Like to request one of my friend to join the forum,
I am not able to find the link to add him
can you please share the link with me
He just needs to register by himself. There's a signup button on top of the page https://discuss.elastic.co/
yes, he can join himself, but there is also an option to send invite to interested users who want to join the forum.
Like if you do, you get some appreciation from the forum and get badge
I figured it out, how to add.
Go to profile and and then click "invites" and there you can add users
Adding the screen shot for reference for other users
I was not aware of this feature.
