This article provides admins with instructions to create and configure conferencing passports that provide conferencing functionality for Space Reservations.


  • Account Owner permissions that have been assigned Platform User licenses.
  • Space Reservations has been configured with Conferencing Integration enabled.
    • If Space Reservations is configured with a calendar provider that includes conferencing features (eg. Google Calendar with Google Meets), a separate conferencing passport that is native to the calendar provider does not need to be created.
      Nevertheless, if conferencing features are required from a provider other than the native one, then a conferencing passport specific to that provider must be created.
    • Example: If Space Reservations is configured with Google Calendar, Google Meet conferencing features can be selected during reservations. However, if other conferencing options are required, the passport for the specific conferencing provider needs to be created. 
  • Ensure the service account has been configured as per the conferencing provider prerequisites below.
