Laravel Zoom API Package

Support us

We invest a lot in creating open source packages, and would be grateful for a sponsor if you make money from your product that uses them.

Our API mission!

Let's be honest, API's are all over the place and so inconsistent. We are therefore setting out to try to change this for all Laravel user's who need an API client and have developed an API Client Library, which our API's are built on top of, to give a common set of consistent functionality.

Updates & Issues

We only accept Issues through Github

We update security and bug fixes as soon as we can, other pull requests and enhancements will be as and when we can do them.

You can follow us on Twitter where we will post any major updates. MacsiDigital Twitter


You can install the package via composer:

composer require macsidigital/laravel-zoom

For versioning:-

  • 1.0 - deprecated - was a quick build for a client project, not recommended you use this version.

  • 2.0 - Laravel 5.5 - 5.8 - deprecated, no longer maintained

  • 3.0 - Laravel 6.0 - Maintained, feel free to create pull requests. This is open source which is a 2 way street.

  • 4.0 - Laravel 7.0 - 8.0 - Maintained, feel free to create pull requests. This is open source which is a 2 way street.

Configuration file

Publish the configuration file

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="MacsiDigital\Zoom\Providers\ZoomServiceProvider"

This will create a zoom.php config file within your config directory:-

return [
    'apiKey' => env('ZOOM_CLIENT_KEY'),
    'apiSecret' => env('ZOOM_CLIENT_SECRET'),
    'baseUrl' => '',
    'token_life' => 60 * 60 * 24 * 7, // In seconds, default 1 week
    'authentication_method' => 'jwt', // Only jwt compatible at present
    'max_api_calls_per_request' => '5' // how many times can we hit the api to return results for an all() request

You need to add ZOOM_CLIENT_KEY and ZOOM_CLIENT_SECRET into your .env file.

Also note the tokenLife, there were numerous users of the old API who said the token expired to quickly, so we have set for a longer lifeTime by default and more importantly made it customisable.

That should be it.


Everything has been set up to be similar to Laravel syntax. So hopefully using it will be similar to Eloquent, right down to relationships.

Unfortunately the Zoom API is not very uniform and is a bit all over the place. But we have hopefully made this uniform and logical. However you will still need to read the Zoom documentation to know what is and isn't possible.

At present we cover the following modules

  • Users
  • Roles
  • Meetings
  • Past Meetings
  • Webinars
  • Past Webinars
  • Recordings

Doesn't look like a lot but Meetings and Webinars are the 2 big modules and includes, polls, registration questions, registrants, panelists and various other relationships.

Also note that some of the functionality is only available to certain plan types. Check the Zoom documentation.


To get an access point you can simply create a new instance and the resource.

    $user = Zoom::user();

Accessing models

There are 2 main ways to work with models, to call them directly from the access entry point via a facade, or to call them in the standard php 'new' method and pass in the access entry point

    $user = Zoom::user();

    $zoom = new \MacsiDigital\Zoom\Support\Entry;
    $user = new \MacsiDigital\Zoom\User($zoom);

Custom settings

If you would like to use different configuration values than those in your zoom.php config file, you can feed those as parameters to \MacsiDigital\Zoom\Support\Entry as shown below.

    $zoom = new \MacsiDigital\Zoom\Support\Entry($apiKey, $apiSecret, $tokenLife, $maxQueries, $baseUrl);

Working with models

As noted we are aiming for functionality similar to Laravel, so most things that you can do in Laravel you can do here, with exception to any database specific functionality, as we are not using databases.

    $user = Zoom::user()->create([...]);

    $user = Zoom::user()->find(...);

    $users = Zoom::user()->all();

    $meetings = Zoom::user()->find(...)->meetings;

    // Even this
    $user = Zoom::user()->find(...); 
    $meeting = Zoom::meeting()->make([...]);

Each model may also have some custom functions where Zoom has some unique functionality. We try to list all this below, under Resources.

    $user = Zoom::user()->create([...]);

    $user->updateProfilePicture($image); // Path to image

Common get functions


We utilise the first function to return the first record from the record set. This will return an instantiated model.

    $user = Zoom::user()->where('status', 'active')->first();


We utilise the find function to return a record by searching for it by a unique attribute. This will return an instantiated model.

    $user = Zoom::user()->find('id');


    $user = Zoom::user()->find('');

    // for most models this is only the id.  The past models utilise the uuid instead of the id.


The find all function returns a customised Laravel Collection, which we call a resultset.

  $users = Zoom::user()->all();

When calling the all function we will make up to 5 API calls to retrieve all the data, so 5 x 300 records (the max allowed), i.e. up to 1500 records per request. This can be amended in the config by updating 'max_api_calls_per_request'.

More info below in ResultSets.


We utilise the get function when we want to retrieve filtered records. Note that Zoom doesn't offer much in the way of filters. So check the documentation.

    $users = Zoom::user()->where('status', 'active')->get();

    // We can also pass
    $users = Zoom::user()->where('status', '=', 'active')->get();

When using the get call we will automatically paginate results, which by default is 30 records. You can increase/decrease this by calling the paginate function.

