How to integrate Zoom Meeting APIs with Laravel
Zoom Marketplace is providing APIs to create zoom meeting direct using the web interface and calling its API. So first of you need to create your zoom ap into zoom marketplace and need to generate the API Keys and credentials.

Create a Zoom Application
  1. Go to Zoom marketplace and do sign in
  2. Click Develop button on header and select Build App menu.
  3. Choose the JWT and create an application with the app name that you want.
  4. Input required information and click Continue until your app will be activated. 
I hope you already have installed fresh laravel. now you have to add the following packages to your composer.json  to integrate the zoom API.

composer require firebase/php-jwt
composer require guzzlehttp/guzzle
And Now run composer update

And don't forget that we also need to modify .env files to set the zoom API credentials.

ZOOM_API_URL="https://api.zoom.us/v2/"
ZOOM_API_KEY="INPUT_YOUR_ZOOM_API_KEY"
ZOOM_API_SECRET="INPUT_YOUR_ZOOM_API_SECRET"

You can find the zoom credentials from your zoom app.

Now just copy given ZoomMeetingTrait to your controller and call-related methods.

<?php

namespace
App\Traits;

use GuzzleHttp\Client;
use Log;

/**
 * trait ZoomMeetingTrait
 */
trait
ZoomMeetingTrait
{
    public $client;
    public $jwt;
    public $headers;

    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->client = new Client();
        $this->jwt = $this->generateZoomToken();
        $this->headers = [
            'Authorization' => 'Bearer '.$this->jwt,
            'Content-Type'  => 'application/json',
            'Accept'        => 'application/json',
        ];
    }
    public function generateZoomToken()
    {
        $key = env('ZOOM_API_KEY', '');
        $secret = env('ZOOM_API_SECRET', '');
        $payload = [
            'iss' => $key,
            'exp' => strtotime('+1 minute'),
        ];

        return \Firebase\JWT\JWT::encode($payload, $secret, 'HS256');
    }

    private function retrieveZoomUrl()
    {
        return env('ZOOM_API_URL', '');
    }

    public function toZoomTimeFormat(string $dateTime)
    {
        try {
            $date = new \DateTime($dateTime);

            return $date->format('Y-m-d\TH:i:s');
        } catch (\Exception $e) {
            Log::error('ZoomJWT->toZoomTimeFormat : '.$e->getMessage());

            return '';
        }
    }

    public function create($data)
    {
        $path = 'users/me/meetings';
        $url = $this->retrieveZoomUrl();

        $body = [
            'headers' => $this->headers,
            'body'    => json_encode([
                'topic'      => $data['topic'],
                'type'       => self::MEETING_TYPE_SCHEDULE,
                'start_time' => $this->toZoomTimeFormat($data['start_time']),
                'duration'   => $data['duration'],
                'agenda'     => (! empty($data['agenda'])) ? $data['agenda'] : null,
                'timezone'     => 'Asia/Kolkata',
                'settings'   => [
                    'host_video'        => ($data['host_video'] == "1") ? true : false,
                    'participant_video' => ($data['participant_video'] == "1") ? true : false,
                    'waiting_room'      => true,
                ],
            ]),
        ];

        $response =  $this->client->post($url.$path, $body);

        return [
            'success' => $response->getStatusCode() === 201,
            'data'    => json_decode($response->getBody(), true),
        ];
    }
   
    public function update($id, $data)
    {
        $path = 'meetings/'.$id;
        $url = $this->retrieveZoomUrl();

        $body = [
            'headers' => $this->headers,
            'body'    => json_encode([
                'topic'      => $data['topic'],
                'type'       => self::MEETING_TYPE_SCHEDULE,
                'start_time' => $this->toZoomTimeFormat($data['start_time']),
                'duration'   => $data['duration'],
                'agenda'     => (! empty($data['agenda'])) ? $data['agenda'] : null,
                'timezone'     => 'Asia/Kolkata',
                'settings'   => [
                    'host_video'        => ($data['host_video'] == "1") ? true : false,
                    'participant_video' => ($data['participant_video'] == "1") ? true : false,
                    'waiting_room'      => true,
                ],
            ]),
        ];
        $response =  $this->client->patch($url.$path, $body);

        return [
            'success' => $response->getStatusCode() === 204,
            'data'    => json_decode($response->getBody(), true),
        ];
    }
   
    public function get($id)
    {
        $path = 'meetings/'.$id;
        $url = $this->retrieveZoomUrl();
        $this->jwt = $this->generateZoomToken();
        $body = [
            'headers' => $this->headers,
            'body'    => json_encode([]),
        ];

        $response =  $this->client->get($url.$path, $body);

        return [
            'success' => $response->getStatusCode() === 204,
            'data'    => json_decode($response->getBody(), true),
        ];
    }

    /**
     *
@param string $id
     *
     *
@return bool[]
     */
    public function
delete($id)
    {
        $path = 'meetings/'.$id;
        $url = $this->retrieveZoomUrl();
        $body = [
            'headers' => $this->headers,
            'body'    => json_encode([]),
        ];

        $response =  $this->client->delete($url.$path, $body);
       
        return [
            'success' => $response->getStatusCode() === 204,
        ];
    }
}
And add the following constants to your controller.

const MEETING_TYPE_INSTANT = 1;
const MEETING_TYPE_SCHEDULE = 2;
const MEETING_TYPE_RECURRING = 3;
const MEETING_TYPE_FIXED_RECURRING_FIXED = 8;
So the final controller will look like, 


<?php

namespace
App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Models\ZoomMeeting;
use App\Traits\ZoomMeetingTrait;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class MeetingController extends AppBaseController
{
    use ZoomMeetingTrait;

    const MEETING_TYPE_INSTANT = 1;
    const MEETING_TYPE_SCHEDULE = 2;
    const MEETING_TYPE_RECURRING = 3;
    const MEETING_TYPE_FIXED_RECURRING_FIXED = 8;

    public function show($id)
    {
        $meeting = $this->get($id);

        return view('meetings.index', compact('meeting'));
    }

    public function store(Request $request)
    {
        $this->create($request->all());

        return redirect()->route('meetings.index');
    }

    public function update($meeting, Request $request)
    {
        $this->update($meeting->zoom_meeting_id, $request->all());

        return redirect()->route('meetings.index');
    }

    public function destroy(ZoomMeeting $meeting)
    {
        $this->delete($meeting->id);

        return $this->sendSuccess('Meeting deleted successfully.');
    }
}

So this is all you need to integrate zoom API, so easy 😊  Right. Enjoy the code.
