How to generate Zoom Access Token valid for more than 24 hours

Hello There,

We need to generate the Zoom Access Token that can be valid for more than 24 hours. We are using this api to get the zak.{userId}/token?type=zak

According to below article, the token is valid for 2 hours only.

" ZAKs have an expiration time of 2 hours, from the time of the response. Accounts with “API User” members have expiration times of 90 days."

This 90 days case is not clear to me, please explain.


Hi @namrata, thanks for the post.

Since the ZAK is retrieved from the API, I would recommend posting this in #api-and-webhooks so that one of my extremely knowledgeable colleagues can assist you with your usage of our REST API. :slightly_smiling_face:


Updated. Hope to get a helpful reply soon.

Hi @namrata,

ZAK tokens will need to be refreshed by making a new request, if it’s over 2 hours since it was generated. To clarify, the 90 day expiration is specific to our custCreate user types, which is functionality that is exclusive to our ISV/API Partners.

Let me know if this helps to clarify,

Sorry for late reply @will.zoom. Your reply is clear to me.

Glad I could help, @namrata!
