Creating Web app using React and integrating Zoom


Hope you are doing well!

I need help and clarity in integrating Zoom with an existing react web app. I see there are many ways to do so however, I am interested in using the web SDK.
I have created an app on the marketplace and I have the key and secret for authentication. I want any user that login to my app can start, schedule, and join meetings with their own credential and
not the one with which I have created the app. I can start meeting with the same account and for the same user but I want other users to could do the same which I am not sure what is the appropriate way to do it.
Will you please provide me with the steps to follow and links and documents to achieve the same? I mean is it right to use web SDK for my objective, and if I am using the WebSDK will I need the API and what authentication should I do OAuth or JWT?

I hope you could help me with my question at the earliest and please let me know if you would like to know something from my end.

Thank you!

Hey @bearishfh,

Thank you for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum. If you wish to embed Zoom on your site or app, you will likely want to use a combination of our APIs (for creating and scheduling live meetings) and our Web SDK (for embedding the Zoom Meeting/video experience on your site/app).

I’ll note that the Web SDK uses the credentials from your JWT App so you wouldn’t be able to host a meeting on behalf of another user unless they directly provided you with their JWT credentials which we advise against.

Details below on each of these.

API and SDK Overview
We offer both APIs and SDKs for you to consider when planning an integration/implementation in an application. You may find the below information helpful for your web developer.

Here are some APIs that you can consider using within your application:
Create Meetings: To create a meeting (including instant meetings)
List Meetings: To Display the schedule Meetings
Retrieve Meeting: To get a specific meeting

Some additional tips:
Once the meeting is created you can send the “start_url” to the hosts and “join_url” to the participants.
To get a list of past meeting participants, you can use this endpoint.
To display live meetings you can use the meeting started webhook.

To get real-time participant events, please use: and

You can find our webhook meeting events here and a list of all our APIs here.

We also have a Web SDK that you can consider integrating into your website:

Authentication Methods
We have two authentication types:

JSON Web Token (JWT):
JWT is an account-wide app and is available to all the admins and owners of the account. You can have only 1 JWT marketplace app registered in your account. You can generate multiple JWT tokens using the JWT keys, and the tokens operate independently of each other until expired or the credentials have been changed.

A JWT token will contain all the permissions, and there is no way to restrict it. A JWT token is only valid for your account.

To know more, please visit:

OAuth 2.0:
You can use an OAuth App if you want to have limited permissions for your token. To set up access credentials and request scopes for your app, create an OAuth app on the Marketplace. Follow the Create an OAuth App guide for a full walkthrough.
OAuth2 endpoints are located at

Depending on the App type (Account Level or User Managed), the app needs to be authorized by either the account admin or the user. To know more, please visit:
