Post request keeps asking me "Api Key and secret are required."


#1

I sent this data with the POST Request.

data =
{
api_key: “xxxx”,
api_secret: “xxx”,
data_type: “JSON”,
host_id: “xxxx”,
topic: “Testing!!!”,
type: 2,
start_time: “#{Time.now}”,
duration: 120,
timezone: “#{User.first.timezone}”,
option_host_video: false
}

“x"api_key”:“xxxsomevalue”,“api_secret”:“xxxsomevalue”,“host_id”:“xxx”,“topic”:“Testing!!!”,“type”:2,“start_time”:“2017-05-01 09:40:01 +0900”,“duration”:120,“timezone”:“Asia/Seoul”,“option_host_video”:false}"

Then error code says “api key and secret were not inserted”.

{“error”=>{“code”=>300, “message”=>“Api key and secret are required.”}}

Would you help me on this issue?

I’m looking forward to seeing your reply!

 

 


#2

With Postman, the result is also same. Only API playground works as expected. Would you give me a solution?

Looking forward to seeing your quick reply!

I don’t work for zoom but just did this few weeks ago and you need to first check out their documentation - zoom api’s are quite straightforward to use. 

https://zoom.us/developer/overview/rest-api-basics

get the api key pair and host id from your account - “xxx” is not a valid api key pair - zoom has provided that as an example -) and check out their node.js sample code.

Hi Scott, 

Of course I put the correct API and Secret pair that I got from the credential tab. ( I didn’t want to publicly put my pair on the public website! )

(:

I will checkout the node.js sample code!

 

Thanks for your comment!

Sungpah, you may not be encoding this correctly. Have you set the content-type header ? can you check ?

see the following postman data that works.

Hi Scott! I think you are right.

 

when I changed to www form urlencoded, Post man works.!

 

However, my web code has not worked yet ( Although content type is application/x-www-form-urlencoded ).

Do you have any suggestion? (:

Hi Scott, I found the ruby code from PostMan for the implementation!

Thanks for your comment!!

Hi Scott, thanks for jumping in and helping our community.  We owe you a Zoom T-shirt.

Sungpah, I assume you are good now.

In Terminal on my Mac I do this:

curl -i -X post -H “Content-Type:application/json” https://api.zoom.us/v1/meeting/create?api_key=xxx&api_secret=xxx&data_type=JSON&topic=Topic&type=2&start_time=2017-6-9T20:00:00Z&duration=60&timezone=America/New_York&registration_type=1&option_audio=voip&option_auto_record_type=cloud&host_id=xxx

I get this response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate

Content-Type: application/json;charset=UTF-8

{“error”:{“code”:300,“message”:“Api key and secret are required.”}}

Any idea why the error? I’m using my API key and secret from credentials. Thx
