Rate limit for meeting creation

The API doc for the meeting creation endpoint says:

This API has a daily rate limit of 100 requests per day. Therefore, only 100 Create a Meeting API requests are permitted within a 24 hour window for a user.

As I’m creating meetings for a multitude of users through an account level JWT app, I now do wonder whether this restriction actually applies on a user level (as the second sentence implies) or on a API level for the JWT app? E.g. if I’m creating meetings for 10 different users, could I create 1000 meetings in total per day, or still just 100 because the API is limited? Also, how exactly is this limit enforced, is it reset at midnight or is it counted in a sliding 24 hour timeframe? Is it possible to have the limit increased?

Background to this question: We’re automatically creating meetings for all teachers for their lectures at our university, which I currently only can do one day in advance (because otherwise I’d hit the 100 meetings limit), and I’d like to do this for the more distant future as well (e.g. one week).

Hey @florian.geiselhart,

It is 100 per user, meaning the user you are creating the meeting for.

It is a 24 hour window, so sliding timeframe.

Only in rare cases do we increase the limit.

Is 1 teacher having 100 classes a day? Do you have a Zoom user for each teacher?


Hey @tommy, thanks for your answer! In this case, we definitely don’t need a limit increase :slight_smile:

We have approx 100 teachers with a licensed Zoom user for each teacher, and we are currently just generating the lectures for the upcoming day (I’d say it’s max 3 to 4 lectures per day per teacher - so when going for a week of meeting creation this makes for ~20 meeting creation requests per user, which is still fine).

I guess we can go for one week then without any problems, so thanks again!