    $users = Zoom::user()->where('status', 'active')->paginate(100)->get(); // will return 100 records

You can disable the pagination, so it behaves the same as the all() function

    $users = Zoom::user()->where('status', 'active')->setPaginate(false)->setPerPage(300)->get(); // will return 300 records * 5 request (or amount set in config) = 1500 records


The all and get functions return a resultSet which is an enhanced Laravel Collection. Like collections, we can call the toArray and toJson functions, which places the data in a 'data' field and adds some meta information on total records and page information.

    // toArray()
    array:5 [
        "current_page" => 1
        "data" => array:5 [
            0 => array:11 [
              "uuid" => "...."
              "id" => ....

        "last_page" => 1
        "per_page" => 1500
        "total" => 5

There are a few additional helper functions.

If our data set is larger than the returned records then we call the nextPage() function to return the next page of records.


We can then also navigate back a page by calling the previousPage() function. When doing this we will return cached results rather than querying the API.


There is also a function to accumulate more records, if you call the getNextRecords() function it will retrieve the next 1500 results and add them to the current records, so you can then run through 3000 records if required.


It is not advisable to mix the page navigation with the accumulating records function.

There are also a number of helper functions.

    $meetings->firstPage(); // returns first page number which in this case will always be 1
    $meetings->perPage(); // returns how many results we return per page

As noted above we are using collections as the base for the record sets, so anything that is possible in collections is possible here. As Zoom's ability to filter is limited we can use the collections 'where' function for example.

Persisting Models

Again, the aim is to be similar to laravel, so you can utilise the save, create, update and make methods.


To save a model we will use the save method, this will determine if the model is a new model or an existing and insert or update the model as needed.

    $user = Zoom::user()->find('id');

    $user->first_name = 'changed';



Currently, only the User model and Role model can be created directly, most other models need to be created as part of a relationship, see below for details.

To create a user.

        'first_name' => 'First Name',
        'last_name' => 'Last Name',
        'email' => '',
        'password' => 'secret'
    // will return the created model so you can capture it if required.
    $user = Zoom::user()->create([
        'first_name' => 'First Name',
        'last_name' => 'Last Name',
        'email' => '',
        'password' => 'secret'


Make is similar to create except it will not persist the model to the API. This is handy for relationship models, more on this below.

    $meeting = Zoom::meeting()->make([...]); 



We can also mass update attributes.

    $user = Zoom::user()->find('id')->update(['field' => 'value', 'another_field' => 'value']);


A major change to the newer versions of our API client is we use Relationships similar to Laravel. To retrieve all meetings associated to a user we would call like so.

    $meetings = Zoom::user()->find(...)->meetings;

In the Zoom API some relationships get returned direct with the parent model, some we have to make additional API calls for (this is worthwhile knowing for performance reasons and API rate limits).

Its also worth pointing out that we are returning the resultset by calling ->meetings. If we call the function ->meetings() we receive the relationship object which can be further queried.

    $meetings = Zoom::user()->find(...)->settings(); // Returns HasOne relationship model

    $meetings = Zoom::user()->find(...)->meetings(); // Returns HasMany relationship model

The later is handy when we need to filter results

    $meetings = Zoom::user()->find(...)->meetings()->where('type', 'scheduled')->get();

As noted above, Zoom has very limited queryable filters, so check with the Zoom documentation.

Save & Create

We can utilise the create and save functions on the relationship model to create models that require a relationship.

    // Save Method

    $meeting = Zoom::meeting()->make([...]); 

    // Create Method


We can also utilise the Make and Attach methods for creating and attaching models to a parent without persisting the model. This is handy for attaching sub models that need to save as part of the parent.

    // Create Method

    $meeting = Zoom::user()->find('id')->meetings()->make([...]); 

    $meeting->recurrence()->make([...]); // will attach to parent but not persist

    $meeting->save() // will save meeting and the attached recurrence model.

    // Attach Method

    $meeting = Zoom::meeting()->create([...]); 

    $recurrence = Zoom::meeting()->recurrence()->make([...]);
    $meeting->attach($recurrence);  // will attach to parent but not persist

    $meeting->save() // will save meeting and the attached recurrence model.

    // The later is very uncommon in Zoom and unlikely to be used due to the setup of relationships, but is an option.


Validation is built into the API where possible, and will throw an exception if there are validation errors. If our own validation fails and the Zoom request returns an error, then we will throw a HTTP exception.

If Validation in the API changes or something is not working, then the best is to amend the request object for the failing model and submit a pull request.


We give a brief overview of the common models, we have not included any validation requirements, you will need to check documentation for this.


    //To get a new instance

    // available retrieve functions
    $role->find($id); // by id

    // No available queries

    // Relationships
    $role->members // HasMany relationship, returns all users with role
    $role->privileges // hasOne relationship, list of all privileges

    // Special functions
    // Assign and remove role from users

    // delete
    $role->delete(); // Delete (destroy) role.


This is the main access for most models in Zoom.

    //To get a new instance

    // available retrieve functions
    Zoom::user()->find(''); // by id or email

    // Available queries
    Zoom::user()->where('type', 'active')->get(); // Allowed values active, inactive and pending

    // disassociate & delete
    $user->disassociate(); // Disassociate from current account, user can still login to their own account.
    $user->delete(); // Delete (destroy) user.

    //To get a new instance

    // can only be retrieved through a user

    // To get sub relations then call the relationship of the setting

    // To update a setting
