Zoom Logs

Panther supports pulling logs directly from Zoom


Panther can fetch Zoom operational and activity logs by querying various Zoom API endpoints. Panther can specifically monitor the following Zoom events:

  • Changes to Account and Group settings

  • Changes in role and license assignments for users

  • Changes to subscriptions under Billing

  • Changes made to SSO configuration, including changes made by your SSO and SAML mapping configuration

How to onboard Zoom logs to Panther

To set up this integration, you will create an OAuth2 app in your Zoom account and configure Zoom as a log source in your Panther Console.


While logged in to Zoom as a user with the Admin role, go to the Zoom roles page and verify that your Zoom user account (to be used later, in Step 2) has the following required permissions:

  • The Usage reports view permission.

  • The Sign In/Sign Out view permission.

  • The Admin Activity Logs view permission.

Step 1: Create a new Zoom log source in Panther

  1. In the left-hand navigation bar of your Panther Console, click Configure > Log Sources.

  2. Click Create New.

  3. Select Zoom from the list of available log sources. Click Start Setup.

  4. On the next screen, enter a descriptive name for the source e.g. My Zoom logs.

  5. Click Setup.

  6. Copy the Redirect URL from Panther and save it in a secure location. You will need this in the next steps when you create an OAuth app in Zoom.

    • Keep this browser window open, as you will need to complete additional configuration in the next steps.

Step 2: Create a new OAuth app in Zoom

For additional reference, see the Zoom documentation on how to create an OAuth app.

  1. Navigate to the Zoom App Marketplace.

  2. In the top-right corner of the page, click the Develop dropdown, then select Build App.

  3. On the Basic Information page:

    1. Scroll to the OAuth Information section. In the OAuth redirect URL field, paste the Redirect URL you copied from the Panther Console in Step 1.

      • In the OAuth allow lists field, verify the Redirect URL is included. If it isn't, add it to the list.

    2. Copy the Client ID and Client Secret for your app and store them in a secure location. You will need these in the next steps to finish your setup in the Panther Console.

  4. Navigate to the Scopes page.

    1. Click Add Scopes.

    2. Select Report > View Report Data.

    3. Add the following scopes, depending on the logs you plan to ingest:

      These are granular scopes. If you created your Zoom app before March 21, 2024, you likely used classic scopes. Panther supports Zoom apps created using either granular or classic scopes.

      • report:read:operation_logs:admin

        • This is required if you are fetching Zoom operation logs.

      • report:read:user_activities:admin

        • This is required if you are fetching Zoom activity logs.

  5. Navigate to the Local Test page.

    1. Click Preview Your App Listing Page.

    2. Click the Approve app toggle ON.

    3. Click the pencil icon to designate the users who will be granted access to this application.

  6. Navigate back to the Panther Console to complete the final setup.

Step 3: Finish setup in Panther

  1. In the Panther Console, on the Credentials page, enter the Client ID and the Client Secret that you obtained from Zoom.

  2. Under Select the type of scopes to use, choose Use granular scopes.

  3. Click Setup.

  4. Click Grant Access to grant Panther access to your Zoom logs.

  5. You will be directed to a success screen:

    • You can optionally enable one or more Detection Packs.

    • The Trigger an alert when no events are processed setting defaults to YES. We recommend leaving this enabled, as you will be alerted if data stops flowing from the log source after a certain period of time. The timeframe is configurable, with a default of 24 hours.
