Unable to connect to a meeting as participant using Component View


I have a meeting crated via API. When I query for the details of the meeting I get:

When connecting to the meeting using Component View it works fine when the role specified is 1 (i.e. host). When connecting with role=0, I get a pop-up with following error:

Fail to join the meeting
Don’t support meeting/webinar authentication

There are no browser console errors.

I’ve tested that on:

  • Browser: Chrome, Edge

hi @tomasz.masternak ,

did you request users to register for the meeting before they can join?
if that is the case, you will need to pass in tk field


Hi @chunsiong.zoom

I’m not sure I understand “did you request users to register?”.

I am creating the meeting via API with the options that I have specified. My goal is to enable users to connect to that meeting using Component View. Some of them should do that as hosts (role=1) and some as attendees (role=0).

How do I know if “I have requested users to register?”.


Hi @tomasz.masternak,

I’ve just tried and compared some settings against yours

Here are some differences

"enforce_login": true //mine is set to false
"meeting_authentication": true, //mine is set to false

Hi @chunsiong.zoom


    "settings": {
        "encryption_type": "enhanced_encryption",
        "focus_mode": true,
        "host_video": true,
        "jbh_time": 0,
        "join_before_host": true,
        "meeting_authentication": false,
        "enforce_login": false,
        "mute_upon_entry": false,
        "participant_video": true,
        "watermark": false,
        "host_save_video_order": true,
        "alternative_host_update_polls": true    }

did the trick. Thank you.

That said, now the attendee is not able to join before the host. And the host needs to admit them.

How to I ensure that there is not waiting room and the attendees can join before host?

@tomasz.masternak , waiting room might be a setting on zoom.us .
If you want to disable waiting room, you can use this field in your post message

try this

“settings”: {
“encryption_type”: “enhanced_encryption”,
“focus_mode”: true,
“host_video”: true,
“jbh_time”: 0,
“join_before_host”: true,
“meeting_authentication”: false,
“enforce_login”: false,
“mute_upon_entry”: false,
“participant_video”: true,
“watermark”: false,
“waiting_room”: false,
“host_save_video_order”: true,
“alternative_host_update_polls”: true }

Thank you @chunsiong.zoom,

one last question. Now with meeting_authentication turned to false anyone with the join link (easy to guess based on the meeting id) can join the meeting.

Is there a way to setup a meeting in such a way that only users with start_url or using Component View can join the call?


you should set a password / passcode so that there is at least single factor of authentication
