Adding a panelist to a webinar via api can silently fail

I was sending an invalid request to the add panelists endpoint, and a 201 code was being returned, but the panelist was not being added.

The request body I sent was

{
  email: 'mark.vanlandingham@discourse.org',
  name: 'Mark VanLandingham' 
}

Instead of the correct:

{
  panelists: [
    {
      email: 'mark.vanlandingham@discourse.org',
      name: 'Mark VanLandingham' 
    }
  ]
}

You may want to ensure that the API is returning the correct error code when the request is invalid. This is also confusing because the response body I was sent looked like a success as well:

{ id: correct_webinar_id, updated_at: sometime }

Another issue to look into:

I sent this to the add panelist endpoint, and once again received a 201 status code without the panelist being created.

{
  panelists: [
    {
      email: 'mark.vanlandingham@discourse.org',
      name: '' 
    }
  ]
}

Hey @markvanlan,

Thanks for sharing these bugs. We will work on fixing the error codes and responses. (ZOOM-132994)
