Zoom Rooms API - Start Meeting Endpoint

API Endpoint(s) and/or Zoom API Event(s)

I’m looking for an API end point that does the same thing as the ‘New Meeting’ button on a Zoom Rooms Controller. All it would do is start an unscheduled meeting, and provide a Meeting ID and passcode in a response body.

The best workaround I can come up with would be to schedule a meeting for the current time, and then join that meeting. Wondering if I’m missing something here, or what that might be.

@patrickgi ,

You are right. This is one of the easiest ways to do it. You can also pass meeting_type as “1”, if you want to create an instant meeting for a current time. Passing an empty payload also creates a meeting for current time using default settings from your zoom.us account.
