NOTE: This module has been deprecated. Its functionality has been moved to other modules, see the mod_invites documentation for details.

This module allows admins and users to create invitations suitable for sharing to potential new users/contacts.

User invitations can be created through the “New Invite” ad-hoc command. An overview of the semantics and protocol can be found at

This module depends on mod_invites to actually create and store the invitation tokens.


To allow users to join your server through invitations, you must enable mod_register_ibr and set allow_registration = true, and then also set registration_invite_only = true to restrict registration.

Name Description Default
registration_invite_only Whether registration attempts without an invite token should be blocked true
allow_user_invites Whether existing users should be allowed to invite new users to register accounts true

Example: Invite-only registration

-- To allow invitation through a token, mod_register
allow_registration = true
registration_invite_only = true

Example: Open registration

This setup allows completely open registration, even without an invite token.

allow_registration = true
registration_invite_only = false

Invite creation permissions

To allow existing users of your server to send invitation links that allow new people to join your server, you can set allow_user_invites = true.

If you do not wish users to invite other users to create accounts on your server, set allow_user_invites = false. They will still be able to send contact invites, but new contacts will be required to register an account on a different server.


Users can use the “New Invite” ad-hoc command through their client.

Admins can create registration links using prosodyctl, e.g.

prosodyctl mod_easy_invite generate


0.11 and later.


With the plugin installer in Prosody 0.12 you can use:

sudo prosodyctl install --server= mod_easy_invite
