I am trying to find a way to utilize the webhooks to determine when specific participants enter and leave a meeting created via API. We have a database of users on our application that we want to store their attendance within meetings. How can we map our users to the webhook data provided?
What is the best way to map webhook event payloads to specific unique users on our application?
Thanks for the reply. We are trying to match both the joined and left event with a user_id on our application. Here is our use-case:
Users log into our application
In our application, the users will click on a button that will redirect them to a meeting via the join_url we retrieved from creating a meeting in the API.
We’ll record the webhook of them joining and exiting and match them with our own user. For example: that user’s id on our application is ‘123’ and we want to know which of the join and exit events belong to them.
The user_id does match but the id does not. The id is not present in the join event, because as you mentioned the user isn’t logged in. Any chance we get that id to be present for the join event?
You could also use the user_name field to match the registrants to participants.
Yep, I think we might be able to manage this too. Any chance that this could change by user inputs? That is if a user goes into the meeting and then changes their name. Will the name not match anymore between join and leave event?
