Cannot delete cloud recordings

When I try to delete a recording, I do not get any errors but the recording does no get delete using NODEJS

I’m using the OAuth for authentication

Which Endpoint/s?${meetingId}/recording?action=trash

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Request URL / Headers (without credentials) / Body
  2. See error

This the code calling the endpoint

exports.deleteRecording = asyncHandler(async (req, res, next) => {
const { meetingId } = req.params;
const { token } = req.body;
const url =${meetingId}/recording?action=trash;
try {
const zoomResponse = await axios.delete(url, undefined, {
headers: {
authorization: Bearer ${token},
if (zoomResponse.status !== 204) {
return next(new ErrorResponse(“Recording Could not be deleted”));
if (zoomResponse.status === 204) {
return res.status(200).json({
success: true,
message: “Recording deleted”,
} catch (error) {
return next(new ErrorResponse(“An error occured”, 500));

Hey @ppo,

Thank you for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum. Please send an email to with a link to this thread. In that email, please include the full request URL that you’re using - including the meeting ID.
