Update details of an existing Contact Object.


Only the Managing AR can update Contact Objects under his management.


The Contact Object's name field CANNOT be updated with Update Contact. If the Contact's name requires modification, a new Object needs to be created, using the Create Contact Request.

Attempting to update the Contact's name field with an Update Contact Request will result in an error.


Valid request is processed immediately.

The information included in the Update Contact Request will override any existing information.

IMPORTANT: all sub tags of the Contact information block must be included in the Request. Information that needs not be updated, needs to be explicitly included in the Request and contain the Contact's current data.
