Hi @manishkumarmm93 You should be to use join before host by enabling it within your meeting or accounts settings within the Zoom Web Portal.

By your instruction, I changed it. But, Its not working properly.

Hi @Michael_Purnell

I understood it. But, Already enable


Still I can’t join the meeting


@manishkumarmm93 Please DM me your Account number. Meeting Number, API Key/Secret and I can take a look

@manishkumarmm93 Please remove your API Key. You do not want to display any sensitive information on a public forum.

Also, I was able to join the meeting, you will need to enter in your password to do so.

@Michael_Purnell Thanks for your kind full information.
Meeting Number = 9446363605
Account Number = 52984345
password = manish7903


@manishkumarmm93 Please see screenshot below. The password field should be right next to the meeting number or you can hardcode the password in the codebase if needed.

@Michael_Purnell I also done this way only.

Above I post my account details. Please check it ?


Hi @manishkumarmm93,

Looks like 9446363605 is a PMI, right now join before host does not work for PMIs. You would need to create a new meeting ID to join before host.

Let us know if this helps

Finally worked for me. Thank you guys.

Hey @s.obeidat,

You must use a real meeting ID without dashes, not 123.

Also make sure you are using a JWT App type for the API credentials.


Happy to hear @tools ! :slight_smile:


Now, I can not join a meeting by WebSDk again. Return error code 1.

I can Join meeting as same meeting id by app.

Hey @ke.wu1,

Please provide more details like full error message, screenshots, and steps to reproduce.


Now, it’s back to work again. I feel a little unstable
