How can I receive meeting id by link?

Hi all!
I have a question: If I have one of those urls from user:

  1. https://xxxxx.zoom.us/j/12345678
    or
  2. https://xxxxx.zoom.us/my/myownnickname

Do I understand correct, that in first case number after “/j/”, here is equals 12345678, is always meeting id?
And how I can receive meeting id in second case?

And just extra question: do we have some article about all possible formats of links to meeting, or only those 2 exists? Thanks!

Hey @coderast ,

Good question! To clarify, the number followed by /j/ is the meeting ID.

We have two kinds of urls—one for participants to join, and one for hosts to start the meeting. These are the join_url and start_url, respectively.

These URLs are returned by our Create Meeting and GET Meeting API endpoints.

Let me know if this helps to clarify—thanks!
