Restrict starting video call using Jitsi


I would like to restrict the access to an enabled Jitsi installation, but I can’t find any suitable permission.

So, is it possible to restrict strating a video call to a moderator, admin, ?

Hi @klepptor

You can enable either with LDAP authentication and normal plain password authentication. You can go thru this for LDAP authentication -

And for plain text authentication you can use prosody - check this link -

Hi @saigop,

thx for your reply! So, as I understand, there is no possibility inside Rocket.Chat to restrict starting a video call!?

That’s too bad… :cry:

Isn’t this a feature worth requesting? What do you think?

Hi @klepptor

Inside RC you can authenticate via JWT authentication, its a global authentication. But I haven’t tried that.

I believe the only things supported currently are allowing to start calls like with jwt.

I don’t think room or role level permission exists yet. Sounds like a good PR or feature request
