How to Configure Zoom with Azure

Zoom has a single sign-on (SSO) integration with Azure that allows you to login to your Zoom account using the credentials that are associated with your Company’s Azure account. A Zoom license can be assigned to a user in Azure based on the group they belong to.

The following topics are covered in this article:

  • How to add Zoom from the Azure Gallery
  • How to configure Single Sign-On with Azure
  • How to assign Azure Users and Groups to Zoom
  • How to set up Group Mapping (Optional)
  • Mapping Basic Information
  • How to set up Auto Provisioning in Azure AD

Prerequisites for configuring Zoom with Azure

  • An owner or administrator of Zoom must have the following privileges:
  • An approved vanity URL for a business or education account
  • Subscription to Azure Active Directory
  • The ability to create a JSON Web Token (JWT) from a JSON document

Note: If the Associated Domain is not approved, the user will be contacted automatically via email to confirm that they want to be provisioned onto their account, due to the lack of an approved Associated Domain. For any users that fall under an approved domain, provisioning will take place without an email confirmation being sent to the user.
