Create new ZOOM meeting in a web app

Hi Gurus,
I have a very basic question. I have a javascript program in which, I plan to call ZOOM API to create ZOOM meeting. Therefore i need to generate token by using client id and client secret.

It is a bit doesn’t make sense for me to create an ZOOM app to get the client id and client secret. coz. i do not have a domain and I do not intend to publish any kind of ZOOM authentication app to anyone. I just want to create ZOOM meeting via API in my javascript program by using my user registered.

Can i know if there is a way?


Hi @alex.xizhi.xue,

If you will just be hitting our APIs from within your own Zoom account, you can use a JWT app instead of OAuth. You can use JWT credentials to authenticate requests to our API.

To generate API credentials using a JWT app, you can follow the steps here to create a JWT app, which will provide you with an API key and secret:

Let me know if this helps,

cheers Will. i will try it later
