Support for 3rd party passwords in Google Calendar

When scheduling Zoom meetings for Webex Devices using the Zoom scheduling add-on for Google calendar (add meeting pull down), there is no way to insert the meeting password as part of the SIP URI for Hybrid Calendar to extract for OBTP. Modifying the meeting email template does not solve this. Therefore, users joining interop meetings scheduled via the Google add-on scheduler are required to enter a password. Need a way for Hybrid Calendar to insert the password into the SIP URI for OBTP.
Feature Request - Add logic to Hybrid Calendar to extract the password and modify the SIP URI with the following format for OBTP for Webex Devices: <meeting id>.<password>

    Admin response

    Format of SIP URI's is governed by SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) RFC 3261 which specifies RFC 2396 Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI): Generic Syntax be used. The aforementioned SIP URI does not match this standard. Therefore, Calendar Service should not specify a deviation from RFC 2396.

    We plan to add a feature to allow customer admins to add custom parsing rules.

    In the meantime, please work with your conference provider to conform to the RFC 2396 standard for SIP URI's.
