Description
Hello.
We are trying to start a webinar using the Web SDK from the Host user.

Error
We are receiving the following error:
{
method: “join”
status: false
errorCode: 3008
errorMessage: “meeting is not started”
result: null
}

Which version?

1.7.0

To Reproduce(If applicable)
Web SDK Calling Data:
ZoomMtg.setZoomJSLib (‘https://dmogdx0jrul3u.cloudfront.net/1.7.0/lib’, ‘/ av’);
ZoomMtg.preLoadWasm ();
ZoomMtg.prepareJssdk ();

var API_KEY = ‘XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX’;
var API_SECRET = ‘XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX’;

var meetConfig = {
apiKey: API_KEY,
apiSecret: API_SECRET,
meetingNumber: parseInt (‘685504419’),
userName: “PARTICIPANT NAME”,
passWord: “XXXXX”,
role: 0
};

var signature = ZoomMtg.generateSignature ({
meetingNumber: meetConfig.meetingNumber,
apiKey: meetConfig.apiKey,
apiSecret: meetConfig.apiSecret,
role: meetConfig.role,
success: function (res) {
console.log (‘signature ::::::::::::::::::’)
console.log (res.result);
}
});

ZoomMtg.init ({
debug: true, // optional

success: function () {
ZoomMtg.join (
{
meetingNumber: meetConfig.meetingNumber,
userName: meetConfig.userName,

},
error: function (res) {
console.log (res);
}
}
);
},
error: function (res) {
console.log (res);
}
});

Additional context
Could you help us?

Hey @alex.barreto, thanks for posting and using Zoom!

Unfortunately starting a webinar via the Web SDK is not supported.

For webinars, you can only join them with the Web SDK.

For starting meetings however, simply change the role in the meetConfig object to 1.

Thanks,
Tommy

Is there any other way to start via API?
And is there any prediction of this possibility via Web SDK? Because we can already perform this action via Android SDK or IOs.

Hey @alex.barreto,

Not at this time. Exactly, the Webinar needs to be started via the Zoom App (Desktop, iOS, or Android).

Thanks,
Tommy
