This module allows delegating authorization questions (role assignment and role policies) to another host within prosody.

The primary use of this is for a group of virtual hosts to use a common authorization database, for example to allow a MUC component to grant administrative access to an admin on a corresponding user virtual host.


The following example will make all role assignments for local and remote JIDs from domain.example effective on groups.domain.example:

VirtualHost "domain.example"

Component "groups.domain.example" "muc"
    authorization = "delegate"
    authz_delegate_to = "domain.example"


With the plugin installer in Prosody 0.12 you can use:

sudo prosodyctl install --server= mod_authz_delegate
