Create Meeting v2 API - add attendees / participants


Hey Guys, I am trying to create an instant meeting with the v2 API and actually add a list of attendees at the same time. I see the option to add meeting registrants but I am not clear on how an attendee vs registrant differs and whether the later is only designed for recurring meetings.

Any pointers appreciated.



Hello, i’m working on the same feature i think. I need to only allow joining users with a certain Email and disable the Join directly fom the Meeting ID. I don’t know much about attendee vs registrant but I tried to add a registrant via API but i’m getting this error:

Client error: POST [{meeting\_id}/registrants]({meeting_id}/registrants`) resulted in a 400 Bad Request response:
{“code”:200,“message”:“Only available for Paid user: {id of admin user registered on my zoom account}”}

Do you have any idea on the matter?

Thank you!


Can it be that i need a Pro plan? I’m on Free plan now.


@Cam, if you want to use meeting registration feature, please create a scheduled meeting or a recurring meeting with fixed time.
Attendee - The person who has attended the meeting.
Registrant - The person who has registered the meeting.


Unfortunately the answer given is unclear, and I believe inaccurate. I’ll try to clarify based on what I know about Webinars.

Answer given was:
     Attendee - The(sic) person who has attended the meeting.   
     Registrant - The(sic) person who has registered the meeting. 

A registrant is a person who has “requested” or “registered” an intent to attend a meeting.  Registrants can be automatically allowed, or manually allowed/denied via the API and the Web UI (and meeting configuration).

A registrant who is “allowed” is an attendee  and will have a unique link to join the meeting/webinar.  Accepted registrants can be automatically sent email reminders with a unique attendance link. After a meeting has ended, Attendees include those who actually attended, and those who missed the meeting. Emails can be sent separately to these two categories.

It’s actually more complicated than that, however, as there is also the notion of " Users" ( and I don’t understand the distinctions. Users have passwords.
