Our JWT app sets up meetings and receives host links and join links.
This has worked flawlessly for the past two years, but recently the host links do not work. The meeting is set up as expected in the account, but when the host clicks the host link, it opens the Zoom app and asks the host to sign in (which defeats the purpose of the host link).
Thanks for reaching out to the Zoom Developer forum! I am happy to help here!
Could you please confirm if you are creating the meetings via API?
When you talk about the host links are you referring to the join_url link?
I am referring to the start_url. We are getting links back from Zoom that don’t start the meeting. This worked at all times in the past 2 years but has stopped working consistently as of last week.
We now see that depending on which zooom email account is used (all are within the master account and using the same JWT app), some of the start URL’s we receive are 449 characters (those don’t work) and some are 452 characters (those do work). The accounts are in one group and the settings are identical.
We are trying to find out why some links are shorter and don’t work, and others are longer and do work
Here’s an example of what happens. We request two meetings through the same API, using email addresses configured identically under the same account. One start_url launches the meeting (first attempt in the video using zoom account haa7…), the other does not (second attempt using zoom account haa6…).
Nick from Zoom has been very helpful and escalated this to engineering so I don’t want to mess anything up by duplicating efforts, but since we don’t have a solution yet, if you have any ideas I’d love to hear them.
Here is my problem…
We are a large college, every day there are many meetings with different lecturers who change.
Every day we, like DarryI, create a personal API link for each session for the lecturer.
It’s already 7 days and there is no progress regarding this issue. Soon everybody using zoom API will have that problem, just wait for the zoom client upgrade. Furthermore, downgrade is not the solution or even workaround. We can’t say to thousands of our clients to downgrade the application.
Is there any update about this issue? It’s been more than 10 days already since the problem started and quite many days of silence from zoom support
Could someone share the status of the issue and the expected ETA for the fix?
