Recordings...easy way to download and purge


Has anyone figured out an easy way to download then purge recordings?

I am an admin and can see all the recordings Admin/Account Management/Recording Management.


I have used advanced search to select either a topic or date range to find the recordings I am interested in saving.

My goal is to download those recordings then delete them from the Recording Management area, which will free up the amount of space used for recordings.


Thanks in advance



Hi, I hope you have found your solutions by now. If yes, can you share it here cos I believe this can help many people? 


I have been trying very hard to do so for a long time, but there is no option of selecting more than one recording at a time. It is so time-consuming to download one recording at a time. 


It would be helpful if zoom could develop a solution to help the admins do this more straightforwardly, even if there is a fee involved. 


If any experts know-how, I would be grateful to hear from you.

Hey @EricFX @HEHE8 we do not currently have this feature, but if you would like, could you please submit a feedback request at and select “Suggest an idea/improvement”? This way, we can review it for potential future releases!


As a workaround, you can leverage these GitHub projects that can do this, but it requires python installed, setting up a JWT in zoom marketplace, and a developer account with I assume a Zoom Pro license.


Or, you can use the Recording Completed webhook to download recordings in near real-time. Let me know if this helps!
