To use the Zoom integration in the SaaS version, you have two options to continue.
The OAuth method - If you continue with this method, you need to build an OAuth Application on the Zoom App Marketplace and submit it for review. Once you submit your app, Zoom will conduct a functional and security review of your app. Your app will be published to the Zoom App Marketplace on a successful review, and your Tenants can connect their Zoom accounts to the plugin. We would like to inform you that Zoom is extremely tough about its Zoom App and it is almost impossible to approve the App.
The JWT method - If you continue with this method, each Tenant needs to create their personal JWT app and connect the Zoom account via the JWT app. It is easy to implement and does not need any approval from Zoom. Here is how to connect the Zoom account via the JWT app.
