Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing software that allows organizations to hold virtual meetings and work together in real-time using integrated communication tools. For large organizations, Zoom provides MSI installers for mass deployments. Prior to this, administrators had to deploy Zoom as a Win32 App with Intune. However, with Zoom MSI installers, users can create a Windows line-of-business app and upload the Zoom MSI installer in Intune admin center to deploy the app to endpoints. The article from Prajwal Desai provides a detailed guide on how to deploy Zoom with Intune.

The first step is to add the Zoom desktop client as a Windows line-of-business app to Microsoft Intune. The user is instructed to sign in to the Intune Portal, select Apps > All Apps > Windows Apps, and then click on the +Add button. The article explains that for Windows, the line-of-business apps supported by Intune include .msi, .appx, .appxbundle, .msix, and .msixbundle. The user is then directed to the App information tab where they can upload the ZoomInstallerFull.msi file and configure other details, including the application name, description, and publisher.

The second step is to configure the Zoom client application deployment. The article explains how to specify the application details for the Zoom application in Intune app information page, including the app install context, command-line arguments, and logo. The article also provides instructions on how to configure the Zoom application deployment, including how to assign the application to devices.

The third step is to deploy or assign the Zoom application to users/devices. The article explains how to assign the Zoom deployment to devices on the Assignments tab and how to view the Review and Create tab.

The final step is to monitor and validate the Zoom deployment using Intune. The article explains that after deploying Zoom using Intune, the user must wait for the deployment to apply to the targeted groups, and once the devices check in with the Intune service, they will receive the application. The article provides instructions on how to monitor the Zoom deployment using Intune, including how to check if the Zoom client application is installed on the computer by looking at the icon shortcut on the desktop, and how to check the Event Viewer logs to see if the Zoom application was installed correctly.

The article also includes additional information for organizations using Configuration Manager for application deployments, explaining that Zoom can be deployed using SCCM with MSI installers. The article explains how ConfigMgr can populate install and uninstall commands, as well as the method for detecting the Zoom client.

Overall, the article provides a detailed tutorial on how to deploy Zoom with Intune for large organizations, with screenshots and step-by-step instructions to guide users through the deployment process. The article is a helpful resource for IT administrators looking to deploy Zoom with Intune or SCCM.
