Problem with weekly recurrence in webex XML API.

Hi, i am using the XML API for creating a meeting.

In our case the meeting is weekly repeat type.

A sample XML Request has below xml for weekly repeat

<repeat>

    <repeatType>WEEKLY</repeatType>

    <dayInWeek>

        <day>SUNDAY</day>

        <day>MONDAY</day>

        <day>TUESDAY</day>

    </dayInWeek>

    <interval>10</interval>

</repeat>

The interval tag would specify that meeting occurs ' Every 10 weeks on Monday, Tuesday, Sunday, from ...'.

But when the meeting is created it is somehow ignoring the <interval> value and creates a meeting for Every week.

Is the use of <interval> tag for every number of week correct here. The XML API reference does talk about this -

     'Repeats the meeting every week or every number of weeks as designated. The meeting can also be

     scheduled for multiple days every week until the specified ending date is reached.'

But the reference does not have an sample example for above use case.

Can someone let me know if this is possible using the XML API and what would be the correct way of creating such a XML request.

Hello,

     You are using interval by its intended design. The email invitation behavior you are experiencing has been duplicated previously and reported to engineering and product management as a bug, which would typically be repaired in future XML API releases. Work around in the meantime would be to manually trigger email invitations from the WebEx page, or build your own email notification system to have greater control over email content.

Hi,

   I looked deeper into this and found that the meeting created was indeed with proper intervals. It is what the meeting description in mail was showing which was incorrect.

Somehow description is not reflecting this interval.

What description we receive

     "Every Monday, Tuesday, Sunday, from Tuesday, March 18, 2014 to no end date "


What would be correct description

     "Every 10 weeks on Monday, Tuesday, Sunday, from Tuesday, March 18, 2014 to no end date "
