API call to inject messages into the chat window #1660

Originally reported on Google Code with ID 905

Add an API call to inject messages into the chat window.

This would enable tighter integration, such as enabling a 3rd party application to
notify users that the meeting is about it end.  Clicking on a link could extend the
meeting another 1 hour (and bill for it).

The format of the API would be

  sendChatMesssage( meetingID, message)

It would be perfect to be able to send to a particular user, or group, such as "presenter
only" or "audience/client only", etc.

Is this feature available in BigBlueButton now? To inject messages to group chat message or private chat?

There is another open issue on this here: #6310
That one is for a popup message. If you search you will find other discussions on this.

Thank you for the response. Any idea when this functionality will be available?

@sartaj-m - I am not with the core team so I cannot answer you on timing. I was merely suggesting that you can find more info by searching, because the current issue you are commenting on is very old and there are newer threads.

So, this can be done today crudely if you connect to redis, no how to authenticate as a user, and send a message in redis. Can also monitor chat messages, and subscribe to them. Look at redis-cli and type some messages. have done a few of these in ruby in past. would require you connect directly to redis or creating custom api endpoint on bbb server to pass messages.

Someone created a workaround by embedding an external chat client instead of using the BBB chat component. (link)

So what we did is to disable the BBB chat panel and replace it with a new iFrame based component that opened an embedded Matrix chat client.

We created a node.js-based service that can redirect chat messages from a BigBlueButton Meeting to a Matrix chat room and vice versa. It can also be used as a REST API to send messages to the BBB chat from the outside.

Hi @mklampfer -- very cool! Would you like to give a 25 minute presentation on our work at the upcoming BigBlueButton world conference later next month? See https://world.bigbluebutton.org/?
