Hey @prasanna8,

As it turns out, this is a know issue that we’re working on fixing. Apologies for the trouble—we’ll let you know once we have an update on resolving this! (CS-2192)

Thanks,
Will

HI @will.zoom,

Is there any target date for the release of this fix? This is actually a critical issue on our side.

Hey @lfrancia, @prasanna8,

With version 1.8.0, if the host gets disconnected, use the same host signature (passing in role 1) and they will rejoin the meeting as the Co-Host.

That being said, the currently functionality if the host gets disconnected, one of the participants will be assigned the Host. Once the original Host rejoins, they will be the Co-Host.

Thanks,
Tommy

Hi Tommy,

Thank you for the information. So in situation below, all will be hosts (User B will be main host, User A will be the co-host)?

  1. User A join as Host
  2. User B join as Guest
  3. User A left the meeting making User B as host
  4. User A rejoins the meeting

I want to get this point clear.
So, will they rejoin as a participant if they pass in any other signature than the same one they used to host the meeting(even if the new signature is designed to be host(role = 1)) ?

@tommy

I indicated why this new behavior introduced recently (not related to web SDK version) is not acceptable here, could you please have a look ?

Hey @prasanna8,

The current functionality is if you pass in role 1, they will become the co-host. If you pass in role 0 they will join as a participant.

Thanks,
Tommy

Hey @lfrancia,

Correct:

  1. User A join as Host
  2. User B join as Guest
  3. User A left the meeting making User B as host
  4. User A rejoins the meeting as a Co-Host

Thanks,
Tommy

Hey @nvivot,

I have responded to you in that thread.

Thanks,
Tommy

Hi @tommy,

Thank you for answering my question.

If all will be host, then this will really be a problem for us because it means that our clients (originally joined as guest) will be host while the original host will just become co-host. There are reasons why we set our clients as guests and not host.

I hope Zoom can find a better solution for this.

Lara

Hey @lfrancia,

We are currently working on a better solution. I will keep this thread updated on its development. :slight_smile:

Thanks,
Tommy
