App Only Tokens with OAuth

Is there a way to get an app only token for Zoom using oauth? By “app only”, I mean only using a client ID and secret - no user interaction, no code. I see no examples or “how to” in the code; only a suggestion that you should consider using JWT for server to server apps (which is where you typically use an app only token).

No error message; just looking for validation.

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Which Endpoint/s?
Not endpoint specific.

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
No steps - just looking for validation - either it doesn’t work, or a link to documentation for how to do it.

Screenshots (If applicable)
Not applicable.

Additional context

Hi @speschka,

Good question—at this time, it’s not possible to retrieve an OAuth access_token without end user authorization/interaction. However, we hope to offer something like this in the future.

For now, the only way to have a direct server-to-server connection would be to utilize JWT authorization.


Gotcha, appreciate the quick response Will.


Glad I could help :slight_smile:
