Zoom URL Scheme 'stype'

I can see that an ‘stype’ parameter is required in the Zoom URL when starting a meeting (not required when joining). I am unsure how to get this ‘stype’ from the Zoom API

The stype is documented here

But there is no documentation on where to retrieve this information.

Additional context
I wasn’t sure where this question belongs on the dev forum.


Hey @hunter.steele2,

That just means how the user created their account. You can see it on your Zoom profile.

Due note this field is not returned from the Get User API.


Hi, thanks for your reply.

Is there any way to get it on the client so I can form my own start meeting url?

Hey @hunter.steele2,

Unfortunately no, you have to get it on the Zoom Profile.
