Is there a REST API call that, given the meeting id, I can get back the friendly name of the user who owns the meeting?

I'm trying to display a more user-friendly meeting title when a user just calls into a bluejeans room. Since I only have the meeting id, is there a REST call that I can display 'John Doe' as the meeting 'name' given *only* the meeting id and/or passcode?

Hello,

I talked to our API team and they said this is a feature they could add to the platform. There is not currently a supported way to query for this information.

If you want to show the title of the meeting instead of the owner's name, you can use the getMeeting API method.

Now there's an API to get the owner's full name for a given meeting ID and passcode, as you originally requested.

Check out my guide for using the getMeetingPreferences API method.
