After temporarily disabling the guest mode feature for our App, we encountered an issue while testing app installation by unauthenticated users. Upon installation, the message “This app has been disabled” was displayed. To reproduce the issue, kindly follow the steps outlined below:
How To Reproduce
Join a meeting with two user account - one authenticated, one unauthenticated
Get a guest mode enabled app
Install the app on the authenticated account
Disable guest mode in marketplace
Regenerate publishable url or not.
Share the app to the unauthenticated user.
Open shared app from unauthenticated user’s client.
Expected: User should see a Zoom screen with button “Sign In to Add”
Output: User will see a screen with This app is disabled message
This doesn’t happen when Guest Mode is enabled back
The “This app is disabled” screen only shows up when the user trying to install the app is not signed into their zoom client(unathenticated)
Tested with two separate Apps
Regenerated publishable URL
Uninstalled and re-installed the app on the authenticated user account
As you noted in the screenshot I shared, the current screen is displayed to an unauthenticated user when they open the app with guest mode disabled.
I just wanted to clarify whether there has been any recent change in the app’s behavior when an unauthenticated user tries to access a guest-mode-disabled app in a meeting. Previously, such users were presented with a page displaying a “Sign In to Add” button. I would like to confirm if this behavior has been modified to the current approach where the “This app has been disabled” message screen is displayed.
In most cases, a user should still see the option to sign in to add an app. What version of the Zoom Client are you using when you see this? Likewise, does this only happen if you disable guest mode while the meeting is ongoing? In other words, can you start a new meeting to see the prompt to sign in to install?
I have conducted tests on Zoom Client versions 5.12.9 and 5.13.10. Disabling guest mode during an ongoing meeting does not appear to be the cause of the “This app has been disabled” message. I have attempted to start a new meeting, but the same issue occurred.
Do you happen to know the scenarios or conditions that trigger this message to appear? I’m curious if it’s documented anywhere. Thank you.
Maybe this will be any help, I checked the console when the message “This app has been disabled” is displayed, here’s a screenshot of the error printed there.
"error": "Not Found",
"message": "The application detail is not found",
Yes, I am currently testing with an app that has not yet been published. I will await your findings on whether this issue is specific to unpublished apps or if it occurs with published apps as well. Thank you.
