Configuring User IDs for individual users

Kaltura User IDs can be added in Zoom so recordings can be associated with the correct user in Kaltura so that the recordings are always associated with the correct individual. By default, all recordings will be associated with the Kaltura account of the administrator when no user IDs are added to Zoom.

Users can create a user ID on their profile page, accounts can be created by the admin by accessing the account’s management page and configuring the user ID there, or it can be configured by using the Update a User REST API call.

Viewing Recordings in Kaltura

  1. Choose the Content > Bulk Upload Log menu option to view the status of a recording. There is a section here to show you who uploaded it, when it was uploaded, and its current status. It is important to note that the progress of your recording will depend on how large it is.
  2. In Kaltura, you can view Zoom Recordings by selecting the Content > Entries option, and then ticking the box labelled Zoom Recordings.
