Depending on your web conferencing service and setup, you may need to configure your web conferencing information in the MEETS Admin Panel.


For Cisco Webex:

Aside for the above, please see Important notes when setting up Cisco Webex with MEETS, for setting up whitelisting and allowing attendees to join before host.

For Zoom: Please follow the steps below. 


To enable MEETS to work with your Zoom accounts,  configure your Zoom information in the MEETS Admin Panel.


  1. First, access your Zoom site and get your API key and secret as shown below. 

Go to your Zoom admin account. Click on App Marketplace.

 Alternatively, go directly to https://marketplace.zoom.us/  and log in to Zoom with your admin account.

Sign in


Click on Develop>Build App




Choose JWT and click "Create"


Create the app. 

Give the app the name of your choice, and click "Create"

If you are asked if you want to publish the app, choose to not publish the app. 


Enter the description, company name, your name and email and click "continue"


You will now get your JWT key and secret.


 

Click on "Continue" which will give you the option for more features. You need to apply for that. Click once again "Continue"  to activate your app.


Once your app has been created, you can get the API credentials again, by going to marketplace.zoom.us  and clicking on "manage"




  1. Now we go back to the MEETS admin panel. Select the Conferencing Accounts tab, and “Sitewide Settings” on the left hand panel (see screen capture below).

  1. Enter the Zoom API key and Secret in the MEETS API Credentials section. (Note: not the MEETS key and secret - rather the Zoom API key and secret as shown in above in Step 1)
  2. Account Provisioning Settings: If you choose to turn on automatic account creation (see Step 5 below), you can choose the method for automatically creating accounts in these settings. 

Zoom offers the following Account Provisioning methods:

  1. Regular creation (create): Users will receive a confirmation email from Zoom asking them to verify their newly created Zoom account. Using the verification link in the email, users will be able to login to their Zoom account and change their password and other profile settings. In most cases, this is the recommended Account Provisioning method, as it will enable your users to access their Zoom account outside the LMS as well, without requiring assistance from a Zoom administrator.
  2. Auto creation (autocreate): Users will not receive a confirmation email from Zoom, and will not need to verify their newly created Zoom account. However, without the Zoom confirmation email, users will require assistance from your institution's Zoom administrator in order to access their Zoom account from outside the LMS.
  3. Creation for integrated use only (custcreate): Users created in this way have no password and will not able to log into the Zoom web site or client. If you would like to use this option, you will need to request Zoom to recognize your account as an "API partner".
  4. Creation for integration with SSO sign in ability (ssocreate): This option is similar to custcreate, but the user will also be able to access the Zoom website via your institution's Identity Provider. If you would like to use this option, you will need to request Zoom to recognize your account as an "API partner" and request to have the "pre-provisioning SSO User" option enabled.
  5. After completing the above steps for configuring the Sitewide Settings, you can choose to configure “Per Connection Settings” for each instance for which you wish to setup automatic account creation.
