Getting Started with SSO Follow

Overview

Single sign-on allows you to login using your company credentials. Zoom single sign-on (SSO) is based on SAML 2.0.

Zoom acts as the Service Provider (SP), and offers automatic user provisioning. You do not need to register as a user in Zoom. Once Zoom receives a SAML response from the Identity Provider (IdP), it checks if this user exists. If the user does not exist, Zoom creates a user account automatically with the received name ID. 

Zoom can also work with other Service Providers such as PingOne, OktaCentrify, ShibbolethGluu, and OneLogin. Zoom can also work with ADFS 2.0 SAML implementation.

Prerequisites 

  • Business or Education account
  • Approved Vanity URL

Instructions

Note: If you don't already have an approved vanity URL, apply for your vanity URL (such as https://yourcompany.zoom.us) on your Account Profile page. You will need to wait for this to be approved before you can configure the SSO on the Zoom side. 

First, configure your IdP to send us the following

  • Any unique identifier linked to nameID such as edupersonTargetedIDpersistentID or mail
  • (Optional) Accepted attributes such are email (urn:oid:0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.3), sn (urn:oid:2.5.4.4) and  and givenName (urn:oid:2.5.4.42).

Second, enter your SSO information at https://zoom.us/account/sso. See the attached example from your idP xml metadata. 

  • Sign-in page URL: <SingleSignOnService>
  • Sign-out page URL: <SingleLogoutService>
  • Certificate: <X509Certificate>  * Note: Remove the Begin Certificate and End Certificate"
  • Issuer: <ID of EntityDescriptor>
  • Binding: Choose http-post or http-redirect
  • Default user type: Basic or Pro

Lastly, once configured, you can get the SP metadata XML file from: https://yourcompany.zoom.us/saml/metadata/sp

Once Configured

To start, all SSO users need to access https://yourcompany.zoom.us to login using a browser, or if you login from the desktop or mobile client, you need to enter domain name of your vanity URL under SSO login.
