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)?
Participant joined a waiting room
How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
- Register your webhook endpoint for Participant joined a waiting room
- Open a meeting with your Zoom account configured to have them wait for the host to admit them
- Have a participant joint that meeting but do not admit them
- See no event is firing
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
