How to get current logged in user with JWT?

Description
How do I get the current logged in user? I am using users/me but it just returns the account owner and not the current logged in user.

Error
Accessing the users/me endpoint returns the account owner and not the actual logged in user who is a part of the account.

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
JWT

Which Endpoint/s?
users/me

Hey @twalkerjr22_1,

Thank you for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum. Good question! JWT credentials are set at the account level. This means that you only have one set of API Key and Secret. It also means that when you make requests using those credentials, you are making them on behalf of the account owner.

If you want to make requests on behalf of a specific user, and therefore use the /me context you’ll want to create an OAuth App.

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks,
Max
