Changing webinar host using the API

Can I somehow change the host of a webinar using the API, after it’s created? From what I see I can do that using the “scheduled for” option on the web interface. I wasn’t able to do that using the user_email field which is used upon creation.

Which Endpoint/s?
PATCH /webinars/{webinarId}

Hey @pferreir

No, none of those threads answer my question.

Hey @pferreir,

It’s not currently possible to update the original/primary host of an existing webinar programatically. However, you can add alternative_hosts via the PATCH method for /webinars/{webinarId}. Alternative Hosts can start the meeting on the host’s behalf.

I hope this helps!
