Another way to start SFU recording is to programmatically create a room using the Create Room REST API and passing recording_info object with enabled key set as true. Instead, we recommend to use the Room APIs paired with the Recording APIs if you wish to programmatically control room and recording operations.

How-to migrate

Migrating to room composite recordings is just a few toggles of work on the 100ms Dashboard.
