URL API Join Meeting POST only

So from the notes it looks like the join meeting API will only accept POST requests starting early next year.

I write a plugin for Moodle that redirects the user to join a meeting. Will the only way to do similar functionality in the future be to write out a page with a hidden form that submits on load using javascript?

I'm scratching my head trying to think of other ways to maintain the functionality.

Hi Eric,

Javascript will work, but if a hidden form and submit function won't meet your needs, you can check out the GetjoinurlMeeting.  It uses our XML API and will accept the same parameters as the URL AT=JM command.  the API will returns back a encoded MTID parameter to join into a meeting similar to AT=JM.  You can get more information from this link https://developer.cisco.com/site/webex-developer/develop-test/xml-api/xml-api-reference/#getjoinurlmeeting

For a host account you can also check out GethosturlMeeting

or GetloginurlUser

Greeetings! I am unfamiliar with Moodle and the plugin that you've written for it. Most programming languages, however, allow a person to build and send a POST request, e.g. PHP's http_post_fields() function.

Michael, That wouldn't be terribly useful, as now the server will have joined a meeting, not the user using the website.

kinglewi,

Thanks, I'll have to poke them some more. The API docs you reference show them returning soon to be invalid URLs with the PW parameter.
