Can't find contacts in dashboard even after successfully adding them

contacts

#1

I have a rails application in which I send a request to Hubspot to create a new contact every time a user opts-in. I send the request directly from my backend and this is the response I’m getting at the moment:

{“contact”:{“properties”:{“firstname”:“John”,“createdate”:“1491512293879”,“lifecyclestage”:“subscriber”,“email”:“johnsmith200@gmail.com”,“lastname”:“Smith”},“is_contact”:true,“vid”:701}}

So this means that it is creating the contact successfully.

Even when I try to check if the user with the above email exists then I still get a proper response back from Hubspot.

#<Hubspot::Contact:0x007fe19b9544d8 @properties={....}, , @is_contact=true, @vid=701>

But I can’t find the user on my dashboard in All Contacts list. So where exactly are these contacts getting added?

I added a property lifecyclestage to add the contact in the specific list I guess even that doesn’t do anything because I can’t find the contact under All Contacts
