Advanced SAML Mapping Follow


Advanced SAML mapping allows you to designate a Zoom license, add-ons, user roles, user groups, or IM groups based on a value being passed via SAML upon login. This can allow you to have certain users, for example university faculty, to receive a license upon login, while other users, for example university students, will be Basic (non-licensed) users upon login. You can also deny users access to your Zoom account using Advanced SAML mapping.

Advanced SAML mapping affects new users and also existing users with member or admin permissions upon their next login via SSO. Advanced SAML mapping does not apply to the Zoom account owner.

  • SSO Configured
