Associate a Zoom meeting with an issue

Introduced in GitLab 12.4.

In order to communicate synchronously for incidents management, GitLab allows to associate a Zoom meeting with an issue. Once you start a Zoom call for a fire-fight, you need a way to associate the conference call with an issue, so that your team members can join swiftly without requesting a link.

Adding a zoom meeting to an issue

To associate a zoom meeting with an issue, you can use GitLab’s quick actions.

In an issue, leave a comment using the /zoom quick action followed by a valid Zoom link:

/zoom https://zoom.us/j/123456789

If the Zoom meeting URL is valid and you have at least Reporter permissions, a system alert will notify you that the addition of the meeting URL was successful. The issue’s description will be automatically edited to include the Zoom link, and a button will appear right under the issue’s title.

Link Zoom Call in Issue

You are only allowed to attach a single Zoom meeting to an issue. If you attempt to add a second Zoom meeting using the /zoom quick action, it won’t work, you need to remove it first.

Removing an existing Zoom meeting from an issue

Similarly to adding a zoom meeting, you can remove it with a quick action:

/remove_zoom

If you have at least Reporter permissions, a system alert will notify you that the meeting URL was successfully removed.
