Can I get past meeting data if the meeting does not have a host present?

If I create a meeting via the API and send only join urls to people will I still be able to retrieve past meeting data via the API even though there is no “host”, per se? Or does there have to be a host to get past meeting data? Are there any other problems I may run into if I have meetings with only participants an no hosts?


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

Which Endpoint/s?
I want to hit endpoints such as /past_meetings/#{params[:meeting_uuid]}/participants and /past_meetings/#{params[:meeting_uuid]} on past meetings and store the data.

How To Reproduce (If applicable)

Screenshots (If applicable)

Additional context
This was an issue with a service other than Zoom, so I just want to make sure I won’t have the same problem.

Hi @itsryan,

In order for a meeting to be returned by the /past_meetings endpoint, it must have been started and ended by the meeting host to appear as a past instance. Until a meeting is started by the host, it’s considered upcoming/scheduled.
