Iframe for the join link

We need to start zoom call from our web app and have user to stay inside our app. To perform that we were opening zoom meeting link inside iframe and it worked well until today. Now we see that ‘X-Frame-Options’ is set to ‘SAMEORIGIN’ and we can’t follow zoom invitation link inside iframe. Maybe there is some extra params we can use for that?

Hey @mark1,

Hi Tommy,

The issue appears to be back again for us.

We are using the solution suggested last time by embedding the web client into an iframe as there were some issues with the web sdk around video and audio, but it looks like Zoom has set X-frame-Options deny on the webclient when I look at the headers in the request which has broken our app.

Kind regards,

Rory

Hey @rory.street,

We are looking into this. Looks like this is only still happening with the /wc path. As an alternative you can use the /j and /s for embedding meetings in iFrames. This might require a few extra clicks for your users, but should be a workaround until we get /wc working again.

To Start Meeting:
https://zoom.us/s/meetingID

To Join Meeting
https://zoom.us/j/meetingID

Will get back to you asap once our engineers have taken a look.

Thanks,
Tommy

Thanks Tommy,

Unfortunately that work around means the user needs to have the Zoom client installed.

The way we currently had it working was that Zoom was embedded into our application so that users could see who was currently speaking and they were also able to screen share with them.

Kind regards,

Rory

Hey @rory.street,

The user can click the open in browser option to join the meeting via the Web Client and stay inside your application.

If they do not have Zoom installed:

If they have Zoom installed:

IS there any ETA in when this issue with X-Frame-Options would be resolved??

Hey @aswin.harikumar7, @rory.street and everyone,

We will have this (/wc path) fixed in a release coming this weekend.

Thanks again for your patience.

Thanks @tommy!

I can confirm embedded Zoom video, audio and screen sharing are now working inside our our meeting app.
