Meeting Title Character Limit

I’m getting an error when I try to create a meeting with a topic longer than 200 characters. The API docs
don’t say anything about a length limit on the title. Is this an error in the Zoom API? If not, you should document this limit. The Zoom client doesn’t let me create a meeting with a title longer than 128 characters, so I’m not sure how I should be limiting my input.

In addition to this limit being undocumented, the error message doesn’t really help. It would be much more helpful if the API returned an error message more specific than “Invalid field.” The field could be invalid for any number of reasons, but I have to figure out the reason on my own.

{"code": 300, "message": "Validation Failed.", "errors": [{"field": "topic", "message": "Invalid field." }]}

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

Which Endpoint/s?

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Make POST request to /users/{userId}/meetings with a topic longer than 200 characters
  2. See error

Hey @douglasw,

Thanks for pointing this out. @shrijana.g, can you add this limit to the docs?

We will also work on improving the error message.
