Joining Authenticated Meetings

When using the Web SDK, meeting hosts can require their participants to authenticate either through Single-Sign On (SSO) or from specific domains. Follow this guide to enable authentication on an account and join an authenticated user through the Web SDK.

Configure Account Authentication Settings

Within Account Settings, first enable the setting Only authenticated users can join meetings. Next you’ll need to configure whether the meeting requires Single-Sign On or specific domains to authenticate.

Require Single-Sign On (link)

Click Add Configuration. In the Authentication Configuration, select Sign in to external Single Sign-On (SSO) as the authentication method.

Require Specific Domains

Click Add Configuration. In the Authentication Configuration, select Sign in to Zoom with specified domains as the authentication method. Enter your domain, and click Save.

Enable User-level Default Settings

Within a user’s Profile Settings, enable the setting Only authenticated users can join meetings. This can be set as the default for the user’s hosted meetings.

Scheduling Meetings with Authentication Profiles

When creating a scheduled meeting, ensure authentication is required in Meeting Options. When scheduling, choose Only authenticated users can join and choose an authentication option.

Join Authenticated Meetings

A Zoom Web SDK Helper application will pop up requesting authorization through OAuth. If authorized, a user will then sign in using their Zoom account through email, Google/Facebook, or SSO.

After authorizing, the user will be able to join the meeting.

Users who see an error message “You cannot authorize the app” will need to install the Web SDK Helper app.
