Zoom web sdk "rename" api usage

I am using sample-webapp shared by zoom for zoom sdk.
I tried using rename API of zoom but it throws error and error code is 3003.
But if I try to rename it on zoom SDK initialised UI interface it allows me.
Which version?

Hi @suchita,

Just for clarification, you’re looking to change the participant name found here correct?



Hi @Michael_Purnell,

No I am looking for change of name under participants name where on hover we have rename option


only host can use this api and change name,

Hello @Prod_JackYang,

Yes I am getting that error, but i am using sample-webapp of zoom-sdk where user joins the meeting with role 0 then how am I able to rename the participants name on the UI instantiated using sample-webapp.

Hi @suchita,

If you’re the guest attendee using the WebSDK, then you’re allowed to change your name within the UI.


Thanks @Michael_Purnell
