V1 API Problem With CreateNewContact

V1 API Problem With CreateNewContact

Using V1 API we get 400 Bad Request returned from server when attempting to upload a new contact individual using CreateNewContact API. I have a suspicion this relates to the problem I reported recently in item titled..."using version 1 api Not able to retrive more than 50 contacts from Do Not Mail list.".


Thanks in advance...Mike Cravitz


Hi Mike,


400 error when creating a Contact is usually related to a data issue.  Have you looked at the returned error message to see what we are saying is wrong?  400 Bad Request is a data validation failure and we usually return a detailed error of what the problem was, or at least which node had the bad data.  If you could share your code, that would help as well.
