I’m working on an application which requires to create multiple Zoom meeting links, for different people. Currently when I create the zoom links using the API, some of the IDs generated are the same, so a person could have two different events in two different days with the same ID and that could generate problems. Is there a condition for zoom to guaranty generation of always a different ID? Like a different topic, or start_date, etc. I would like for this meetings to be recurring because the people are going to come in and out of the events across multiple days.
When you creating the zoom meetings are they recurring meetings with type 3/8 or are you creating the meetings with Scheduled with type 2?
Thanks for providing us the info. What you could do is this.
After you create your recurring meeting, you can take the occurrence_ID that you get from Retrieve a meeting API
Then you can add the query parameter occurrence_ID to the update meeting API.
Hope this helps, let us know if you have any more questions!
This is great, how do I add new occurrence to an already existing meeting 3/8.
Do I first patch the recurrence and then update an occurrence, or is there a better way ?
To add an additional occurrence to an existing meeting you will need to change either the endtimes or end_date_time property.

Meeting ID of occurrences are changing. Why ? I want to stay them the same,
If this is in reference to a recurring meeting, each occurrence of a recurring meeting will have its own unique UUID. However, you can identify occurrences in a series by their shared Meeting ID.
Let me know if this helps!
Hi you have mentioned that a recurring meeting has a shared Meeting ID but also has a unique UUID.
Can we use this UUID to record the attendance of participants to a specific session within the recurring meeting. if so can you help with the documentation or guide me to the specific person who can explain this.
You can get past participants for a specific instance of a recurring meeting by calling this API and specifying the UUID of the past occurrence:
If you need the UUIDs for a given meeting ID, you can first call:
