Zoom API Create Meeting API Rate Limit

Reading the docs from Create a Meeting, there is a rate limit of 100 requests a day.

This API has a daily rate limit of 100 requests per day. Therefore, only 100 Create a Meeting API requests are permitted within a 24 hour window for a user.

I was wondering what this truly means.

We have Web application for our instructors and students to meet/learn on. We want the instructors to go to the web app and be able to create a new meeting for the students to join (possibly in a iframe).

We have a custom middleware that is going to take the instructor request on the web app hit the Zoom API to create meeting and serve the meeting to the instructor in the web app.

All instructors will have a Zoom Pro sub-account under our Account and the instructors will not be needing to make close to 100 meetings a day.

Does this sound feasible? in the sense that we should not hit the rate limit?

Can the custom middleware make the create meeting on the Zoom user’s behalf and the rate limit apply to the user not to the Zoom account that the middleware is using?

Which Endpoint/s?


Hi @besteman, thanks for posting & using Zoom!

This is feasible. This daily limit is tracked at the userID, or, the host of the meeting. If your application is using the API to schedule meetings, it will only be able to do so 100 times per user, per day. To contrast, it will not be limited to only using 100 API calls for multiple users.
