Does 'meeting_invitees' in Meeting API send emails?

Is the ‘meeting_invitees’ list in the settings option not supposed to send emails to the invitees? It did not send invitation mails in my case and I am new to the API so not sure if this is expected behavior or I am doing something wrong. The code used is as follows:

import requests
import json

account_id = "MyAccountId"
client_id = "MyClientId"
client_secret = "MyClientSecret"

get_token_url = f"{account_id}"
resp =, auth=(client_id, client_secret))
resp_json = resp.json()
# print(resp_json)

create_meeting_url = ""
headers = {
    "Authorization": f"Bearer {resp_json['access_token']}",
    "content-type": "application/json"
meeting_details = {
    "topic": "Demo meeting",
    "type": 2,
    "start_time": "2022-10-20T22: 15: 00",
    "duration": "45",
    "timezone": "Asia/Calcutta",
    "agenda": "To test invitees",
    "settings": {
        "meeting_invitees": [
            {"email": ""},
            {"email": ""}

resp =

resp_json = resp.json()

I found some other discussions related to this issue (like this, this and this) but didn’t get whether this is the expected behavior or not. It would be very helpful if someone could tell me about this. Also, I am using a free account.

Hi @Adbhut ,

That value is just a list of the meeting’s invitees. It does not generate an email, though all participants are emailed.

You may wish to use to take a look at meeting registrants API

Let us know if you have any questions!

Thanks for the reply. I have a followup question.

What is the difference between participants, invitees and registrants?
