Create a Zoom App

These steps will go over creating a Zoom application.

There are two types of applications you can create. You'll be able to see the steps for each.

  • Account-level app - The application is installed by the company administrator for all users.
  • User-managed app - The application is installed individually by users.

If you prefer, you can watch the video on set up or continue below for a walk through. Make sure to change your scopes based on your app type.

Step 1: Create Zoom OAuth App

  1. Go to
  2. Click Develop, then App Types.
  3. On the next screen, click create OAuth.
  4. Select either User-managed or Account-level.
  5. Uncheck Would you like to publish this App on Zoom Marketplace?
  6. Click Create.

Step 2: App Credentials

  1. Keep the Client ID and Secret somewhere secure. You’ll need them when Creating a Zoom Integration.
  2. Add a Redirect URL for OAuth. The URL should be where users are taken after they authenticate against your application. You’ll use it again while Creating a Zoom Integration with Nylas.
  3. Add the redirect URL to the OAuth allow list
  4. Allow list the URL based on your location:

Allow list your redirect URL

If you don’t allow list your redirect URL, authentication will fail.

Step 3: Information

  1. Fill out the following information:
    1. App Name
    2. Short Description
    3. Long Description
    4. Company Name
    5. Developer Contact Information

Step 4: Feature

Adding Event subscriptions is optional. Nylas will also send Event webhooks.

Step 5: Scopes

Add the following scopes depending on if you are creating a User-level app or a Account-level app.

- meeting:read
- meeting:write
- user:read
- user:write
- user_info:read
- meeting:master
- meeting:read:admin
- meeting:write:admin

Step 6: Activation

Your test application is ready to go. There is nothing you need to complete on this screen.
