Get userId of user who launched app into meeting stage

New Contributor

I have an app that makes use of the Shared Meeting Stage functionality provided by MS Teams API. This works fine and when any participant clicks on the "Launch to meeting stage" icon in the sidePanel app, the Shared Meeting Stage opens up for all participants with contents of my app.


However, I wanted to give the person who launched the app into meeting stage access to some additional functionality within the meeting stage app that other attendees do not have. In order to do that, I need to know who the user is who launched the app into meeting stage.


How can I get the information of which user launched the app into meeting stage?

Thanks in advance
