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 works with Okta as well as other enterprise identity management platforms such as Centrify, Microsoft Active DirectoryGluuOneLoginPingOneShibboleth, and many others. Zoom can map attributes to provision a user to different group with feature controls.

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), Zoom checks if this user exists. If the user does not exist, Zoom creates a user account automatically with the received name ID.
