      2. Go to MM Dev Testing Course > BBB > User limit. Check that the app doesn't say that there is a session in progress.
      3. Click "Join session". Check that the BBB room is opened in the browser.
      4. Go back to the app. Check that the BBB page is updated automatically and now it says there is 1 viewer (or 1 moderator if the user you're using is a moderator).

    Description

      For example, when a moderator starts a meeting, or when a user enters a meeting that is already ongoing, it takes a while for the app to know that the meeting started or the user joined. This is because the get_meeting_info WS uses a cache to improve performance.

      The WS supports a parameter updatecache to force updating the cached data, but Laurent warned that we shouldn't abuse it because it can affect the server.

      IMO we should force updating the cache after a user joins a meeting, so the app displays the new data.

      We should decide if we also want to use it when the user performs a PTR, because right now the PTR will always get cached data so it can display outdated info.
