Can you start a meeting without the host?

I want to schedule a meeting where anyone on my account can start the meeting as a host. Anyone outside of my organisation can attend the meeting only when a host has started. I don’t want to list all of the users in my account as alternate hosts within the API. Is this possible?

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

Which Endpoint/s?
POST meeting

Hi @croyle3,

Good question.

To clarify, a single designated host is necessary to have a meeting—however, you can set the following setting so that users can join without the host present:

In the Meeting Create/Update APIs, you can leverage this field:
"join_before_host": true

Let me know if this helps—thanks!
