Add webinar status to API response from /webinars/{webinarId}

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
It’s not possible to get the webinar status using the API without an admin account. See the support topic How to get webinar status?.

Describe the solution you’d like
Add status to the response from /webinars/{webinarId}.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Using webhooks with the Webinar started event is a potential workaround, but my application currently doesn’t use webhooks so the implementation would require a lot of work.

I would like to have a follow-up on this request. I have the exact same problem and look forward to adding this request. After 5 months without response, is it a feature that you would like to add on Zoom API in a near futur or should I use something else for check if a webinar is started or not? Thank you!

I would also like to see this feature implented. We really need the status value for a webinar. I don’t currently see how the dashboard api can tell a webinar is active.
