[REST] Getting error "The contact is not belong to this account"




You are getting this error " {"Errors":[{"Code":"INVALID_VALUE","Message":"The contact is not belong to this account."}],"Success":false} " when trying to make a POST create account call(https://www.zuora.com/developer/api-reference/#operation/Object_POSTAccount).


This error pops up when you are trying to create an account in "Active" status.




Creating an account in UI is different from creating an account in Rest API. In UI, you can create the account and the BillTo/SoldTo contact at the same time. However, in Rest API, you will need to use the endpoint https://www.zuora.com/developer/api-reference/#operation/Object_POSTContact. The response will contain the contact ID for you to use for https://www.zuora.com/developer/api-reference/#operation/Object_POSTAccount. Then from there you can create an account in "Active" status.
