What is user_id in Dashboard API meeting participant?

I am trying to call the Dashboard API
GET /metrics/meetings/{meetingId}/participants

One of the returned attribute for a participant is “user_id”. I notice that this “user_id” doesn’t exists when trying to get a user through the Users API. Further, after checking several meetings, I also found that different person in different meetings could have the same “user_id”.

So my dumb question is what is this field for? Thanks.

Hey @vicker,

The user_id is the id of the participant unique to a single meeting.

It is used to map registrations to webhooks and the dashboard APIs.

See this thread for more info:
