Good questions—happy to clarify!
What does it mean that ‘was it over two hours between meeting creation’?
This is the json data received in response to the meeting creation.
The reason I asked was because after 2 hours, the
start_url that is returned in the original create meeting api response will expire. The meeting itself is still valid, but the start_url will no longer work, and will need to be refreshed by calling the GET Meeting endpoint to retrieve a new one.
The start_url response below was made at 2020-11-18T00:45:36Z.
So, are you saying that I can’t access the room as host without logging in after 2 hours?
You can, you will just need to generate a new start_url by calling the GET Meeting endpoint.
Does that mean that the meeting room is only valid(as a host without logging in) for 2 hours from created_at?
No, just the start_url—which can be refreshed.
Can’t I create a meeting room whenever I can always take the role of the host?
Why do I get this message “If you are th meeting host, sign in…” when I log in the days after I make the start_url?
This means the start_url is most likely expired (after 2 hours)—call the GET Meeting endpoint to generate a refreshed start_url for the same meeting.
Is there any restriction to playing host without logging in when accessing start_url?
If you grab the start_url from the GET Meeting API or the Create Meeting API response, this should not require you to login.
Let me know if this helps to clarify!
