Description

Hi:

I wanted to test the new features coming along in BBB 2.3 & 2.4, so that I installed a new server with BBB 2.4. Everything from the BBB side did run smoothly, but the integration with tiki is not fully working as expected. I mean, after connectinng the tiki to bbb 2.4 server (providing the new url and bbb salt in the tiki control panel), I can see the recordings listed in the plugin bigbluebutton parsed content, but I'm never able to create a new meeting (when clicking to the create button shown by plugin bbb).

I had a look at the bbb documentation, and I see that some changes are reported to the API in bbb 2.3 and 2.4.:

Updated in 2.3:

    create - Renamed keepEvents to meetingKeepEvents, removed joinViaHtml5, added endWhenNoModeratorDelayInMinutes
    getDefaultConfigXML obsolete, not used in HTML5 client
    setConfigXML obsolete, not used in HTML5 client

Updated in 2.4 (under development):

    getDefaultConfigXML Removed, not used in HTML5 client
    setConfigXML Removed, not used in HTML5 client
    create - Added meetingLayout, activityReportTracking


I had a look i Tiki21 LTS, for instance, and I see that there are references to getDefaultConfigXML and setConfigXML in lib/bigbluebuttonlib.php

(...)
173:		$content = $this->performRequest('getDefaultConfigXML', ['random' => '1'], false);
(...)
192: 		$client = $tikilib->get_http_client($this->getBaseUrl('/api/setConfigXML.xml') . '?');
(...)


Could this be the reason why tiki is not creating the new room in the bbb-2.4-powered server?

If that hypothesis is confirmed, then we might hit a problem in the tiki community in the afew months whenever Fred Dixon and the BBB team upgrades the bbb instance we use in the "Tiki Roundtable Meetings" and TAG meetings, etc.

I can share the details of my bbb2.4 test server (url and salt) with any dev willing to debug and fix this issue.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
