Do you need a Pro account or above to use Web SDK in app?

I setup a JWT app in my Free developer account to test the Web SDK for a client project. I just saw this page about needing Pro account or above:

In order for my client to use the Web SDK in their app, do I need to make sure they have at least a Pro account and to setup the JWT from their Developer account?

Will this not work from the free dev account?

The app I setup shows “Intent to publish: No” does this mean this is just for testing because it’s on a Free account?

Just need to clarify so I can make sure it keeps working.


Hi @jinsley8,
Thank you for posting and using the Developer Forum. Please see the responses to your inquiries below:

To host meetings with the Web SDK, the developer must have a Pro or higher plan.

Only users in the same Zoom account will be able to use “private” / “intent to publish: no” apps.

If you want all Zoom users (in and outside of your Zoom account) to be able to connect their Zoom account to your website, you must publish your app to the App Marketplace.

Here is how to change your publication state:

Please let me know if this helps.


Is there a tutorial on creating a public App that allows all Zoom users to connect to the app?

Thanks @donte.S

If I’m setting up a Zoom app that only users within a web app can use, is this still considered private?

Hey @jinsley8 ,

Can you explain your use case here so I can make the best suggestion? :slight_smile:
