Looking to create a Python Script that auto-admits people on Zoom API but unsure if the feature exists?

Basically the title but I am looking to create a script that can auto-accept people on my meeting whenever they come on, though one thing I am not sure of is if this API actually exists. I have been researching about this topic for a while now but have found nothing relevant to my question, best I could find was a post from last year March which asked if moving people from the waiting room to the live meeting was possible.

Thank you in advance

Hi @samjoshua,

Thanks for reaching out about this.

To clarify, are you trying to programmatically admit participants to a meeting? (Let me know if I’m misunderstanding)

If so, I should clarify that this is not possible. Currently, participants must join a meeting manually. However, you can share a join_url with participants to join, which can be retrieved for a meeting via our GET Meeting API:

Let me know if this helps to clarify,

Hey @will.zoom,

Thanks for your response regarding my question. Yes that indeed is what I was looking to do, to have a python program auto admit participants in the waiting room into the live meeting. Though it is unfortunate that no such command/permission exists for it, so thank you for letting me know. I do hope that a feature like this comes by later on for Zoom.

Thank you

Hi @samjoshua,

Thanks for confirming.

If you’re interested in seeing this capability in the future, I might also encourage you to submit a feature request for this here: #feature-requests

Will do, thank you for the response

Best regards

No problem, thanks again for the suggestion!
