WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

Does anyone know or have any example code on how to start an Instant  Meeting with WebEX?

I can create a meeting, it's just not instant?

Re: WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

Hi Cliff,

I woud suggest simulating an instant meeting by creating a meeting via XML CreateMeeting (or URL API m.php?AT=SM) then either building your own host meeting URL or using XML GethostURLMeeting to auto generate it.  You can reference the

Launching an “Instant” Meeting section on page 4 in "Scheduling and Launching Meetings on Mobile Devices using WebEx Web Conferencing APIs" tech notes on http://webexdeveloper.com > Learn > Tech Notes and White Papers.

I see this documentation:

https://developer.cisco.com/fileMedia/download/0e46fc7d-d979-481f-b5d2-e1d14203541a

It speaks about an Impromptu Meeting?

Re: WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

Hi Cliff,

While you could use m.php?AT=IM to start an "instant" meeting, it's generally not recommended.  It will automatically start a meeting without pre-scheduling it; however obtaining/generating a join link is more difficult.  The meeting number (which you would utilize to generate your join link) is not returned back upon the meeting start with AT=IM.  Therefore it's better to simulate an instant meeting flow by scheduling it first (which will return the meeting key).

Re: WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

Thanks agin for your replies.

I have tried all the code from all the documents and nothing really works with creating an instant meeting. Using the code it just logs me in, then just goes to the Join an Unlisted Meeting page?


Totally lost..

But thanks,

Re: WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

Hi Cliff,

If you can provide some additional details regarding the exact steps and APIs being used we can try to assist.  No need to provide any security details (i.e. username/password or siteID/partnerID) but seeing the API requests would help.  If there are any errors being returned by the URL API, it will be appended to the returned URL (i.e. AT=HM&ST=FAIL&RS={ReasonForFailure}).

Re: WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

I get at the end of the URL:

AT=SM&ST=FAIL&RS=RefCodeIsRequired&RN=TC1

Re: WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

I finally got it working, figured out it was missing the TC1 codes...

Re: WebEX Code to start an instant meeting

Hi Cliff,

If you are scheduling using AT=SM, the meeting number (MK) should be returned in the response (AT=SM&ST=SUCCESS&MK=MeetingKey).  If you schedule using XML API (CreateMeeting) this should also be returned in the XML response.  You would retrieve this value and use it to either build your URL manually (m.php?AT=HM) or have it generated automatically via XML API (GethosturlMeeting).  For joining a meeting you can use m.php?AT=JM or GetjoinurlMeeting.

Regards,

Jayde
