About the behavior of API execution when a user or integrated app is deleted after obtaining an access token


I plan to create an OAuth app and implement a Zoom integration feature in an existing web service. I want to obtain an access token and call APIs such as the Meetings API.

After obtaining the access token, if a user or administrator performs the following operations, will API calls using that access token result in an error? If so, what would the HTTP status be, 401, 403, etc.?

  1. If the relevant user is deleted from Zoom.
  2. If the integrated app on Zoom is deleted.


Hi @pi3kp85
Thanks for reaching out to us and welcome to our community!
I would expect that the API calls made after the user is deleted or the app is deleted will result in an error. I would expect a 401 unauthorized access token is expired.
I can do try and do some testing on my end and will get back to you to confirm this behavior

Dear Elisa,

Thank you for your response, and thank you for conducting the test.
Iā€™m looking forward to your reply.


Hi @pi3kp85
I just wanted to get back to you after the testing I did.
In case that the app is deleted or the user is deleted from Zoom, you will get the following error:

    "code": 124,
    "message": "Invalid access token."

Status 401: Unauthorized

Hope this helps!

Dear Elisa,

Thank you for the test and clear response.
It was very helpful.
