Webhook for Participant Joins a Waiting Room


We need to keep a tally in our system of how many Participants are in a Meeting, including those in the Waiting Room for that Meeting. We thought to use Webhooks for this

In my own testing, I have observed if a Participant joins, and they enter a Waiting Room, the Webhook event for 'meeting.participant_joined' will not fire until the Host admits them into the Meeting. This was unfortunate for me as I needed to count the ones in the Waiting Room

I was overjoyed to see Participant joined a waiting room in the event types we could register for:

However, I cannot see this event hitting my endpoint.

While I can see my endpoint receiving other events, I do not see it receive any events for Participant joined a waiting room

Please note I also cannot find any reference to Participant joined a waiting room in the API documentation

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Which Endpoint/s?
Participant joined a waiting room

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Register your webhook endpoint for Participant joined a waiting room
  2. Open a meeting with your Zoom account configured to have them wait for the host to admit them
  3. Have a participant joint that meeting but do not admit them
  4. See no event is firing

Additional context
I would like to emphasize that any way I could use Webhooks to get a sense of how many participants there are total associated with a meeting, including those in any waiting rooms, is a solution for me
