Deleting a User and transferring Meeting/Recordings via userId

I’ve tried using the Zoom API to delete a user and transfer any meetings/recordings to another user (I’m deduping). I’ve tried using the userId value for the transfer_email parameter (we have some user emails assigned via SSO that fail validation so we can’t reference the account by that field). I have used the userId in place of email in other API calls with success. But in this case, the delete succeeds but the transfer fails silently.

No error, silent failure.

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

Which Endpoint/s?
DELETE /users/{userId}

Hey @robertom

Thanks for posting on the Zoom Devforum! I am still learning, but I will try my best to help answer your question. :slightly_smiling_face:

That thread doesn’t really address the issue. But the issue will be moot soon since we are migrating our account into an enterprise account.


Hey @robertom,

Can you please provide steps to reproduce the issue including the query params you are using?
