Any api in ringcentral to create new contact

Hi,

I am struggling to figure it out. Among all the apis out there is there really an api available that can create a new contact?

Creating a new contact with api will automate the process and add someone as a contact in address book . I am not able to find may be I am missing.

Have you checked the API reference here to "Creates personal user contact ":

https://developers.ringcentral.com/api-reference/External-Contacts/createContact

This Address Book API creates a new contact for you

Hi,

We can create two types of contacts using ring central API. One is internal and another one is external. If you are looking to create external contact then you can use a newly added ring central api called address book api to create new contact.
