Wondering how to get Zoom API keys or unable to see meeting host?

I have received some queries from WordPress Zoom addon users who were not able to generate their API keys properly or they can’t select a “meeting host” when creating a meeting after they enter their keys on the plugin settings page. Both of these issues are because of entering wrong API keys on the settings page.
