    @ice dev Are you sure Alternative Hosts is blank? There was a problem if it was over 255 characters long. Do you have a screen recording of the steps leading up to the problem?

    I've started using Zoom to teach an online course. It's important for me to know exactly who is there and having preassigned breakout groups is very useful. Since we also use Moodle, the Zoom plugin is very useful in identifying who's there (I guesse the name is taken from the Moodle account profile), but it doesn't work with the preassign breakout groups, since the ID for these is the institutional mail address (which is also part of the student profile). I'm not sure how to exactly phrase this, but could the plugin also "push" the email address when student join a meeting. I'd gladly try to explain better, if needed. Thanks! Best, Eric

    @eric Unfortunately the Zoom join url parameters only allow for uname (Name) to be passed. There is a discussion here on their dev section:

    What happened to the "Login Types" section in v2.2 of this plugin?

    @Darrel Please see

    Turns out it was a performance concern and does not affect the results returned by the Zoom webservice get_user().

    Is this plugin compatible with version 3.8.1+? If not, will a compatible version be forthcoming?

    After the implementation of the LTI Pro module within the ZOOM Marketplace, is this plugin still operational? Try using it in my moodle but I miss the following error: "The Token's Signature resulted invalid when verified using the Algorithm: HmacSHA256." Thank u

    I have the same issue here on a Moodle 3.8.1+ (Build: 20200124). "Connection Status: Connection failed: Access token is expired." The same key works fine in another installation with Moodle 3.7 installed.

    Maybe it hepls. The plugin produces no entry in Zooms "API Call Logs". The error does'nt change when i use an unvalid key.

    Are the problems people having on Moodle 3.8? We will be testing our plugin when we upgrade to Moodle 3.8 in the next few weeks.

    @Simon Yes, the LTI Pro module should be the tool to try first. It has support for more advanced features like recurring meetings.
