Allow joining meetings only on certain accounts on MacOS

Can I ask a question related with plist configuration (macOS)? We tried to restrict students access on college issued device. So they can only join School related meeting via Zoom.

I found this one the website, To configure the Zoom macOS client to only allow joining meetings for certain accounts, with a .plist deployment, the following key would need to be added to the us.zoom.config.plist file:

account ID

Does this setting still valid? I tried other plist settings and they all works expect this one. Could you please give me some hint?

Kind regards,

Hope this helps. Thanks!
