Auto-provisioning allows the management of users within Zoom from Azure utilizing SCIM. SCIM is a subset of the Zoom APIs specific to user management.

If a user is added to Azure and/or assigned the Zoom app, they will be provisioned in Zoom automatically. If the user is unassigned or deactivated in Azure, they will be deactivated in Zoom as well.
