Recording.Viewed Event Doesn't Fire

Hi there,

We’ve set up an app to send a webhook message when a recording has been viewed.
The documentation for this webhook is listed here: Zoom API Events - Meeting

What we’re finding is that even though a recording is viewed, and it’s being marked as viewed within the Zoom UI, it’s not firing the webhook.

To test this, we added 2 events to the app:

  • View registrant has registered
  • Recording viewed

When we test both cases, only the first event fires. Is there something we’re missing for the recording viewed event that would trigger this?

Hi @devops2

Thanks for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum, I am happy to help here!
Allow me some time to test this issue on my end and I will come back to you with an update


Hi @devops2
Could you please confirm that this is an on-demand webinar. And that you have all the prerequisites listed in the docs?


Hi Elisa, thanks for the response. Yes, I can confirm that we have a Pro plan, cloud recording is enabled and we’ve followed the instructions listed in the on-demand doc.

Thanks @devops2
Could you please try again and confirm if you are still not getting the events please?
If this is the case, feel free to open a ticket with Support here:


Hi Elisa, I’ve already sent in a support ticket, who have suggested that I create a developer forum post. For your reference, the ticket number is 13678135.

Thanks @devops2
I will look into it
