Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • Attendees (list) –

      The Amazon Chime SDK attendee information.

      • (dict) –

        An Amazon Chime SDK meeting attendee. Includes a unique AttendeeId and JoinToken . The JoinToken allows a client to authenticate and join as the specified attendee. The JoinToken expires when the meeting ends or when DeleteAttendee is called. After that, the attendee is unable to join the meeting.

        We recommend securely transferring each JoinToken from your server application to the client so that no other client has access to the token except for the one authorized to represent the attendee.

          The Amazon Chime SDK external user ID. An idempotency token. Links the attendee to an identity managed by a builder application.

        • JoinToken (string) –
