How to join meeting as host using Web SDK


I am using web SDK to join a meeting and server-to-server OAuth for creating a meeting.

When joining the meeting i am passing the Role=1 in signature to join as host.

but On the admin dashboard, it shows as a guest …

I want to join as Host because i don’t want the "Your call is being recorded message " Popup.
Auto recording in enabled by the admin…

I am using the latest web SDK.
