How to assign meeting host to a user not in our Zoom account via API


Hi there,


We are creating Zoom meetings on behalf of our clients, whose Zoom account is not under our Zoom account.


We want to enable the waiting room feature, but this will prevent our client to join the Zoom meeting. So the current process is: Create a meeting with waiting room off -> client join the meeting -> client claim host using host key -> client enable waiting room.


We want to shorten this process, making our client host the meeting and enable the waiting room after creating the meeting, so our client can join and no need to do anything.


The alternative host does not suit our case as it can only assign to Zoom users within our account.


We noticed that you can assign the host role to any participant within the meeting, can this be achieved via API? If yes it can solve our problems.
