Federation allows for an unlimited number of workspaces to communicate with each other. Federating a workspace makes it visible to other workspaces over the federated network, thus making communication with other Federation-enabled servers possible.
To access Federation on your workspace,
  • Navigate to Administration > Workspace > Settings > Federation.
Rocket.Chat provides Federation using the Matrix Protocol and the Rocket.Chat Federation Network.
Rocket.Chat basic federation is deprecated from version 6.0. Thus, we strongly recommend using Matrix Bridge.
