Invite only features

Invite only features require a user to be invited to use and accept an invitation for access to feature previews. Users can create invitation codes to share with other users.

How it works

Invite only features require an invitation code.

A user with an invite only feature code can decide whether they want to accept the invitation to add the feature to their own tailnet.

An invitation code can be redeemed up to some maximum allowed times and has no time expiration.

An example of an invite only feature is Tailscale Funnel alpha.

You need to be an Owner, Admin, or IT Admin of a tailnet in order to create or accept an invitation code, as well as copy an invitation code from the admin console.
