I'm getting "Request Body should be a valid JSON object."


Hi for all.

Im getting this error and i cant fix it.

Im using firebase/php-jwt for generating the token successfully.

Im using guzzle/guzzle as php client.

You can see my code here.

$url = sprintf('https://api.zoom.us/v2/users/%s/meetings', $this-\>user);
$response = $this-\>guzzle-\>request(
 'body' =\> json\_encode(
 'topic' =\> 'Prueba de Reunión 1',
 'type' =\> 2,
 'start\_time' =\> $date-\>format('Y-m-d\TH:i:s'),
 'duration' =\> 45,
 'timezone' =\> 'Europe/Madrid',
 'agenda' =\> 'Prueba de Reunión 1',
 'settings' =\>
 'host\_video' =\> true,
 'participant\_video' =\> true,
 'join\_before\_host' =\> true,
 'mute\_upon\_entry' =\> 'boolean',
 'watermark' =\> 'boolean',
 'audio' =\> 'voip',
 'auto\_recording' =\> 'cloud',
 'headers' =\> [
 'Content-Type'=\> 'application/json',
 'Authorization' =\> ['Bearer '.$this-\>token],

This is the details of request in our profiler.

Have someone any idea that what thing we are doing wrong?





Hi Daniel, 

Within your body that you are sending, can you change the values of mute_upon_entry & watermark to either true or false? That should work afterwards. 

"mute_upon_entry": "boolean",
        "watermark": "boolean",






Those two properties either set to ‘True’ or ‘False’ or remove if you think they are not required, should fix the issue.
