When I try to enter a url with jwt token while opening a room, token disappears from the url. Why?

I am trying to enable the jwt authentication on Docker self-hosted server. I changed the relevant env variables but whenever I try it does not work. I enter this to my url bar:

“{my_ıp_address}/{port_no}/arbitrary_room_name?jwt={token}”

But when the page fully loads, the url goes back to this:

“{my_ıp_address}/{port_no}/arbitrary_room_name”

Why?

Hi @codertryer, this is intended to make the url look cleaner.
And also if the user copy paste the URL, this make sure that he doesn’t share the token, which would be a security issue.
But if the token is correct, it will be taken into account for sure.

Oh okay, thank you :slight_smile: Makes sense
