newer one compatble with ubuntu 18.04 prosody stable apt lua 5.2 and jitsi unstable:
luarocks install lua-cjson 2.1.0-1
