thanks for creating the Jitsi Meet tool. It’s very useful, works well, and it was easy to set up. Unfortunately, authentication seems to be a lot harder to configure the way that I want it than I initially thought.
Basically, I want to continue to use the anonymous login mode that is configured after installation, where anybody can join a conference room if they know the link, but I would like to restrict the list of possible names for conferences rooms. That means anyone who knows the name of an existent chat room (that I will create in advance as an admin) can join without providing login details, but unless they know the name of a chatroom it’s impossible to create a room. This is meant to prevent abuse of our system for purposes not related to our service.
I found out that by setting the
restrict_room_creation for Prosody, I can restrict the creation of rooms to admins. Is there a command line tool that I can run to automatically create a chat room and send its name to the users who I would like to invite to join?
Many thanks & best wishes,
