    I installed the latest 3.8.0 into my 3.6.3 Moodle and it caused issues with the adhoc tasks due to the upgrade_calendars task requiring the logging trait which doesn't exist in 3.6.3. This caused my mdl_task_adhoc table to queue up for a couple weeks. Can you please update the version requirement for 3.8.0 to not include 3.6?

    I successfully realized the integration with the plugin. But my only problem is that I can't see the recordings over the moodle. What should I do for it?

    For those who have run into problem "WebEx exception 000001", I have written this with some background: https://github.com/merrill-oakland/moodle-mod_webexactivity/wiki/Manual#webex-exception-000001-when-creating-new-user

    Thank you for the nice plugin. I have tested it with Moodle 3.9. I found two unusual behavior.
    1. Domain
    I tested this plugin from two domains. Registered in Webex site and not.
    The results were same.
    Once the error was shown 'not registered domain'.
    After back page by browser, then click activity,
    Webex starts from both domains.
    I think only registered site can connect.

    2. Editing the activity
    Making the activity and saving.
    Then editing the meeting time, but the changing did NOT affected.

    Thanks for this great plug-in. I have installed it successfully. However, the recording are not saved in the admin account from my organization but in my private account that I use as a person. Do you have any ideas what might be wrong with the set-up? I would like the recordings to be saved in the admin account that we use as a team as well.

    Looking forward to a short reply!
    Thanks a lot!

    And the second question I have. I have clicked to manage all recordings in the Webex cloud. Now I have access to recordings I do not need. If I delete them from Moodle, I just delete them from the learning management system. They will still be available in the Webex Cloud, right?
    Looking forward to a short reply. Thanks a lot!

    Hello, I have a problem with the plugin, I am just testing it but when I create a resource when I save and exit I get the following error:

    An error occurred while trying to connect: 3:

    More information about this error

    Marc - This indicates a curl connection error for 'malformed url'. Likely that you have an incorrect value in the site name setting. This would be better off in the discussion https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=255736 (I didn't notice I wasn't subscribed to that, but I am now).

    Thanks Eric, I'm new to moodle, I have already understood the functioning of the plugin.
    Tanks to that I understood ^^

    We are receiving the next error when starts a sesion like host - Error occurred in Webex processing XML: 060002 An in-progress session cannot be updated or deleted.
    If there are multiple instructors in one course, each instructor will only be able to start, edit, and delete the meetings that they created, and will not be able to do so for meetings created by other instructors. Would it be possible to modify the plugin knowing this?

    Hello! We have a different version of the moodle - 3.11, if we download the 3.9 version, will it fit in our moodle?

    Webex announced the End-of-Support (EoS) date is planned for the second half of 2023 for XML API.
    Cisco will continue to resolve bugs up to this date, but new features will only be implemented for the REST APIs suite.

    Is there plans this plugin to be rewritten to use the new Rest Api with json objects?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello. This module does not appear to work correctly in php8.0. I have opened an issue on the github site, however, tha activity (or lack thereof) on the codebase, and its long standing "beta" state, appear to indicate that the module may no longer be maintained. Any thoughts/news/indications?
