External Tools API Get request returns empty list

I am the get API to return a external tools used on my canvas. When I do a curl get request,

/api/v1/courses/3206736/external_tools" -H "Authorization: Bearer <Access Token>"

Its returns [] brackets even tho I have a few external tools on my canvas. I have access to these external tools and I have tried other ways of displaying them such as specifying the external tool id, but I get "the specified resource does not exist" message which makes no sense to me either.

If the configuration for those tools isn't defined directly in that course you also need to supply the `include_parents=true` parameter to show the ones that are available to the course.

Ok well I got some type of reply. The reason why I am doing any of this is to access my zoom schedule links. So there is a new link posted in the zoom tab for each class, but I am unsure of how to get that information. If I do this curl


I will get a url, image.png but the url when clicked says

Cannot locate launch request, please try again.

So do you have any ideas have I get the individual zoom links, or closes class zoom link?
