Zoom API integration - Working in postman but not in code

Description
We are trying to integrate the zoom api to our application. When i tried to get Oauth access token from my application and getting an error

Error
Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

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

Which Endpoint/s?
https://zoom.us/oauth/token?grant_type=authorization_code&code=code&redirect_uri=url

Please help me solving this asap

Hey @Suresh,

This sounds like an issue with your environment. Have you tried googling the error?

Thanks,
Tommy

Thanks Tommy for you response… yes i have fixed that issue now it is working at my development environment too…

I have few queries regarding the Zoom meeting link creation API,

  1. https://zoom.us/j/587818232?pwd=pwdstring” despite the meeting invitee using the join url - the invitee is logging in as the host … why is this behavior?

  2. when i put the contact name and the contact email address - will the invitee while joining the meeting - should it not be defaulting the contact name of the invitee.

  3. when the contact name and the email is provided, should not the invitee get the invite with the join url in the email as well?

  4. We have created 2 zoom meetings for same host.

a. Host has started the first meeting.

b. Invitee for first meeting also has joined.

c. On the other hand the invitee of second meeting is trying to join, that time it is saying

“You have a meeting that is currently in-progress.Please end it to start a new meeting”. why it is not allowing the other meeting invitee to join a new meeting?

Regards,

Suresh

Hey @Suresh,

Glad to hear you fixed the original issue! :slight_smile:

They will only login as the host if you share the start_url. Make sure you are sharing the join_url with participants.

I am assuming you are using meeting registration? If so, yes.

Yes, they will get the join_url which has a token attached that includes their name.

To run 2 meetings at the same time, you will need to have 2 meeting hosts.

Thanks,
Tommy

We are sharing join_url only you can see the join_url and start_url mentioned below… even if we use join_url it is logging in as host, i think its not the behavior before it has changed in recent time.

join_url -> Join our Cloud HD Video Meeting now

start_url -> https://zoom.us/s/743575640?zak=eyJ6bV9za20iOiJ6bV9vMm0iLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.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.EHODpwcLNYdumSSRITwnpQGp_4wMSFwc6lpgVVI25Zc

No we are using creating meeting API. Should we use meeting registration instead?

alt Suresh:

Yes, they will get the join_url which has a token attached that includes their name.

Ok, we will try using the meeting registration API.

Thanks Tommy for the update, I think this must be a recent update.

Actually, we are providing an EMR solution for healthcare… here we have a scenario that a doctor will be the host and two or more different meeting will be shared with patients… While doctor consults patient-1 on one meeting before the meeting gets end patient-2 can joins another meeting. this can happen in real scenario, how can we handle it? Pls suggest

Thanks,

Hey @Suresh,

Can you reply back via the devforum?

Your post is malformed and hard to follow.

Hey @Suresh,

This is probably happening due to the Join Before Host setting. Do you have this turned on?

Patient 2 will be admitted into the meeting once the meeting with Patient 1 is over.
