  41. <p>&xep0045; defines the protocol for groupchat in XMPP. In some situations, the room creator may want to request a unique room name before attempting to create the room (e.g., to avoid the possibility of a room conflict). Naturally, one way to do so is for the creator's client to generate a globally unique identifier, for example as defined in &rfc4122;. Another way is for the client to ask the MUC service for a unique room ID (which the service will thus reserve for that user).</p>

  43. <section1 topic='Protocol' anchor='proto'>
  44. <p>The room creator requests a unique room name by sending an IQ-get to the service itself, containing an empty &lt;unique/&gt; element qualified by the '' namespace:</p>

  46. <iq from='crone1@shakespeare.lit/desktop'
  47. id='unique1'
  48. to='chat.shakespeare.lit'
  49. type='get'>
  50. <unique xmlns=''/>
  51. </iq>
  52. ]]></example>
  53. <p>If the service supports this feature, it SHOULD return a unique room name as the XML character data of the &lt;unique/&gt; element (but not create the room):</p>

  61. </unique>
  62. </iq>
  63. ]]></example>
  64. <p>The service MAY refuse to return a unique room name to entities that are not entitled to create rooms, entities that have sent an excessive number of requests for unique room names, etc.</p>
  65. <p>The service MAY use any algorithm that ensures the creation of a room name that will be permanently unique in the context of the service (e.g., a cryptographic hash of the requesting JID, datetime, and random salt), or simply use a UUID as defined by <cite>RFC 4122</cite>.</p>
  66. <p>The room creator would then use the XML character data of the &lt;unique/&gt; element as the node identifier portion of the room JID it requests:</p>
