We’re building an integration between our platform and Zoom. Users are already registered on our side and will not have Zoom accounts, so I have opted to created a separate join URL using the “Create Meeting’s Invite Links” API.
I was able to create the invite links successfully, but I don’t understand how to use the Web SDK to join the room using the Web SDK. I am using the “Component” integration. I need to create a signature to authenticate, but the only parameter in the join URL is a mysterious “wp” key. I was unable to find any documentation regarding the meaning of this value. It doesn’t appear to be the required signature itself.
How can I use an invite link to join a meeting using the Web SDK?
Note that I am not creating registrants for this integration.
Hi @msoliter, welcome to the Zoom dev community
The web Meeting SDK can be used to join meetings, but not necessarily using invite links. When you create a meeting using the create meeting API, you get an ID and passcode that you will pass in when you join a meeting in your web app.
The invitation links (or process to join) would be handled by your application. That process might look something like:
- Create a meeting
- Send an invitation/notification to your users in your application
- User clicks “join meeting” in your application
- Meeting ID and passcode are used in your app in the .join() method to join the meeting.
Hi Michael, thanks for the response.
To clarify, I can handle the notion of an “invite” myself, completely, since I have access to the meeting’s ID and password. There’s no need to generate invite “links”, unless my application requires them, in which case I can just fetch the necessary parameters and pass them to .join() directly.
Is that correct?
That’s correct, you’ll handle all of this in your app
