Zoom Web Meeting SDK v2.8.0 Invalid Signature

Hi, I’m using Web Meeting SDK v2.8.0 to start & join a meeting.
When the page load, its said invalid signature in network tabs(inspect element).
then I tried to resend the request through the network tabs by double-clicking, and it succeed.
but when I reload the page its said invalid signature again. Please help.

Browser Console Error

Response : localJsonpCallback1({“status”:false,“errorCode”:200,“errorMessage”:“Invalid signature.”})

Hi all, please I have been struggling with integrating the zoom web sdk into my website lately. below is the description of the error that I am getting:
When I set the time on my device to GMT(i.e London time) I was able to login as an Attendee after a few trials but when I set the time to my local time (i.e GMT +1) I keep getting “Signature is invalid”.
In either case, if the role is set to host I keep getting “Signature is invalid”.
Please I really need this sdk in my app and will be glad to have this fixed.
Thanks to you all.


Welcome to the Zoom Developer Forum – happy to help. It seems the reason you are getting that issue is because of the timestamp when the token was issued. Double-check that the timestamp is in epoch time and satisfy the rules below :


Thanks for the response, I still get the “signature is invalid” error when I tried to join meeting as a host, but the error disappears when I try to join as an attendee. Please is there a solution to this?

is your meeting created in the same zoom account like the Meeting SDK App?

Thanks so much, it’s working now, I was using meeting credentials from another account. I really appreciate your response.

Glad to hear you were able to resolve the signature is invalid error @sulesanusi1 ! And thank you for your active participation and contributions to the Zoom Developer Forum, @j.schoenemeyer!

Hi, please can you share with me a sample PHP code for generating SDK App type signature? I have not had any success trying to do that from my end.

Thank you for sharing this post on how to generate signatures with PHP @j.schoenemeyer.


Should you have any additional questions, please let us know – we are always happy to help!

Hi, my project is not a laravel based project, is there no way to generate the signature using php’s built in function like hash_hmac?

@sulesanusi1 ,

For a list of libraries you can leverage to generate the signature using PHP, please visit JWT.io libraries for Token Signing/Verification page:

Thanks man, I have already downloaded the firebase library and it’s working fine. Great community, and lots of love from Nigeria.
