Why 'End meeting' doesn't end it actually?

Hi @will.zoom,

Okay, will check. Meanwhile, I have also given my zoom meeting details which I have created through API. Please check this post Meeting ended still status showing as "waiting".

Thank you!!

Hey @nike28,

Thanks for updating that other thread—I’ve replied to your post there.

In regards to meeting ID expiration, let me know if you have any questions.

Best,
Will

Hello @will.zoom,

I have gone through the post which you had given. Can you please explain the below line in short or simple way? Like, is scheduled meeting and non recurring meeting the same?

  • A non-recurring meeting ID (also known as a one-time meeting ID) will expire 30 days after the scheduled date if the meeting is not recorded. You can also restart the same meeting ID within the 30 days and if you restart the meeting, it will remain valid for another 30 days.

Hi @nike28,

That’s correct—a scheduled meeting (as long it’s not part of a recurring series) would fall into the same category as a non-recurring meeting. These meeting IDs will expire 30 days after the scheduled date.

I hope this helps to clarify,
Will

Hi @will.zoom,

I’m having understanding this. Can you give me an example of what exactly is a recurring series? Also, I want to integrate Zoom meeting into our website where Teachers will teach students X course after clicking on “Create Meeting” from her profile so what exactly should I do? I mean, how should I create a scheduled meeting that expires after the teacher ends it from zoom? I’m sorry if I’m making it too complicated but I’m really struggling.

Thank you.

Hi @nike28,

Can you give me an example of what exactly is a recurring series?

A recurring series is a Zoom meeting that is scheduled to repeat occurrences on a regular cadence.

I want to integrate Zoom meeting into our website where Teachers will teach students X course after clicking on “Create Meeting” from her profile so what exactly should I do? I mean, how should I create a scheduled meeting that expires after the teacher ends it from zoom?

In this instance, if it will be a one time meeting, I would recommend using the Create Meeting API to create a meeting of type 2:

To be clear, you can’t force a meeting to expire—if this meeting isn’t restarted at any point within 30 days after, it will expire.

I hope this helps to clarify!

Hi @will.zoom,

I had followed the same, but I still haven’t got the exact solution as to why Update Meeting Status or End meeting from Zoom doesn’t show the status as Ended. As, I had informed that I want to show the status on a button accordingly, if the API response showed proper status then it would have been easy to show it, right? Can you provide an alternative or so for the same?

Thank you for your consideration.

Hey @nike28,

At the moment, I would not recommend using the meeting status to correlate to a frontend action, as the ‘waiting’ status will often take place after certain meeting types, as discussed here.

That said, I think this is some excellent feedback, and I’ll be happy to share this with my team—I can definitely appreciate how some more granular status field values would be helpful in your use case.

Thanks,
Will
