How to limit user numbers in channels

Is it possible to limit the number of users that are allowed to be in a channel?

It’s not possible to set a numeric limit on how many users can access a channel, although it is possible to restrict who can access the channel via token authentication.

Token permissions can be set to limit access to the channel for the required users, by setting your auth server to only allow permissions on a channel to certain client IDs as specified in this article.
