How do I start a meeting with api created custCreate user as the host who can start the meeting without logging in

I want to create a meeting where I will provide a user the start url who can then start the meeting as host without login. The user is a basic user created using the custCreate option

I do get the start_url. But on opening it in an incognito tab for testing purposes, I’m asked to login to be able to start the meeting. I wish that the user be able to start the meeting without logging in

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Which Endpoint/s?
APIs are working fine and I’m getting response

Hi @gigzoom,

How long are you waiting to start the meeting from when the start_url was generated?

Can you confirm that the user was successfully created as a custCreate user as well?


Hi Will,
I’m starting the meeting 1 minute after the request get initiated
As a temporary workaround I have made users join before host and disabled waiting room
However I would have preferred for the user to start hosting without logging in

Hey @gigzoom,

Thanks for confirming—if you’re still seeing this issue after scheduling meetings under a custCreate user, can you please share the following with us at

  • the start_url that was used
  • The user ID or email of the host

This will help us to further investigate,
