Hi,

I'm using the sandbox account  https://service.devtest.ringcentral.com for testing api.
I tried to create meeting using API, but I'm getting this error
[errorCode] => CMN-408 
[message] => [Meetings] permission required

I have granted my app the permission to access and update Meetings. but still no luck.
Also there is not option for meetings in UI too.

What is the meetingType that you are trying to create? Could you provide the API request ( including the HTTP body)?

The HTTP method you are using is a GET. 

Kindly refer to this link to see how to 'Create Meeting' using the API's :

Hi Altaf,

You got that error because your sandbox account is not enabled to access meetings feature.
Can you let us know the type of your account. Is it a free developer account or are you a RingCentral customer/partner?

Kind regards,
Phong

Hi Phong,

Thank you for your reply, I'm using free developer account. Can you please tell me how do I enable Meeting feature in free account?
