How to enable whitelist mode?

How can I enable the new whitelist mode? I can’t find it in the admin UI nor in the environment file.

Should be under the admin dashboard (can’t check atm)?

Hi @saper, the admin dashboard shows the status of the whitelist mode, whether it’s enabled or disabled, but you can’t change the mode from there. At least I can’t figure out how to do it.

its an environment variable - not configurable from the UI.

Once enabled, you’ll then see a button to whitelist domains in the UI under Moderation --> Federation

Thanks! I found this blog post which explains a little bit more about this feature and which variable is used: Mastodon 3.0 in-depth: New APIs, deployment options, and admin settings - Official Mastodon Blog

Variable: WHITELIST_MODE=true
