Making another participant host during a live meeting via API

Is it possible to change the host of a live meeting via API? This would be the equivalent of the “Make Host” action available in the Zoom client. I’ve tried to use PATCH # /meetings/{meetingId} to modify the schedule_for and the alternative_host properties but those seems to only affect the host before the meeting starts.

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

Which Endpoint/s?
PATCH # /meetings/{meetingId}

The suggested thread does not answer my question.

Hey @ste,

Unfortunately we do not have this functionality available in the API.

Feel free to add this as a feature request here: #feature-requests

That being said, we do have this in our Client SDKs. For example, here is how to do it in our iOS SDK.
