Use the owner's userId to create meeting

I’m trying to create a meeting but having a problem with {userId}, I tried me/email/accountId but it returns 200 without any content.

I have read that to get userId i should request it on /users api but the scope of my oauth is limited to creating meetings only.

I am not sure if the problem is the userId or my request. If someone can clarify and point me to the right direction, it will be a big help. Thanks!

This is the body of my request:
“topic” => “test-raymond”
“type” => 2
“start_time” => “2020-12-03T00:00:00Z”
“duration” => 60
“timezone” => “America/Los_Angeles”
“password” => “dzWgcJyo”
“settings” => [▼
“host_video” => false
“participant_video” => false
“cn_meeting” => false
“in_meeting” => false
“join_before_host” => false
“mute_upon_entry” => false
“watermark” => false
“use_pmi” => false
“approval_type” => 1
“registration_type” => 2
“audio” => “both”
“auto_recording” => “none”
“registrants_email_notification” => true

Error code 200 without contents

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

Which Endpoint/s?{userId}/meetings

Hey @momodev19,

Can you confirm that the meeting wasn’t successfully created by verifying in your upcoming meetings in the Zoom UI? A 200 response is a success message, so I’d like to rule out that the meeting wasn’t actually created :slight_smile:


Hi @will.zoom,

The meeting was not created. I’m confused why it returns a 200 when the documentation doesn’t have a 200 response.


Hey @momodev19,

It looks like the endpoint that you are using is incorrect. When creating a meeting for a user, the endpoint should start with /user instead of /meetings. You can see this outlined in the API documentation.

Please try using the endpoint:{userId}/meetings

Let me know if that helps.


Hi @MaxM,

Thank you for pointing that out. I completely missed it. I can now create a meeting via API.
