Zoom cloud application

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), your users can use their Google Cloud credentials to sign in to enterprise-cloud applications.

Set up SSO via SAML for Zoom

Here's how to set up single sign-on (SSO) via SAML for the Zoom® application.

Note: Before configuring SSO you need to obtain a "Vanity URL" for your domain from Zoom. The Vanity URL matches your organization's domain name. For example, the Vanity URL for yourdomain.com would be yourdomain.zoom.us. You can apply for a Vanity URL at https://zoom.us/account. Confirm that Zoom has approved your Vanity URL before performing the SSO setup steps below.


Step 1: Set up Google as a SAML identity provider (IdP)
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Click the plus (+) icon at bottom right.
  4. Locate and click Zoom in the application list.
  5. On the Google IDP Information page:
    • Copy and save the SSO URL and Entity ID.
    • Download the Certificate.
  6. Click Next.
  7. On the Service Provider Details page, edit the ACS URL and the Entity ID, replacing {vanity-url‑subdomain} with the domain name part of your Zoom Vanity URL. For example, if your Zoom Vanity URL is yourdomain.zoom.us, replace {vanity-url-subdomain} with yourdomain.
  8. Click Finish.
Step 2: Set up Zoom as a SAML 2.0 service provider (SP)
  1. Open a new incognito browser window.
  2. Sign in to https://zoom.us with your organization's Zoom administrator account.
  3. Under My Profile at left, in the Advanced section, click Single Sign-on.
  4. Enter the following information on the SAML tab:
    • Sign-in page URL: the SSO URL copied in Step 1 above.
    • Identity provider certificate: the certificate downloaded in Step 1.
    • Service Provider (SP) Entity ID: the Vanity URL, omitting the "https://" prefix.
    • Issuer (IDP Entity ID): the Entity ID copied in Step 1 above.
  5. Click Save Changes.
Step 3: Enable the Zoom app
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Select Zoom.
  4. At the top right of the gray box, click Edit Service Compose.

  5. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  6. To turn on or off a service only for users in an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. To keep the service turned on or off even when the service is turned on or off for the parent organizational unit, click Override.
    4. If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

  7. Ensure that your Zoom user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 4: Verify that the SSO is working
  1. Close all browser windows.
  2. Open https://{yourdomain}.zoom.com and attempt to sign in. You should be automatically redirected to the Google sign in page.
  3. Enter your sign in credentials.
  4. After your sign in credentials are authenticated, you are automatically redirected back to Zoom.
