Hi Sheethal,

 

 you need to create a user in Zoom platform only if that user is hosting a meeting. Joining a meeting doesn’t need user accounts in Zoom.

With that, your flow would be:

 

  1. get the account api key pair

  2. create at least one user  (assuming that you want that user to be the host of the meeting) - https://api.zoom.us/v1/user/create

          a. save the user id

          b. user account needs to be e-mail activated - if you don’t want your users to do that, check out custcreate/autocreate

 

  3. create a meeting -  https://api.zoom.us/v1/meeting/create

          a. save the start and join url

 

  4. when its time to start or join the meeting, just launch the url.

 

These are basic steps and you have a number of meeting options you can set in meeting create API.  I suggest that you download check out the sample code at https://github.com/zoomvideo/Nodejs.
