The Zoom Meeting Virtualmeeting plugin allows trainers to create an ad hoc room that will automatically generate a scheduled Zoom Meeting for any seminar session with which it is associated. The start meeting and join meeting URLs are available to admins and trainers at any time. The join meeting URL is revealed to booked learners beginning 15 minutes before the session starts.
To enable the plugin, you will need to create an OAuth app in Zoom Marketplace, and set the App ID and Client Secret in the Zoom Virtualmeeting plugin settings.
Zoom API Limitations
There are a few limitations to the Zoom API and, consequently, to the Zoom Meeting plugin:
The Create Meeting API can be used a maximum of 100 times per user in a 24 hour period. This means that a user can only assign a Zoom virtual meeting room to 100 seminar sessions per day, before those assignments will start to fail virtual meeting creation.
The Update Meeting API can be used a maximum of 100 times per user in a 24 hour period. This means that a user can only edit 100 seminar sessions with a Zoom virtual meeting room assigned per day, before those sessions will start to fail virtual meeting update.
Private Zoom apps can only be used by other users in the same account. If your use case requires trainers to schedule Zoom Meetings using a different company account, you will either need to publish your app to the Zoom Marketplace, or start the publishing process and request access for one or more specific accounts.
Capacity of Zoom rooms is limited by user licence type. Pro accounts are limited to 100 participants.
Please note that if virtual meeting creation/update fails due to rate limits the user can wait 24 hours, edit the seminar event, and click Save changes (without making any changes) to retry any pending virtual meeting operations.
To set up the Zoom Meeting Virtualmeeting plugin you will need to meet the following requirements:
A Zoom Pro or Business licence
A Zoom admin account, or a Zoom user account with permission to create apps in the marketplace
