Why is the Meeting ID sometimes a string and sometimes a long?

According to the document, some API defines Meeting ID as string, but the other API defines as long.
For example, /metrics/meetings returns Meeting ID as long, and /users/{userId}/meetings as string.
Why is it not the same data type?

Hi @matsukaz, Meeting IDs should be interpreted as long, as they can be 11 digits. We’ll take a look at the documentation to make sure we’re updated. Thanks!

Thank you for your reply!
It seems that not only the documentation but also the API itself are handling Meeting ID as string.
Hope it gets fixed soon, thanks. :grinning:

@matsukaz @michael.harrington Unfortunately, this is a known issue caused by design differences early on. The engineering team will be fixing it in the future, but it stands as a low priority bug. In the meantime, please convert the Meeting ID to a consistent data type while storing it in your db to avoid errors. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you,

HI @shrijana.g ,OK I understand.
I’ll handle Meeting ID as string for now.
Thank you.
