Hey @chiheb.hmida,

Thank you for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum. This is a known issue that we plan to resolve in the future. Essentially, the error in the dialog does not match the issue. This happens when the meeting has not yet started and you use a role of 0 to join the meeting.

In order to start the meeting, please use a role of 1.

Let me know if that helps. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks,
Max

Hello maxM,
Thank you for your quick answer, I have changed the role to 1 and I got another error in the console.

  1. {method: “join”, status: false, result: “Not allow to start webinar from web.”, errorMessage: undefined, errorCode: 1}

  2. errorCode: 1

  3. errorMessage: undefined

  4. method: “join”

  5. result: “Not allow to start webinar from web.”

  6. status: false

  7. proto: Object

Hey @chiheb.hmida,

Thank you for providing additional information. You should be able to start a Webinar from the Web SDK and so far it seems like you’re on the right track. Make sure that the userEmail you’re using matches the email of the host.

We have more information on starting a Webinar as a host here:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Max
