Using Zoom Connector

Talkdesk Zoom Connector streamlines communication between your agents and subject-matter experts across your organization, in order to provide the best customer experience and break down communication silos. It is available for the US and Europe regions. 

This product requires additional licensing. Initial enablement and setup are conducted by Talkdesk. We will provide you with a Keybase User ID, which you will need to securely share your JWT App credentials. 


  • If your Zoom organization account already uses the JWT App, you can skip to Configuring Event Subscriptions.
  • Talkdesk Zoom Connector is not compatible with Talkdesk Phone or Talkdesk Microsoft Teams Connector.
  •  Talkdesk Zoom Connector only supports E.164 numbers. Extensions, blind transfers, and outbound SIP calls are not supported.
  • Contacts' presence updates happen in real-time, but only refresh when clicking the user's name.
