With Site24x7 AppLogs, you can collect and manage events from Zoom Meetings, Video Webinars, Conference Rooms, and Chats, and analyze their availability and performance. You can also save searches, create alerts, schedule reports, and view key metrics as widgets on a dashboard. Learn more about log management with Site24x7.

Zoom events are grouped into core event types as listed below, all of which can be monitored using Site24x7:

  • Meeting Events

Follow these steps specific to Zoom events:

  • For Log Type: Enter zoomevents. This will automatically populate the rest of the fields.

  • Enter the Secret Token.
  • Ensure that API Upload is enabled.
  • Copy the HTTPS endpoint URL to enter in Zoom Marketplace, when prompted.
  • Click Save.
