Hi, Apologies if this has been asked before but I’m probably using the wrong terminology to search successfully.
I would like advice on how to provide the following;
Owner (with Pro licence) logs on and creates meeting
Potential Attendee registers for meeting
Owner takes register of actual attendees, usually to send out follow up material.
Specifically what zoom technologies and / or approaches (API vs SDK / JWT or OAuth) do I need to;
create users and meetings for a third party i.e. the owner, who is logged into my website.
accept meetings on behalf of the attendee
I’d rather NOT have to know the login details of either 3rd party (owner / attendee).
Now, as you want third-party users to log into your website and use their own Zoom account, you will need to publish your app in the Marketplace, once your app is published, and users install and authorize your app, it will be able to make API calls on behalf of them (without storing or asking for their credentials)
So if you are trying to have a basic user register for a specific meeting, then you would have to enable registration upon meeting creation.
That way you will receive a registration_url in your response body that you will be able to share with external users to register for said meeting.
Hi, Thankyou for your response, after a bit of digging I found the following fields;
default approval type, 2, requires no registration, so for testing I chose 0 for automatic approval.
Here’s my create meeting data;
“topic”: “Test Reg/App 2/0”,
However, the API call changed the date and time to the current date and time and I wondered what the rules are? Obviously a meeting created instantaneously, would need automatic approval, why set set the need for approval at all?
About the meeting creation, I noticed a couple of things.
De duration, type, registration type, and approval type are integer types, so make sure to pass those fields as integers and not as strings.
And I also did some testing with your payload and it looks like the start_time is what’s causing that the date and time is not the one that you want.
Make sure to pass the complete start time, in your case it should look like this: “2023-06-01T14:00:00Z”
