Some or all of the below information will be requested if it isn’t supplied; for fastest response please provide as much as you can :heart:

Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): 22.1.1 (via snap)
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Ubuntu 20.04

The issue you are facing:
Enable the bundled matterbridge, connect the matterbridge to a matrix room on If I type a message on the NC-Talk side it shows up in the matrix room (via the Element app) as [nctalk] “example message”. However, if I type a message into the matrix room (via the Element app), then nothing shows up on the NC-Talk side. I expected a message to be shows by bridge-bot.

I have used two different room settings, the public and the “internal room address” Both had the same effect.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Install and enable the bundled matterbridge app
  2. Enable matterbridge for a room, add a new matrix bridge
  3. Set the matrix room and login details
  4. Send test message from the NC talk room (and see it appear in the matrix room)
  5. Post a message in the room (see nothing appear in the NC talk room)
