Zoom Removing Me As Alternative Host

I am making a call to create a Zoom Meeting and as soon as I am added as an alternative host, I am immediately removed. I list myself as the alternative host and then I get an email immediately removing me as alternative host.

The email says “You are no longer an alternative host for this meeting, which means that you cannot start and end the meeting. You can still join the meeting as a participant at the specified time.”

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

Which Endpoint/s?
Create Meeting

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
I use my auth token to connect as a different user and add my email address as an alternative host.

Screenshots (If applicable)
If applicable, add screenshots to help explain your problem.

Additional context
Add any other context about the problem here.

I figured it out. It looks like the parameter “use_pmi” is no longer set to “false” by default. I had to pass that parameter and set it to “false” and allowed me to stay as the alternative host.

Hey @baohanhai,

You can use the Create or Update endpoints and add alternate_hosts.
