Change contant information of the API meeting

Description/Error

Hi

I’m using API services to create a meeting and I want to set the host name. According to documentation, those fields can change. However, when I set contant_name and contant_email up in the json and created the meeting, nothing happened.

When I start a meeting with the start_url, host name is de original name of the user.

I did a test through the page and it worked.

Here the json

{
“agenda”: “subject”,
“topic”: “subject”,
“settings”: {
“contact_name”: “New name”,
“contact_email”: "danieden72@gmail.com",
“host_video”: true,
“participant_video”: true,
“audio”: “voip”,
“approval_type”: “0”
}

Which Endpoint/s?
https://api.zoom.us/v2/users/{userId}/meetings

Hi @danieden72,

The Content Name and Content Email is used to display the inforamtion when a user registers for a meeting and is separate from the host name. To update the host name you would need to use the update user API[1].

Hi @Michael_Purnell

Thanks for the answer

However, emails what I received from zoom did not change the “Content Email” although they had had setting up another one.

{
“agenda”: “test 5555555”,
“topic”: “test 5555555”,
“settings”: {
“contact_name”: “New name”,
“contact_email”: "danieden72@gmail.com",
“host_video”: true,
“participant_video”: true,
“audio”: “voip”,
“approval_type”: “0”
}

Hey @danieden72,

I was able to reproduce this issue. This is a bug on our end and we will work on fixing it. JIRA ZOOM-112113

As a work around, I tried updating the meeting with the contact_name and contact_email and it worked as intended. So your flow could be create meeting > update meeting contact info.

{
	"settings": {
		"contact_name": "New name",
		"contact_email": "danieden72@gmail.com"
	}
}

Thanks,
Tommy
