Developer Accounts

The Zoom API and Meeting SDKs are available to all Pro, Business, and Enterprise accounts with no additional cost.

To start building with Zoom SDKs, you will need to generate access credentials (SDK key & Secret) by creating an SDK App on the Marketplace. Navigate to the Marketplace and click Build App under Develop. Select SDK and click Create. For more information on this setup, reference our Create an SDK App guide.

Developer Roles

To use the Developer Portal on the Zoom Marketplace, an account member must have Developer permission.

Admins and account Owners can provide Developer access to account Members through Role-Based Access Control. Under ‘Advanced Features’, assign a member or group Edit access to “Zoom for developers”.

Test Accounts

Registering and activating any Basic Zoom account will automatically provide free-trial Developer access to the Zoom API and SDKs. Use this free-trial period to test Zoom services and SDK functionality.

Client version compatibility

SDK versions are pegged to the client version of the same version number. This means that if your application is built using SDK version 5.7.6, but your Zoom developer account’s settings specify a minimum client version of 5.7.7, your app will not be usable on that account.

This can be resolved in two ways:

  1. Either disable “Require users to update the client” option or the reduce the minimum required client version to match your application’s SDK version.

  2. Release a new version of your app that is built with the minimum or newer SDK version.

How to update the minimum client version

  1. Navigate to zoom.us

  2. Log in to your your Zoom developer account associated with your SDK app.

  3. Navigate to My Account  >  Account Management  >  Account Settings  >  Admin Options

  4. Either switch the “Require users to update the client” toggle to the off position to disable or change the minimum version number under this setting.

Note that each Pro, Business or Enterprise license allows each user to host one concurrent meeting. Hosting multiple meetings will require multiple licenses. An API Partner License will not need multiple licenses.
