Patching Livestream Status is intermittently failing

Description
We are developing an App to stream Zoom meetings to our own service using the livestream API call. For example once we have an access token and user, we hit this end point:

meetings/82207063181/livestream

with an rtmp url and stream key:

{“stream_url”:“rtmp://…”,“stream_key”:"…"}

Then sending this:

meetings/82207063181/livestream/status

{action: “start”}

This almost always works (sometimes we have to send the start action twice). But the bug is that intermittently the “stop” action fails and resending it does nothing.

meetings/82207063181/livestream/status

{action: “stop”}

Even when the API call fails, it still returns a 204 and fails silently. The meeting keeps streaming.

Just to confirm that the user session is valid, I can use the same user in the same session to stream the same zoom meeting to a different URL, and start and stop work.

If you have any logs for meeting ID 82207063181 above the bug happened between 4:15 - 4:30 EST.

Error
Patch method fails while returning a 204. There is no error message.

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
