Change Publication State

Under the current Marketplace policy, private apps cannot be published to the Zoom App Marketplace. This distinction exists to allow for control over the sharing of apps outside of a developer account, thereby closing a potential security attack vector. To support developers who wish to publish their private app, the Zoom App Marketplace now provides a process to change the state of the app to submit to the publishing process.

Publishing Private Apps

To change the state of a private app to be published, sign in to your developer account and navigate to the App Dashboard by clicking “Manage”.

On this page, click on “Install” on the left side navigation. At the bottom of this section, the state of your app may be changed under “Share your app with others”.

To make this change, click “Change Now” and confirm the change. The private app will now be allowed to be submitted for publishing publicly on the Zoom App Marketplace.

Change Effects

After the change is confirmed, the Zoom App Marketplace will change the state of the app within its platform across all Users. Any current Users of the app will not have their current installations affected, and app credentials will not change. There will now, however, be two sets of credentials listed under App Credentials: a Development and a Production set. Previous credentials will now be Production credentials. Development credentials are a newly created set.

The only other changes to the app are cosmetic changes including a new left-hand navigation menu and additional meta-data entries. More information on this change can be found in our Submitting an App guide.
