Problem starting meeting without host


I have a webapp where the schedule meeting is created by endpoint “/users/{userId}/meetings” and it creates successfully the meeting, sending links to people who will join the meeting.

The zoom user is set up to work in “Join Before Host” mode.

When user tries to enter to the meeting sometimes it is possible.

But sometimes the link don’t enter to the account and it redirects to the page "if you are the host please login to start this meeting ". For this reason I have to login to host manually each time.

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

Which Endpoint/s?



Hey @cmmolanos,

Are the users joining via the join_url or start_url? Make sure they are joining via the join_url.

Can you provide the response body JSON from the create meeting API that is having this issue of not being able to join before host?
