RTCIceServer.credential

Draft
This page is not complete.

I'm experimenting with structure for pages documenting members of dictionaries. Please contact sheppy with any feedback.

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The RTCIceServer dictionary's credential property is a string providing the credential to use when connecting to the described server. This is typically a password, key, or other secret.

This value is used when the RTCIceServer describes a TURN server.

Syntax

var iceServer = {
                  ...
                  credential = credential,
                  ...
                };

var credential = iceServer.credential;

iceServer.credential = newCredential;

Example

This example creates a new RTCPeerConnection which uses a TURN server at turnserver.example.org to negotiate connections. Logging into the TURN server uses the username "webrtc" and the creative password "turnpassword".

myPeerConnection = new RTCPeerConnection({
  iceServers: [
    {
      urls: "turn:turnserver.example.org",  // A TURN server
      username: "webrtc",
      credential: "turnpassword"
    }
  ]
});
