Is it possible to control participants waiting in the lobby to be allowed in only the meeting organizer?

Online Meeting api was used to create and use live events.

Then add the lobbySetting function

Except for the Meeting organizer, I made sure to go to the lobby when participating.


When the organizer participated in the meeting, the list of participants waiting at the lobby was checked and all participants were allowed to enter the meeting by pressing the [Allow Entry].


However, we found that this [Allow Entry] button can also be allowed by participants who participated in the meeting first, not by the organizer.

Is it possible to control the button to be accepted only by the organizers who are conducting the meeting?

I'm looking for the api document, but I haven't found it yet, so I'm leaving a question.

    Once the meeting starts, you, co-organizers, and presenters can admit or deny people from the lobby. Currently there is no way to let only organizers allow/deny people from lobby. This is not possible via UI or API.
