Ready to add video to your Zendesk tickets? Awesome! Here's how to set up the Wistia Zendesk integration:

Getting Started

  1. First things first, get yourself a free Wistia account. Or, high five yourself for having one already 👏.
  2. Go to your Wistia account settings and create an access token with all permissions. Give it a descriptive name for future reference, like "Zendesk integration token."
  3. Copy that token into the Wistia app's installation settings in Zendesk, where it will be stored securely.
  4. If you want your team to be able to upload new videos, enable the "Allow upload" option.
  5. If uploading is enabled, you'll need to pick a default project to upload videos into. Head to your Wistia account and find the project you want to use, then copy its ID (the part of the URL after /projects/) and paste it into the "Default Wistia project ID for uploads" setting.
  6. If you want to limit which projects from your Wistia account appear in the Wistia Zendesk app, fill out the optional "Projects to show" field.
  7. Click the "Install" button to finish setting up the integration.

That's it! After following those steps, you can access the Wistia app from its button in the Zendesk ticket editor toolbar:
