Need details on how registration works

I need to confirm a few things about the operation of the registration feature that are not entirely clear from the documentation.

  1. Is registering someone via the API (endpoints: /meetings/{meetingId}/registrants or /webinars/{webinarId}/registrants) the same as if they registered by the online form? I.e., will the confirmation email containing the unique link to the meeting/webinar be sent?

  2. Is the unique link an access control mechanism? What will happen if two different people try to use the same unique link? Will they both be able to join the meeting?

Thanks for your help!

Hi @charles, thanks for posting & using Zoom!

  1. Yes, the registration API reflects features and account settings of the web form. If you specify that emails should be sent, the registrant will receive a unique join URL.
  2. Registration is, currently, a mechanism to generate unique join URLs. It does not currently authenticate the user via email. The best current solution would be to require registration, require authentication or login to join the meeting, and potentially also require specific domains to join the meeting.|

Let us know if there’s anything we can help with!
