These docs are nonsense

I’m following this https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/api-reference/testing-zoom-apis to the letter and it’s still not letting me use the “Send A Test Request” feature. I think the docs are wrong.

This is really frustrating, I’ve been hitting issues every step of the way developing for this platform…

Hey @nuklearfiziks,

Sorry to hear you are having a hard time.

Please be more specific about the issue so we can help. What error message are you seeing?

Thanks,
Tommy

When I make a request and have https://next.stoplight.io/oauth/callback/success set as the callback URL, it says “invalid url”. If I don’t set it, it says the marketplace.zoom.us/oauth/callback/success URL is incorrect. If I set my OAuth app’s redirect URL to the aforementioned marketplace URL, it redirects successfully, but I get a 404 on marketplace and no access token.

I literally had to take the code returned in the URL when using the marketplace callback URL and manually generate a request using cURL to get my token.

What even is next.spotlight?

Edit: It was really really annoying editing this post to get around these forums’ limitation on URLs for new users, so, thanks for that…

Hey @nuklearfiziks,

Please use https://zoom.us as your redirect and whitelist url in your marketplace app settings to send a test request.

Make sure to refresh the page before you try making a request.

Then, just enter your API Client ID and Client Secret into the Send a test Request Popup and click “Get Access Token”.

Thanks,
Tommy

Hi @tommy!

That worked a lot better!!! Any change the docs could get updated with that? As-is it’s probably really frustrating to a lot of users just trying to get started!
