Bug Report for Contacts merging behavior

Started by Evgeny Seleznev -   in API Endpoints

Hello, I've got this unexpected behavior after merging contacts

For example:
We have invoice INV-XXX for contact A
We merge contact A into contact B
The "Contact" field in the Invoice object has changed, but the "UpdatedDateUTC" field did not

This behavior breaks the logic for any incremental-based exporting because any external system that is using the "If-Modified-Since" header for "GET /Invoices" endpoint will never know about this change
Please can you contact us using this link contact support and provide the name of your API application and the Client ID.
We can then investigate further for you and raise an issue if needed
