Hello. I’m a new Zoom API user and I’m trying to set up OAuth for server-to-server communications to use the API to do some relatively simple things (at first) like getting a report of inactive hosts for our account and then deleting them. This is all automated system-to-system stuff (no actual physical user, no return_uri, etc.) that might run, say, once a month.
I have created the account-level OAuth application with a return_uri of https://zoom.us (this was suggested in a similar topic).
My first attempt was to to simply try to request an access token like this (with my base64 encoded client_id:client_secret using Basic Authorization in the header):
curl -X POST 'https://zoom.us/oauth/token?grant_type=authorization_code&redirect_uri=https://zoom.us' -H 'Authorization: Basic <base 64 encoded credentials here>’
But I gather that is not valid since it needs a code?
So, I tried to get one of those via the user auth request like this:
curl -X POST 'https://zoom.us/oauth/authorize?response_type=code&redirect_uri=https://zoom.us&client_id=<client id goes here>'
So, clearly I’m doing something wrong and there is a gap in my understanding. The docs appear to lean heavily towards using OAuth for manual user-authenticated flows. But I’m looking to automate the whole process.
