Expose Employee Unique ID in Zoom API

Is there a roadmap to expose Employee Unique ID in the Zoom API?

We have 30k+ users and need to sync AD with Zoom user managament.

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Which Endpoint/s?

Additional context
We’re doing SAML mapping to employee unique ID in Zoom. Works great when a user changes e-mail address. We also want to be able to unlink accounts when a user leaves our organization. We’re a large university and need to automate this. Exposing employee unique ID in the Zoom API would help us.


Hey @pnts-se

Thanks for posting on the Zoom Devforum! I am still learning, but I will try my best to help answer your question. :slightly_smiling_face:

This would be extremely helpful to our University as well.
Removing users is somewhat of a hassle since we don’t store mail addresses after we close the account for obvious reasons and the value we put into “Employee Unique ID” is the only unique and fully persistant info we send to Zoom.

Hi @pnts-se @klas.mattsson,

While you’re correct in that the Employee Unique ID as it’s mapped here is not currently available via API, this is a great suggestion.

I’ll be happy to share this feedback with our team, though I also encourage you to submit this as a feature request here: #feature-requests


I am also in a great need for this. I need to delete individual accounts when someone leaves the company. Once their AD account is deleted we no longer have the username to match against our worker database to check the termination date. I’ve set the SAML mapping to populate the Unique ID but can find no way of actually using that value once it’s set.

Hi @jferguson,

Thanks for sharing this experience—this is valuable feedback, and I’ll be sure to share this with our team.
