How to get live participants of join before host/in waiting room?

As our system integrated with Zoom API, we would like to know whether we can get the live participants info or count be the host joining the meeting.

I tried below API

but it only updates when the host has entered the meeting zoom, we want to know the count of the participant who is waiting to join the meeting before host joining.

beside using webhook, is there any other way we can do this??

Hey @lck627,

Thank you for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum. Currently, there isn’t an API to determine how many users are in the waiting room or have joined before the host.

Instead, as you indicated, you will want to use the meeting.participant_put_in_waiting_room webhook.

If you would like this feature to be considered for a future release, I recommend posting in the #feature-requests category.

Thanks,
Max
