Auto-login for Office 365 add-in Follow

Overview

For greater ease of use and quicker login, the Outlook add-in can use the SSO credentials Office 365 used to sign in to Outlook for signing in to the user's Zoom account, thus making the sign-in process automatic. 

Notes:

  • If you have preconfigured the SSO URL for the Outlook add-in, this feature will not work. You will need to deploy the add-in without a preconfigured SSO URL to allow users to automatically sign-in. 
  • This feature does not currently support use with Microsoft Intune. 

Prerequisites

  • SSO configured for your Zoom account
  • Admin access to Microsoft Azure account
  • Office 365 subscription
  • Supported Outlook versions 
    • Outlook 2019: build version 13901.20400 or higher
    • Outlook 2016: build version 13901.20336 or higher
    • Outlook Web Access (OWA) 
  • Office Identity API 1.3 or higher 

Enabling auto-login with SSO credentials 

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal as an account owner or admin.
  2. Click Advanced and then click Security.
  3. In the Sign-in Methods section, enable the Automatically sign in to Outlook add-in with Single Sign-On (SSO) credentials option. 

Once the Zoom add-in for Outlook is deployed, users should automatically be signed in to their Zoom account using the existing SSO credentials.
