changeName function does not work

Description
We recently update to the latest Zoom SDK (v5.5.12509.0401) and now users are unable to change their own names. Only host/co-host can change names, but a user is unable to change their own name.

Which iOS Client SDK version?
v5.5.12509.0401

To Reproduce(If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Call MobileRTCMeetingService.changeName("New Name", myselfUserID)
  2. Call fails if user is not the host or a co-host

Smartphone (please complete the following information):

  • Device: iPhone/iPad
  • OS: iOS 14.x

Additional context
This previously worked fine.

Hey @jeremy.provost,

Thanks for using the dev forum! It is nice to see you again :slight_smile:

I ran a test and saw similar behavior. Spoke with the team and this does look to be a bug. Will file a bug report for this.

Thanks!

OK thanks. While they are looking at it there is something else related that I would like to mention. It isn’t exactly a bug, because it’s working as documented. isParticipantsRenameAllowed only works for host or cohost. It would be great if this worked for any user so that you knew if changeName would work ahead of time. Thanks again.

I agree, that makes sense. Will add to the report.

Works great. Thanks! I see they enabled any participant to query isParticipantsRenameAllowed so that’s awesome (although the documentation still says it’s for host/co-host only.
