Properties

Name

Enter the channel name here.

Name
Enter the channel name in this field. The name has to comply with the restriction imposed by the server you are connected to.

Description

Password

Enter the channel password here.

Password
This field allows you to easily set and change the password of a channel. In the background it uses Mumble's access tokens feature. To allow more fine grained and powerful access control directly, use ACLs and groups instead (Advanced configuration has to be checked to be able to see these settings).

Check to create a temporary channel.

Temporary
When checked the channel created will be marked as temporary. This means when the last player leaves it the channel will be automatically deleted by the server.

Temporary

Channel positioning facility value

Position
This value enables you to change the way Mumble arranges the channels in the tree. A channel with a higher Position value will always be placed below one with a lower value and the other way around. If the Position value of two channels is equal they will get sorted alphabetically by their name.

Position

Groups

Group

List of groups

Group
These are all the groups currently defined for the channel. To create a new group, just type in the name and press enter.

Add new group

Remove selected group

Remove
This removes the currently selected group. If the group was inherited, it will not be removed from the list, but all local information about the group will be cleared.

Remove

Inherit group members from parent

Inherit
This inherits all the members in the group from the parent, if the group is marked as Inheritable in the parent channel.

Inherit

Make group inheritable to sub-channels

Inheritable
This makes this group inheritable to sub-channels. If the group is non-inheritable, sub-channels are still free to create a new group with the same name.

Inheritable

Group was inherited from parent channel

Inherited
This indicates that the group was inherited from the parent channel. You cannot edit this flag, it's just for information.

Inherited

Members

Inherited members

Contains the list of members added to the group by this channel.

Members
This list contains all members that were added to the group by the current channel. Be aware that this does not include members inherited by higher levels of the channel tree. These can be found in the Inherited members list. To prevent this list to be inherited by lower level channels uncheck Inheritable or manually add the members to the Excluded members list.

Contains a list of members whose group membership will not be inherited from the parent channel.

Excluded members
Contains a list of members whose group membership will not be inherited from the parent channel.

Contains the list of members inherited by other channels.

Inherited members
Contains the list of members inherited by the current channel. Uncheck Inherit to prevent inheritance from higher level channels.

Add member to group

Type in the name of a user you wish to add to the group and click Add.

Remove member from group

Type in the name of a user you wish to remove from the group and click Add.

Exclude

Excluded members

ACL

Active ACLs

List of entries

This shows all the entries active on this channel. Entries inherited from parent channels will be show in italics.
ACLs are evaluated top to bottom, meaning priority increases as you move down the list.

Inherit ACL of parent?

This sets whether or not the ACL up the chain of parent channels are applied to this object. Only those entries that are marked in the parent as "Apply to sub-channels" will be inherited.

Inherit ACLs

Move entry up

This moves the entry up in the list. As entries are evaluated in order, this may change the effective permissions of users. You cannot move an entry above an inherited entry, if you really need that you'll have to duplicate the inherited entry.

Up

Move entry down

This moves the entry down in the list. As entries are evaluated in order, this may change the effective permissions of users.

Down

Add new entry

This adds a new entry, initially set with no permissions and applying to all.

Add

Remove entry

This removes the currently selected entry.

Remove

Context

Entry should apply to sub-channels.

This makes the entry apply to sub-channels of this channel.

Applies to sub-channels

Entry should apply to this channel.

This makes the entry apply to this channel.

Applies to this channel

User/Group

Group this entry applies to

This controls which group of users this entry applies to.
Note that the group is evaluated in the context of the channel the entry is used in. For example, the default ACL on the Root channel gives Write permission to the admin group. This entry, if inherited by a channel, will give a user write privileges if he belongs to the admin group in that channel, even if he doesn't belong to the admin group in the channel where the ACL originated.
If a group name starts with '!', its membership is negated, and if it starts with '~', it is evaluated in the channel the ACL was defined in, rather than the channel the ACL is active in.
If a group name starts with '#', it is interpreted as an access token. Users must have entered whatever follows the '#' in their list of access tokens to match. This can be used for very simple password access to channels for non-authenticated users.
If a group name starts with '$', it will only match users whose certificate hash matches what follows the '$'.
A few special predefined groups are:
all - Everyone will match.
auth - All authenticated users will match.
sub,a,b,c - User currently in a sub-channel minimum a common parents, and between b and c channels down the chain. See the website for more extensive documentation on this one.
in - Users currently in the channel will match (convenience for 'sub,0,0,0').
out - Users outside the channel will match (convenience for '!sub,0,0,0').
Note that an entry applies to either a user or a group, not both.

User ID

User this entry applies to

This controls which user this entry applies to. Just type in the user name and hit enter to query the server for a match.
