BUG getting personal room information does not include start_time

Description
Documentation lists start_time as part of the response of GET /meetings/{meetingId}, however fetching a live personal meeting does not include this. I have not tested with other types of meetings.

Error
Response does not match documentation

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
Oauth

Which Endpoint/s?
/meetings/{meetingId}

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Start a personal meeting
  2. GET /meetings/{personal meeting id}
  3. Be sad that start_time does not exist.

Conflicting documentation here https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/api-reference/zoom-api/meetings/meeting for reference.

Hey @matt,

Is your personal meeting an instant meeting? Has it been used to schedule a meeting?

Thanks,

Hmmmmm, I don’t think it has ever been used to schedule anything. So most likely just an instant meeting.

Hey @matt,

For instant meetings since they are not scheduled, they do not have a start_time.

We will make the docs more clear, CC @shrijana.g

Thanks,

Thanks @tommy!

Out of curiosity, is there a recommended way to get the actual start time of a meeting if we miss the meeting.started webhook?

Looking through the api documentation, I haven’t found a good method to get that info.

Cheers!

Hey @matt,

Yes, use the reports or dashboard endpoints. :slight_smile:

Thanks,
Tommy
