Zoom Bridge Overview: 

The LF provides 10 general use Zoom meeting accounts for the ONAP community.  

These shared accounts are administered by the LF team, but usage is ultimately managed by the community.  Here are some important things you need to know:

  • Wherever and whenever possible Zoom meeting bridges have been distributed across the different ONAP accounts with buffers on either side of the scheduled meeting to avoid conflicts.  
  • Meeting IDs are good for a specific day and time-slot only
  • DO NOT use an assigned meeting bridge to start a meeting at a different date or time
  • DO NOT log into a different meeting using the same Host account  

Bridge Errors 

  • If you receive the error, "The meeting host is attending another meeting" or similar message: 

    • a previous meeting using that Host account is still in progress and did not end as scheduled 

    • the Host forgot to end the Zoom session and someone is still connected to the bridge

    • someone has used that Host account to start a meeting outside of the assigned time-slot

    • someone is using that Host account to attend another Host's meeting in progress

SEND EMAIL TO indicating that you are having an issue with a specific meeting host. The email will be distributed to the complete list of alternate users that have host privileges for any of the ONAP Zoom bridges.  

Effective Jan. 31, 2018 The LF will no longer take action, intervene or set up an emergency bridge in the event of an ONAP bridge conflict. 


NOTE: A minimum of 2 business days lead time is needed to ensure your meeting gets scheduled

  10. After you have verified the upload was successful and you can watch the recording from the wiki you can remove the files from you computer.

    Chat File Content

    If it exists uploading the chat.txt file is often beneficial to the team. BE ADVISED the chat file may contain private chats sent from/to the person recording the meeting.

    DO NOT upload any "audio_only" or "playback" files.

Alternate Meeting Hosts 


  1. Above I see:

    • Recording privileges are only granted to TSC Members, Sub-Committee Chairs PTLs, or Community Coordinators

    What does the LF recommend for weekly sessions that are normally recorded when the PTL for a project is on vacation or otherwise unable to host the weekly session?

    1. Hi Jimmy, that is the rule of thumb.  Due to the lack of automation on all of this meeting account management would become my full time job. (wink)
      Exceptions are absolutely granted at the request of the PTL. Just follow the  Recording Privileges info and cc your proxy.
