Difference between "account_id" and "id" in https://api.zoom.us/v2/users/me

The documentation at https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/api-reference/zoom-api/users/user has useless descriptions for the fields “account_id” (“The User’s account ID”) and “id” (“User ID”).

What are these IDs exactly? Does “account_id” refers to the “account owner” of the user? And “id” refers to the user itself?

So for example, if a user switches owners, their “id” will stay the same, but their “account_id” will change?

Hey @odrilon,

Happy to clarify!

Regarding account_id, this refers to the immediate account under which the user belongs. The id refers to the unique identifier for the user. If they were to switch accounts, their user-specific information would remain the same (including User ID).

Let me know if this helps to clarify,
