TIMELINE creation criteria

API Endpoint(s) and/or Zoom API Event(s)

Description
Can I get some clarification for the criteria of the creation of a TIMELINE file alongside a cloud recording?

According to the documentation for Get meeting recordings:

To get a timeline file, the “Add a timestamp to the recording” setting must be enabled in the recording settings.

However, my testing is not showing this to be the case. Regardless of whether “Add a timestamp to the recording” is enabled or not, I am only seeing a TIMELINE file generated when “Create audio transcript” is enabled.

Is this an error in the documentation or am I missing some other setting for this? Thanks!

In case it’s helpful for the Zoom folks, here are some sample meetings that I tested with:

  • rN7r4lf6TzaDsUTcpLFZ7g==: “Create audio transcript” enabled, “Add a timestamp to the recording” disabled, TIMELINE generated
  • WGldMqKtRPeVmdvmpnF3QQ==: "“Create audio transcript” disabled, “Add a timestamp to the recording” disabled, TIMELINE NOT generated
  • W1Lc5ICCR7Gwi5cOCTf/8A==: "“Create audio transcript” disabled, “Add a timestamp to the recording” enabled, TIMELINE NOT generated

Checking in to see if anyone has any insights here?
