Possible to join via hosturlMeeting without getting logged in the browser?

Hello,

I schedule a new meeting, and then I call GethosturlMeeting to obtain host url.

But when someone opens this host url in the browser, it not only opens Cisco WebEx Meeting Center teleconferencing module, but also logs him/her in the browser as the host (giving him/her access to My WebEx, scheduling new meetings and so on). You can see that on the screenshot below - the browser is in the background.

My question is: is it somehow possible not to log in the browser? Just open the teleconferencing module/plugin but do not let the user do whatever (s)he wants in the browser/My WebEx as the host?

Thanks!

Hello,

     The host meeting API request does require browser authentication for security purposes. You may hide this behind a desktop application with a built in browser control that you can terminate after the meeting client finishes launching. WebEx authentication is revoked upon termination of the browser process, so browsing the site as a host would not be possible. Alternately, you may provide a full WebEx integration from your own custom portal and have your WebEx site automatically redirect to your portal, to further prevent direct site usage, as desired.
