I want to setup a local XMPP server, and I want each user to automatically to enter an important conference when they login, or at least get sent an invitations, but I can't figure out how.

Can I do this through the settings in ejabberd, or would this be a function in a different server?


This is controlled entirely by the client. The server can control which rooms are able to be auto-joined, with the autojoin attribute of the conference element element, but it's up to the XMPP client to actually do so.

Note that the default value for the autojoin attribute is false, but once you set that to true on the server, its entirely up to whatever client you're using to support auto-joining.

  • How i can config this. I can't find this on ejabberd.cfg, ejabberd admin or my xmpp client conference config. – Atterratio Feb 18 '15 at 12:57
  • This depends on the client, you need to check if it has the option to add a chatroom to bookmark when you join it. – Mickaël Rémond Jul 29 '15 at 10:45
