Renamed user types - January 2020 Follow

Zoom is updating user types to make it clearer if a user is consuming a license or not. As of January 19, 2020, the user type pro will be called licensed and the user type corp will be called on-prem. The user type basic will still be called basic.

This change will not affect your account type (Basic, Pro, API, Business, Enterprise or Education) and requires no action on your part.
