Zoom Webhooks and Uniqueness of User Id

We are developing an app which listens the created&deleted&updated meetings and synchronizes our system accordingly. We are serving multiple number of customers. We want to listen the events in real time and save to our end, however, we are not able to create webhooks programmatically, we usually generate a webhook url for each customer with their unique identifier to distinguish which customer has triggered an event. Zoom allows us to have at most 10 webhooks and they are not programmable, so we have to stick into one URL. Thus, whenever we receive that whenever a customer creates a meeting, we receive a webhook, but we are concerned about the uniqueness of host_id field. Is it unique across all customers in Zoom? So, there is one login associated to host_id

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

Which Endpoint/s?
meeting.created event

Hey @Olut ,

Thanks for reaching out about this, and good question.

To clarify, the host_id field returned within the Meeting Created event is unique across Zoom customers. So, you should be able to use this without an issue. You can also grab the account_id from the webhook payload as well to make sure you’re aware of the customer/end user’s unique account.

Let me know if this helps to clarify,
