Lobby/Waiting Room

I’m too… waiting for a “Waiting Room”> I’m Head of IT in a Hospital and used this tool to conduct Dermatology clinics online while patient and the doctor in safe.

I encountered with problem when multiple patients are connecting which eliminate the privacy of the patients.

Therefore, Now I am looking for something else like Jisti which should be easy to user.

PLEASE BE KIND ENOUGH TO ADD THIS FEATURE< “WAITING ROOM” ASAP.
Bye

if you cant wait, you could create custom app that implement jitsi external app. there you can hide room url and implement ‘waiting room’ that ask/poll host approval

Can you be a little more specific on this idea. I am fairly new to the project.

Thanks

Hi Damencho,
Has there been any updates to the waiting room rollout? Do you have a timeframe as to when you may expect this to be deployed?
Thanks!

Probably next week will be in master, and in a week or two on meet.jit.si

I was just searching for “Waiting Room” in the forum and found this discussion.

Is there an update on the waiting room function? I know this from Zoom and I think it is a great feature.

is this already in master? and where is the instruction to add ? how can I implement this from lib-jitsi-meet?

This is already in master. To enable it here is how: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/pull/6621/commits/273f357131fa629bb11e9b2e429fb118ae9f3af2
The functionality is in lib-jitsi-meet

Thanx for the reply <3

Will it be possible to toggle lobby via an IFrame API command?

Wondering if something like this will be possible:

api.executeCommand('enableLobby');

This is currently not implemented. Any help is welcome.

Is it possible to enable it via config or interfaceconfig overwrite parameter?

No, loading a Prosody module is necessary for that, in such cases the required configuration is done in the Prosody config file.

Apologies, my question was indeed vague; I meant, when enabled in prosody, instead of an moderator manually enabling it for a specific room, is it also possible to enable it for a room with a config or interface parameter?

I think not. Generally there is nothing in Jitsi-meet to setup special characteristics for rooms.

Is this feature only available for authenticated deployments? I made the changes to my prosody config but I am not seeing the lobby UI anywhere. Using the latest master branch.

surely not, I just posted a step by step configuration for the authenticated case because this case was not covered in @damencho original message. If you follow these original instructions (and make sure that you have prosody 11) it should work.
