Meeting Bot

Can I need a special account to see the document?

Thank you for your help!

Thanks Sanae. Looks like you’re looking at the docs for the platform beta program. Docs are available here: Zoom Developer Docs

Thank you for your reply.
I know I can see the docs here:Overview of Zoom Apps

I’m interested in Meeting bot in Zoom Apps, which seems to be referred here:Meeting bot
How can I see the docs of the platform beta program?

Thank you!

Hi Sanae and thanks! You shouldn’t need to see the beta docs - they are effectively deprecated now, becase we have the Zoom Developer Docs! (see my link above). I was just looking at the url in your original post - your ‘Meeting Bot’ link url is for the outdated beta docs. I hope that helps!

Thank you for your quick response! I appreciate it.

I understand the beta docs are outdated and I don’t need to see them.

In that case, I have another question. In Zoom Apps, is there any way to create a meeting recording bot?
There is a Q&A regarding it. A developer questioned about the way to create a meeting recording bot and Zoom staff mentioned that a new feature Zoom Apps will be released soon.
Creating a meeting recording bot

I’m researching the way to create a meeting recording bot. If you have any advise, please let me know.

Thank you!

@sanae.sometaya You can find the document on meeting bots here.

I’ve also added it back to that article. Let me know if that helps.

Thank you! This document is very helpful:)

I have one more question.

Are there any other raw data Meeting bot can obtain except raw audio data and raw video data? Especially, we are interested in real-time data that “who is speaking now”.

I appreciate your help!

@sanae.sometaya Awesome! I’m glad to hear that was useful.

Try using the onActiveSpeakerChange event to determine the current speaker.

Thank you for your quick and helpful response!

I have a few more questions for meeting bots.

This link Window Raw Data (zoom.us) said like below and that confuses me.
Note that local recording is disabled when raw data recording is enabled.
## Prerequisites
-Local recording permission for the current user

  1. Are local recordings required?
    When we use meeting bots, should we use local recordings? In our company, we use only cloud recordings and the setting of local recordings is disable at account level. In that case, we can’t use meeting bots?

  2. Are local or cloud recordings stored after the meeting?
    When we access raw recording data using meeting bots, can we still get local or cloud recording data after the meeting?

Thank you for your clarification!


Yes, you would want to enable the Local Recording setting at the account level.

Local Recordings are disabled but Cloud Recording would still work.

I hope that helps!

Thanks a lot!

Are there any other way to access raw audio data using cloud recordings, not local recordings?

Because we are a big global company and we are not allowed to use local recordings in a global policy. Therefore, we can’t use this way: Window Raw Data (zoom.us).

Our requirement is
-We’d like to get audio data per person in real time or at any timing.
I understand that we can get audio data per person using API when a cloud recording completes. However, we’d like to get it even during the meeting.

Our restriction is
-The setting of local recording is disable at account level.

I really appreciate your continuous support! Thanks in advance.

@sanae.sometaya Thanks for explaining your use case here. I can definitely see how that’s a blocker for your team.

I’ve set a reminder to bring this up at our next team meeting to see if it’s possible to have separate permission created for in-meeting raw AV data.

Thanks a lot!! I really appreciate your help!

Hi, is the local recording option needed to be enabled only on meeting host or on all the members of a meeting?

@njain4_be19 Only the meeting host

I have some questions here about the meeting Bots.

  1. Can we make the bot join a call and get access to raw data of a meeting created by people other than the users?
    (I would like to know if we can make the meeting bot join any call and get access to the raw data of the meeting).

Hi @mohit.m :wave: Meeting bots can be used by a meeting owner/host to grant recording access to a client application. Using a local recording token, meeting bots can access raw video and audio data.

Can a participant generate local recording token if he is given the recording permission in the meeting?

That API must be called by the host of the meeting
