Connecting to Zoom

To authenticate to Zoom, you can use the OAuth standard to connect to your own data or to allow other users to connect to their data.

Using OAuth Authentication

First you will need to create an OAuth app. To do so, navigate to https://marketplace.zoom.us/develop/create and click Create under the OAuth section. Select whether or not the app will be for individual users or for the entire account, and uncheck the box to publish the app. Give the app a name and click Create. You will then be given your Client Secret and Client ID

After setting the following connection properties, you are ready to connect:

  • OAuthClientID: Set this to the OAuth Client ID that is specified in your app settings.
  • OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the OAuth Client Secret that is specified in your app settings.
  • CallbackURL: Set this to the Redirect URI you specified in your app settings.
  • InitiateOAuth: Set this to GETANDREFRESH. You can use InitiateOAuth to manage the process to obtain the OAuthAccessToken.

Example Connection String

Profile=Zoom.apip;ProfileSettings='InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH;OAuthClientId=your_client_id;OAuthClientSecret=your_client_secret;CallbackUrl=your_callback_url';
