API Call to Invite Channel Members returning “code”: -1

We are getting an error code -1 when using API call to add Zoom members to a channel


One in approx 20 works but 19/20 returns error code.

Manually deleting a user that is successful and trying with same user returns error also so it is not related to the users being added.

Hey @mongoman30,

Can you share the channel ID and the request body so I can look into the logs?

Hi @tommy

Here’s the info that you are asking:

Channel ID: 8f3a6a35-2a68-45b7-b050-1de84d292400
Request Body:
“members”: [
“email”: “email_here”

Hey @adrian_parnacio,

Does this work for other of your Zoom Members?

I’m wondering if you don’t have the permission to call this endpoint to add the account Owner to the channel?


Hi @tommy,

Yes it works for other members but not all. I’m not sure why others cannot be added because the response message does not have any details.

I was able to add the account owner once but I was not able to replicate it.

Hey @adrian_parnacio,

Thanks, we will look into this further and get back to you. (ZOOM-143799)


Hey @adrian_parnacio, @mongoman30,

This will be fixed in our March / April release.
