Create a *non subscriber* contact via APISOLVE
Nov 19, 2019 12:28 PM
I am a developer and we have a Hubspot integration that creates and updates contacts into our clients' Hubspot account.
We noticed that shortly after a contact is created we get "The lifecycle stage for this contact was updated to subscriber" on the contact.
Is there a way to create a contact via API without it being automatically updated into subscriber?
We may push some contacts that did not opt in and we want to prevent this behavior.
Thanks in advance

Thanks for sharing your use case!
In this case, I do have two options that I'd love to share with you:
1. We can create a workflow to target only contact created via API and a lifecycle stage == Subscriber:
And change the lifecycle stage to 'Other'.
2. Create a custom lifecycle stage property (as the default lifecycle property is non-editable) and for this you can refer to this community thread: HubSpot Community - Quick Tip: How to create a custom Lifecycle Stage ... - HubSpot Community.
