Timezone for date filters on /users/{userId}/recordings

Right now, the documentation for /users/{userId}/recordings doesn’t seem to indicate the timezone that’s applied when the ‘from’ and ‘to’ query parameters are applied. From my testing, it looks like these are interpreted as from = date specified, 00:00 UTC and to = date specific, 23:59 UTC, but can I please get confirmation or can this information please be added to the documentation? Also, is there a reason why this is not localized to the user’s setting, given that https://zoom.us/recording displays meetings automatically based on the user’s timezone settings? In general, are date/time related query parameters for API endpoints for Zoom in UTC when not specified?

No error, clearer documentation would be helpful.

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Which Endpoint/s?


Hey @mokutsu,

When passing in to and from query params to the Zoom API, they are always processed as UTC.

We will add this to the docs CC @shrijana.g

As for viewing recordings in the Zoom Web Portal, it will display them in your current timezone.

Typically with all APIs, the time is received and sent in UTC by the server side, then converted on the client side to the users respective timezone. :slight_smile:
