Jitsi Plugin 1.1
The Jitsi plugin offers more functionality than using the generic service in the JCall:
- the name and photo are automatically filled in when the user joins the videoconference
- Connection tracking is done (who connected, when and for how long)
Jitsi module settings
The Jitsi module is pre-configured to work with the video conferencing service meet.jit.si. You don't have to make any settings if you want to use this service
If you want to use another Jitsi server you have to fill in the following properties:
- API URL
- URL Prefix
If this Jitsi server uses JWT authentication you must also fill in the following properties:
- JWT - Audience
- JWT - Issuer
- JWT - Secret
- JWT - Subject
The "URL Suffix" property allows you to add parameters to the connection URL. Check out the Jitsi Documentation for possible settings.
1.1, the list of users that are allowed to trigger or schedule a Jitsi call can be restricted using an ACL.
Declaring the Jitsi plugin as the default service
If you want the Jitsi service to be the default service to use, go to the JCall plugin properties and in the Video conference service property enter
The module offers the possibility to display the avatar of the JPlatform user in Jitsi. This feature requires that the Jitsi server is allowed to access certain resources of the JPlatform server (CORS). Specifically, the URI of the JPlatform server must be added to the
Access-Control-Allow-Originheader. Note that, as of now, this header is not filled in for the meet.jit.si domain.
