Start/join meeting only after start time

Hi team,

I am using rest APIs to create a scheduled zoom meeting with start and end time. I have made join before host flag as true. So the participants can join the meeting even without starting the meeting by host.
My question is that…is there anyway that the meeting should start only after the meeting start time. And the participants should not be able to join before the start time?
How I can achieve it programmatically using API’s.


Hey @shashi,

You can achieve this by creating a scheduled meeting with the join_before_host option set to false.

The user won’t be allowed to join the meeting until the meeting has been started by the host.


Let me know if this helps!
