Zoom API Beginner Help

I am a beginner and I only came from using the mobile SDK. Basically, the mobile SDK for now lacked the functionalities I need such as sharing and downloading a cloud recoding. Since I was told that downloading cloud recording is possible for now in Zoom API, I checked it out. From what I understand in the documents, I need OAuth or JWT as the authentication right? In my end I need the OAuth in getting this one: https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/api-reference/zoom-api/cloud-recording/recordingget

Am I correct that the first thing I need in creating an OAuth app is a web server? Basing from https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/guides/build/oauth-app , it says I need Redirect URL for OAuth and Whitelist URLs.

Hello? Is anyone there?

Hi @dodongp,

Happy to help clarify.

First, I should note that you can use either JWT or OAuth to authenticate your requests to our APIs, including the GET Cloud Recordings endpoint.

For either app type, you’ll need to follow the steps here to create the app and generate credentials.

In order to use OAuth, you will need a functioning redirect URL, but you may develop with this locally and might consider using a tool such as Ngrok to host your local server for this purpose.

Let me know if this helps,

Thank you for the clarification.

I always thought that I need OAuth for this API since it said there in the document that the Authorization is oauth2. I will try for now the JWT before trying to use OAuth. I will go back in this thread to let you know once I tried applying the solution. Thank you once again.
