I'm having trouble creating a new contact with the Exact Target rest api https://www.exacttargetapis.com/contacts/v1/contacts

When posting the following json object to the api

            "name":"Email Addresses",
                            "name":"Email Address",
                            "name":"HTML Enabled",

The response I get back is

            "message":"An exception occurred while processing the request item @ Index #0. [ReferenceID: 90082a2b-fe00-4efa-92ee-b203b768211e]"

Any ideas what the problem might be?


Salesforce marketing cloud restful api is not mature enough.

That's why it doesn't have a proper error messages.

I've been through the same issue with something@example.com.

It's all about the domain, I changed the email's domain into my company's domain and succeeded.
