Can't invite participants when creating meeting with API

I can see that a couple similar issues were created but none have actually been solved..
It seems pretty odd that you can't invite participants to a meeting when creating it with the API. This is one of the most basic requirements of creating a meeting.

[
  'settings' => [
    'meeting_invitees' => [
      ['email' => '***********'],
    ]
  ]

Hello Drew!

 

There is a simple explanation for this. Zoom Meetings does not have an email service for sending out invites. Zoom meetings uses the following workflows for scheduling meetings: 

https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362183-Inviting-others-to-join-a-meeting 

 

You can see a similar question answered in our dev forum: https://devforum.zoom.us/t/webinar-invite-attendees-copy-email-invitation-through-api/13220/3 

 

A relevant response from there:

"Zoom does not have custom email invite functionality with the API. You will have to use a 3rd party API like SendGrid. 25

As for the “Copy the email” content, this content can be constructed with the response of the Create Meeting 4 or Get Meeting 11 endpoints."

 

Let me know if that answers your question! 

 

If you have a specific feature request and want to share more about your use case, please let Zoom know by filling out a feedback form for the product team: located at https://www.zoom.us/feed

Understood, thanks Micah.
I think the API documentation is a little misleading for this meeting property.
