Start meeting using Ionic SDK

I’m creating a meeting in my back end using the zoom API setting the option of “join_before_host: true” and in the return object shows that it was set up correctly then I return the zoom_meeting_id and the zoom_meeting_psw to my app in ionic but when I’m using the method “this.zoomService.joinMeeting” for start the meeting without the host the zoom SDK display me the message “Waiting for the host to start meeting”, What’s the correct way to start the meeting without the host in the Ionic SDK, I checked out the documentation and for Android SDK you can add the “role” option but in the ionic’s SDK there is not such an option.

BTW I already did the prerequisites for this situation

Which version?
Zoom Ionic SDK v4.6.21666.0603

Hi @isidorogomez.a,

Thanks for the post. The Ionic SDK itself does not control the join before host behavior. Based on your description, it seems like the waiting room feature has enabled on the meeting that you have scheduled and enabled the join before host. According to, if the waiting room is enabled, the join before host will not work. Please try to disable the waiting room if you would like to use the join before host feature.

Hope this helps. Thanks!

Ooooh thanks a lot that really works!!

Glad to be helpful. I will go ahead and close this thread. Please feel free to create another post if any other questions. :slight_smile:
