Using REST API to add registrants to webinar in other account


#1

We will be capturing contact info for people who want to attend a webinar and we would like to post this information by adding registrants to a webinar.  The API looks fairly straightforward for this activity with the exception of authentication.

If this was our account, I think I understand how this works but this will be for our customer’s accounts.

The flow will be:

we receive the contact info via our website and post to our database

we submit the same info into the webinar registrant list using: https://zoom.github.io/api/#add-a-webinar-registrant

Having not worked with the API yet, it may be I don’t understand the authentication and token model  but the REST API part seems straightforward.

Any help you can give would be appreciated as I need to get this working over the weekend.

Thanks

Hi Glenn, 

Our version 2 API uses JWT (JSON Web Tokens) for authentication. The steps to get started with your app and authentication is listed here https://developer.zoom.us/docs/api/ under get started. 

  1. You can signup for an account. 
  2. Get your API Key & Secret.
  3. You can use a site like jwt.io to generate a token to call the API’s. Here is a blog post with an example of how to use it with postman. https://developer.zoom.us/blog/using-zoom-apis-version-2-with-postman/

Let us know if you have any other questions.
