In this blog we are going to walk through the process of integrating Zoom with Workspace ONE Access.  There are two very important prerequisites before you can setup the SAML integration with zoom:

  1. You need an approved Vanity URL.
  2. Users need to be created with an SSO Profile (unless you are using JIT)


Zoom Vanity URL

In your Zoom administration console, under Admin -> Account Management -> Account Profile. You can apply for the Vanity URL at the bottom of this screen. Note: It might take some time to get this approved by Zoom.

Zoom Users

When you create users in Zoom, they need to be created with the “SSO User” feature. Users can be created via CSV or through their API. If you are using the API to create users, you will need to include the “SSOCreate” action:



  "action": "ssoCreate",
  "user_info": {
    "email": "",
    "type": 1,
    "first_name": "Steve",
    "last_name": "Test"


When users are created, you will see the SSO Icon:

Zoom Single Sign-On Setup


In order to configure Zoom for Single Sign-On, you will need to your IDP Metadata from Workspace ONE Access.

  1. Log into the Workspace ONE Administration Console
  2. Go to Catalog -> Web Applications and Click the Settings Button
  3. Click on SAML Metadata ->Identity Provider (IdP) Metadata


In your Zoom Administration Console:

  1. Go to Admin -> Advanced -> Single Sign-On
  2. Enter your Sign-in page URL. This can be found in the “md:SingleSignOnService Binding=”urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-POST”” tag. This URL will end in /SAAS/auth/federation/sso

  3. Paste your Identity Provider Certificate (Signing). Note: Proper certificate formatting is not required.
  4. Leave the default SP Provider (SP) Entity ID
  5. In the “Issuer (IDP Entity ID)” enter the value from the WS1 Metadata. This can be found entityID field which is on the first line of the metadata. This URL will end in idp.xml.
  6. Select HTTP-POST for the binding.
  7. Select “SHA-256” for the Signature Hash Algorithm.
