Integrate with Zoom

Use JumpCloud SAML Single Sign On (SSO) to give your users convenient but secure access to all their web applications with a single set of credentials. Provision, update, and deprovision users in Zoom in real-time from JumpCloud using the Identity Management (SCIM) integration.

Read this article to learn how to setup the Zoom integration.


  • A Zoom account with owner or admin role privileges.
  • Your Zoom domain and company names.
  • A Business, Enterprise or Educator account with an approved Vanity URL.
  • A verified associated domain in Zoom.
  • A JumpCloud administrator account.
  • SSO must be enabled before you can configure SCIM.

Important Considerations

  • You will need to create two application integrations, ZoomJWT for SSO and ZoomOAuth for Identity Managment.
  • Don’t add a user group to multiple instances of a SCIM connector for the same application (i.e., multiple Slack SCIM connectors). If you do, users who are members of that user group will be deactivated in the application if one of the instances is unbound from the user group.
  • If you delete an integrated Zoom application from your Applications list, the application is removed from JumpCloud, but any previously bound users remain active in Zoom. These users will be able log in to Zoom with the password they used prior to enablement of SSO to the Zoom application from your JumpCloud account.
  • When you deactivate Identity Management on your Zoom application, previously bound users remain active in Zoom and able to authenticate using SSO. No further updates will be made to user accounts via the Identity Management integration.
  • Newly provisioned users will receive an email about being provisioned with Zoom after attempting to log in to the connector for the first time.
  • When you deprovision users, they’re removed from the Zoom user group, but their user account remains.
  • If you remove a user from the JumpCloud user group(s) that are bound to Zoom, the user is deactivated in Zoom, but the account still exists in Zoom.
    • If you add the user back to the JumpCloud user group(s) bound to Zoom, the user is reactivated.
    • If you delete a user who is still associated to Zoom, then the user is deleted from Zoom. 
  • The expiration date for the access token generated during JWT App creation in Zoom determines the length of the connection between Zoom and JumpCloud; an expired token will break the connection, and you will need to reconfigure the connector.
  • The refresh token is active for a 90 days.


Zoom doesn't provide alerts when a token is about to expire. The default expiration is 90 days so you should set a reminder to know when a token expires.

  • If you need to regenerate your token, you must deactivate the Identity Management integration, regenerate your token and then reactivate the integration.
  • You cannot share Client IDs and Secrets between connectors. Each connector must have it’s own pair.

Attribute Considerations

  • A default set of attributes are managed for users. See the Attribute Mappings section for more details.
  • Zoom doesn’t support password synchronization.
  • Role is always set to Member.
  • Even though multiple phone numbers are accepted, only the first one passed is displayed in the Zoom UI. For example, if a user has a work phone and a work cell configured in JumpCloud, only the work phone is shown in the Zoom phone field.

Creating a new JumpCloud Application Integration

  1. Log in to the JumpCloud Admin Portal.
  2. Go to USER AUTHENTICATION SSO Applications.
  3. Click + Add New Application.
  4. Type the name of the application in the Search field and select it.
  5. Click Next.
  6. In the Display Label, type your name for the application. Optionally, you can enter a Description, adjust the User Portal Image and choose to hide or Show in User Portal.
  7. If this is a Bookmark application, enter its URL in the Bookmark URL field.
  8. Click Save Application.
  9. If successful, click:
    • Configure Application and go to the next section.
    • Close to configure your new connector at a later time.

Configuring the SSO Integration

To configure JumpCloud

  1. Create a new application or select it from the Configured Applications list.
  2. Select the SSO tab.
  3. Replace any instances of YOURDOMAIN or YOURCOMPANY with your Zoom values.
  4. Add or change any additional attributes.
  5. Click save.

To download the certificate

  1. Find your application in the Configured Applications list and click anywhere in the row to reopen its configuration window.
  2. Select the SSO tab and click IDP Certificate Valid > Download certificate.


The certificate.pem will download to your local Downloads folder.

To configure Zoom

  1. In Zoom, navigate to Advanced > Single Sign-On, then click Enable Single Sign-On.
  2. Enter the following:
    • Sign-in Page URL – copy and paste the JumpCloud IDP URL.
    • Sign-out Page URL – enter
    • Identity provider certificate – Copy the portion between —–BEGIN CERTIFICATE—– and —–END CERTIFICATE—–  of the certificate downloaded in the previous section.
    • Service Provider (SP) Entity ID – copy and paste the JumpCloud SP Entity ID.
    • Issuer (IDP Entity ID) – copy and paste the JumpCloud IdP Entity ID.
    • Binding – select HTTP-Redirect.
    • Signature Hash Algorithm – select SHA-256.
  3. Click Save Changes
  4. Select the SAML Response Mapping tab.
  5. Click the Edit link and then Map to SAML Attribute for the following options:
    • Email address – enter Email 
    • Last name – enter LastName 
    • First name – enter FirstName 
  6. Select Save Changes.

Using JIT Provisioning

Additional attributes are required to use JIT provisioning. JIT required attributes are pre populated and are on by default to enable JIT provisioning. You can’t edit the JIT required service provider attributes. You can customize the JumpCloud attribute name and the constant value for JIT required attributes. Toggle off the attributes to opt out of sending the attributes in the SAML assertion

To complete the provisioning process

  1. Authorize a user’s access to the application in JumpCloud.  
  2. Have the user log in to the application using SSO. The SAML assertion passes from JumpCloud to the service provider, and gives the service provider the information it needs to create the user account.

Authorizing User SSO Access

Users are implicitly denied access to applications. After you connect an application to JumpCloud, you need to authorize user access to that application. You can authorize user access from the Application Configuration panel or from the Groups Configuration panel. 

To authorize user access from the Application Configuration panel

  1. Log in to the JumpCloud Admin Portal.
  2. Go to USER AUTHENTICATION > SSO Applications, then select the application to which you want to authorize user access.
  3. Select the User Groups tab. If you need to create a new group of users, see Get Started: Groups.
  4. Select the check box next to the group of users you want to give access.
  5. Click save

To learn how to authorize user access from the Groups Configuration panel, see Authorize Users to an SSO Application.

Validating SSO authentication workflow(s)

IdP Initiated

  • Access the JumpCloud User Console.
  • Select the Service Provider icon.
  • This should automatically launch and login to the application.

SP Initiated

  • Navigate to your Service Provider application URL.
  • You will be redirected to log in to the JumpCloud User Portal.
  • The browser will be redirected back to the application and be automatically logged in.

Configuring the Identity Management Integration


Zoom is deprecating the JWT app type. If you currently have Identity Management enabled with Zoom, you must deactivate only the Identity Management and recreate it with the ZoomOAuth app. We are planning to reinstate IdM on the existing Zoom application connector at a later date. You will have two Zoom apps, Zoom JWT for SSO and ZoomOAuth for Identity Management.

Do not delete the ZoomJWT application or deactivate SSO.


Before starting, ensure:

  1. The JWT SSO connector is configured and enabled.
  2. The JWT IdM connector has been deactivated.
  3. You have an existing verified associated domain.
  4. You will not share Client IDs and Secrets between new and existing connectors.

To configure Zoom

  1. Sign in to Zoom.
  2. Click Develop in the top right corner of the page.
  3. Select Build App and then click Create in the OAuth tile.

    • Choose app type – select Account-level app.
    • Toggle off publishing the app on the Zoom App Marketplace.
  2. Click Create.
  3. Under App Credentials, copy both the Client ID and Client Secret to Notepad.
  4. In Redirect URL for OAuth, enter
  5. In Add Allow List, enter
  6. Click Continue.
  7. On the Information page, verify the App name and enter the following required information:
    • Short Description
    • Long Description
    • Company Name
    • Name
