Start meeting through api

Hi.I’m using your jwt service.So far i successfully able to create meeting.Now i want to start meeting as a host.Is it possible to do it from our website through api not from zoom app?If so can you show how to do so?
Thank you.

Hey @notarybd.services,

Unfortunately the meeting itself cannot be started programmatically via the API. An actual user has to start the meeting.

As a workaround, you can enable “Join before host” to start the meeting when the first participant joins.

Thanks
Tommy

Sorry for late reply.Ok i started meeting by using meeting url.Is there anyway for user to join meeting through api.?
Thank you.

Hey @notarybd.services,

The user themselves need to join the meeting via the join_url. After a meeting is created, you get a join_url.

Also, if you are interested, checkout our Web SDK where you can embed Zoom into your website to allow joining and starting meeting controls:

Thanks,
