SSO with Active Directory in Zoom App

This post was most recently updated on July 23rd, 2022

A single sign-on feature powered by Zoom leverages SAML 2.0, which allows companies to use their Active Directory, such as Microsoft, as a single sign-on system.

SSO can be used with Active Directory in two different ways:

  • Option 1:
  • Using AD FS 2.0, enable SAML on AD. Please see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd727958(WS.10).aspx
  • Option 2:
  • This comprehensive list of enterprise identity management platforms that Zoom works with includes OKTA and many others such as Centrify, Microsoft Active Directory, Gluu, OKTA, OneLogin, PingOne, Shibboleth in addition to a multitude of others. With Zoom, a user can be provisioned to a different group based on attributes and controls.

Please see the following configurations and sample configurations for SAML and ADFS:
