Time limit for meeting storage

Hi everyone!

I was navigating through the API Reference Documentation, and payed attention to the following affirmation: “The expiration time for the start_url object is two hours. For API users, the expiration time is 90 days.”. This phrase is located at https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/api-reference/zoom-api/meetings/meetingcreate, and wondered about the meeting itself. 90 days is the limit for the Zoom API to storage a meeting, it’s recordings, conversations and etc? After that, it will disappear from Zoom API storage for that user account?

Hi @famorim,

When we say API users, we mean by users who have bought our API plan and not Basic/Pro/Business users. What plan do you have now?

You are able to retrieve the cloud recording as long as you do set auto delete within your portal user settings or the API user settings[1].

Let us know if you need anything else.


Hi @Michael_Purnell,

My plan right now is the Basic one.

So, by just setting the correct parameter for the user I can store the recording for how long I want it?

Hi @famorim,

Ok, you plan is different from the API plan, so the exp time for you is two hours. Also, that is correct it will be stored for the time that you set in the user settings.
