JWT Authentication not recommended for 3rd Party Applications

Using this template helps us debug your issues more effectively :slight_smile:

As per the documentation available at https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/guides/auth/jwt there is a note stating that " All apps created for third-party usage must use our OAuth app type.".
What are the reasons for not using the JWT authentication mechanism for the 3rd party integration?
Also I did find documentation available for Azure and PingFederate integrations with zoom which use the JWT Authentication mechanism.

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

Which Endpoint/s?
User APIs

Hi @simrankaurbal.khokk,

JWT authentication is intended for server-to-server integrations, as JWT apps are account-wide and can’t be accessed outside of the account they’re created under.

We require OAuth for integrations where you’ll need to access/manage external Zoom accounts—these apps must follow our submission process and be published publicly on our Marketplace so that users can understand what app and permissions they’re authorizing when leveraging your integration.

Let me know if this helps to clarify,
