How to write a Live Event to your Calendar using Microsoft Graph API?

Jef Jonjevic 1 Reputation point

Is it possible to create a LiveEvent that shows up on the Teams calendar?

Via the meetings api I can create regular Meetings or LiveEvents, however, the api documentation includes a note that the resulting meetings will not show up on the users calendar. Given it's not on the calendar (and no where else visible?) it would seem we have to control all the settings programmatically via the api.

We would like to create Meetings/LiveEvents and then allow people the option to manage the settings by accessing the event on their calendar.

The calendar api allows creation with the 'isOnlineMeeting' flag but that makes only a Meeting and not a LiveEvent. I don't see any way to create a calendar event as a LiveEvent?

Is there any way to create a LiveMeeting that shows up on the calendar? Something I am missing?

    Hi @Jef Jonjevic

    Any meeting (including Live Events) created using cloud communication online meeting API won't be associated with an user's calendar.

    An online meeting event created using calendar events API only appears and associates with the user calendar. With Calendar events API, currently there is no option to create a Live Event.

    This Microsoft documentation clearly explains the differences/comparison between these APIs.

    Hence it is not feasible to associate a LiveMeeting with an user calendar.
