How do I create an app to activate the integration between Zoom and Magnet?

You can manage your event marketing, administration, and bookings or ticket sales in Magnet, and then host your online event in Zoom. Integrating your Magnet events with Zoom fully connects your events. When participants register for or buy a ticket to your published Magnet event, the system will automatically register them for the connected Zoom webinar or meeting; their booking confirmation will include their Zoom link, meeting ID and passcode to enable them to join on Zoom.

There are 3 steps to connecting your Magnet events with Zoom:

Step 1 – On Zoom’s Developer Platform, create an App.

Step 2 – On Zoom, create one or more webinars or meetings.

Step 3 – On Magnet, connect your event to the Zoom webinar or meeting.

Note—Zoom Account Types: To integrate with Zoom, you will need to sign up for a Zoom Plan. For more details, see: What Zoom plan do I need to integrate with Magnet?

These instructions address Step 1: On Zoom’s Developer Platform, create an App:

1. On the Zoom websiteSign In to your Zoom account.
2. After you have signed in, go to:   
Alternatively, you may navigate from the Zoom homepage
a) From the top menu, click on Solutions > Developer Platform.
b) In the top-right corner, click on the Build App button
c) Zoom’s API License and Terms of Use window will appear; click on the Agree button.


Under Choose your app type, find JWT and click on the Create button. The Create a JWT app window will appear.


4. In the App Name field, type a name for your app (for instance, ‘MagnetApp’). Then, click the Create button.
5. On the app Information tab, fill in the required Basic Information and Developer Contact Information. Then, click the Continue button.


6. On the App Credentials tab, next to API Secret and IM Chat History Token, click the Regenerate button.


7. From the left-hand menu, click on the Activation tab.
8. To activate a REST API, click the Activate your app button.
9. When you are ready to complete Step 3, you will need to return to this area to copy the App Credentials—specifically, the JWT Token string—and then paste it into Magnet. So, you may choose to leave this Zoom browser tab open for future reference.

Nicely done—you’ve completed Step 1! Now, you’re ready to complete Step 2, to create a webinar or meeting in Zoom.
