iOS start meeting and get meeting id

I Can successfully create an instant meeting using the iOS sdk. However, startmeeting does not return the id of the meeting. I need the meeting number in order to allow other users to join the meeting.

I tried creating a meeting item but not sure what that actually does? Does meeting item create a session on the Zoom servers?

If I pass a meeting id in startMeeting I get an error that the meeting doesn’t exist.

So how do I create a meeting and get the id of that meeting so that I can pass the I’d along and others can join?

Which version
Latest version of iOS sdk

  • OS: 12.3

Hi oderza,
Thanks for the post. Regarding your questions:

  1. The Start meeting does not return the id of the meeting - Yes, the start meeting response indicates whether the start meeting request was sent successfully or not.
  2. If you would like to get the meeting info of the ongoing meeting, we have a MobileRTCInviteHelper class that could help you(, we have examples in our demo app (
  3. If you have scheduled a meeting(which means not an instant meeting), you can also get that meeting info from API and pass to join meeting interface.

Hope this helps. Thanks!

Perfect, thank you. MobileRTCInviteHelper is exactly what I needed.
