Remove participant from a meeting

Description
Is there any API to remove a participant from an ongoing meeting?

Hi @deepali.necti,

There’s not an API to manage participants in this manner. However, are you using registration for your meetings? If so, you can remove a registrant from a meeting. But if you’re not using registration, if the user has a join_url for an upcoming meeting, they will be able to use that as long as the join_url is still valid.

Thanks,

Actually, we would like to restrict participants joining same meeting from different devices.
So we were thinking to remove such participant from the meeting first, and then allowing to rejoin.

Any suggestions how can we achieve this using web sdk or API or webhook?

Hi @deepali.necti,

Have you considered using the “allow_multiple_devices” field in the Create/Update Meeting APIs?

Thanks,

As per the zoom API documentation, this field is only available when we have enabled the registration.

In our case, we do not want any registration to join a meeting therefore we are not using this field while calling create meeting API

Hi @deepali.necti,

Thank you for clarifying your use case. Aside from this setting, I do not believe there is a separate way to restrict participants from joining a meeting from different devices—though, it’s a great suggestion.

You might consider posting a feature request for this here #feature-requests

Thanks,
