Is there an API to control the Rooms app?

Is there an API to control the Rooms app? Like to start/stop meetings, start sharing or whiteboard, giving the same controls as the in room tablet interface?

Thanks

HI,

As per my knowledge, we don't have this flexibility with RC. I have verified and I didn't observe any API to handle start sharing or whiteboard.

It seems weird that the Meeting API has an "End Meeting' interface, but no "Start Meeting".

If I remember correctly, when you create a meeting without the schedule param, the meeting can be started immediately.

Yes,

but starting a scheduled meeting from a list is THE central functionalities we are using and this does not seem to be possible with the API.

Then all the "in meeting" control, like camera control, sharing control, whiteboard control are all missing from the API.

I can only conclude the API does not provide what is needed to properly control the Ringcentral Room Meetings feature.

Unfortunately, that is all public meeting APIs we have currently. If this is critical for your project, can you submit a support ticket to see if they can help.
