Password protected public group

Hi@all,

For individual projects I would like to create one public group each in kopano-meet. However, these should be password protected.

In addition, each of the participants should be able to open the group at any time without a registered user opening the room.

Is this possible?

Hi @pixel,

at the moment it is not possible to secure rooms with an additional password. Instead we recommend to use long randomly generated room names.

This is possible, but not exposed as a configuration setting in the app settings. Since Meet is an app based on docker-compose one can however easily extend/override individual parts of the app. The configuration setting to modify is https://github.com/Kopano-dev/kwmserver/blob/master/scripts/kwmserverd.cfg#L91 and for this service settings are read from the environment of the container. This can be achieved by placing a files called docker-compose.override.yml needs to be created in /var/lib/univention-appcenter/apps/kopano-meet/compose with the following content:

version: "2.0"

services:
  kopano_kwmserver:
    environment:
    - allow_guest_only_channels = yes

afterwards run docker-compose up -d in the same folder and now guests user are able to join public groups without a registered user present.
