Difference of participants numbers

Why are numbers of participants differ between following APIs?

I remember that these values used to meet the same.
Have there been any changes in the specifications?


API Endpoint/s?

How To Reproduce

  1. Call API “https://api.zoom.us/v2/metrics/meetings”.
  2. Get “uuid” and “participants” of a meeting.
  3. Call API “https://api.zoom.us/v2/metrics/meetings/{uuid}/participants”.
  4. Get “total_records”.
  5. Compare “participants” and “total_records”.

Could you please reply to this question?

Hi @osawa.yuta the endpoints you shared return different data context.

The first, https://api.zoom.us/v2/metrics/meetings is showing participants across all meetings under the account that have not expired.

The second, https://api.zoom.us/v2/metrics/meetings/{meetingId}/participants is sharing the records for a specific meetingId/uuid.

What information or field are you trying to validate? Participants or total record?

Hi Gianni.
Endpoint https://api.zoom.us/v2/metrics/meetings has “meetings” field,
and every meetings in “meetings” field have “participants”_(1) field and “uuid” field.

I chose some meetings, and call endpoint https://api.zoom.us/v2/metrics/meetings/{meetingId}/participants with “uuid”.
The response has “total_records”_(2) field. And the field indicate number of the meeting participants.

I compared “participants”(1) and “total_records”(2) in some specific meetings.
But they are not same.

Hi Gianni.

Please let me know what you think about above my response.
