Update contact property "contact owner"


#1

I need to automate changing the contact owner name ("name": "hubspot_owner_id","label": "Contact owner" ) to null, every time the associated Company Owner gets set to null, however I dont know how to go about this. I cant do update contact, because the property "hubspot_owner_id" returns a 400 error. And updating a contact property Im not sure and might be completely wrong on this one, but is not for a specific user so I cant do this this way. Is there any other way I can accomplish this?

Hi @mario,

Can you give me some more details on the issue(s) you're running into? You should be able to set the Contact Owner property to 'No Owner' by passing a blank string ("") as the property value. You should be able to use the 'Update a contact' endpoint, something like this:

'POST https://api.hubapi.com/contacts/v1/contact/vid/122051/profile?hapikey=demo'
//Body:
{
  "properties": [
    {
      "property": "hubspot_owner_id",
      "value": ""
    }
  ]
}
