Meetings settings vs API - who wins?

Hello-

We are rolling out an app that launches Zoom meetings via the Zoom API. With this launch, we will have some Zoom users that will be hosts in that app, but those same users will also be hosts of other Zoom meetings outside of the app. My question is will the Zoom settings applied to the users be overridden while they are hosting meetings in our app via the Zoom API?

 

Thanks!

Hello!

 

This is going to depend on the setting how it gets applied. 

If a user has something set as a default, but it's able to be changed from that default on a per-meeting basis, then the API will be able to override it.  

If there is an admin setting that specifically disables a feature for a particular user, then they would not be able to use that feature from the API either.

 

Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.

Thanks! Rick
