Reproducing the Issue

Post Body:
{
 "CategoryCode": "1",
 "CategoryCodeText": "Person",
 "ContactName": "Sri Ram",
 "FirstName": "Sri",
 "LastName": "Ram",
 "MiddleName": "",
 "NickName": "KKY",
 "RoleCode": "BUP001",
 "MarketingLeadIndicator": false,
 "ContactBusinessAddress": [{
 "ETag": "/Date(1467268227067)/",
 "FirstLineDescription": "Address line 1",
 "PostalAddress": "Flat 103, Sriram nagar colony, Kondapur, USA",
 "PreferredCommunicationMediumTypeCode": "1",
 "SecondLineDescription": "Address line 2",
 "UUID": "29a31f53-614d-4d38-bfdf-f5e0a7d5f24f",
 "PreferredCommunicationMediumTypeCodeT ext": "1"
 }]
}

Cause

 The Entity Type Contact Collection is on Business Object Business Partner and node ROOT and the entity type Contact Business Address is on Business partner relationship and node Root. Inline Cross BO Association creation is not possible.

Resolution

Please follow the below mentioned method to maintain proper contact business address:

1. Create an corporate account .
Sample payload:
{
  "CategoryCode": "2",
  "ExternalKey": "zan_ext_key1",
  "FirstLineName": "FN_Corporate_10",
  "RoleCode": "BUP002"
}

2. Maintain proper address for the account created above.
Sample payload:
{
  "City":"Fremont",
  "CountryCode":"US",
  "POBoxAddress":"false",
  "FormattedAddress":"Fremont CA / US",
  "State":"CA"
}

3. Create a contact.
{
  "CategoryCode": "1",
  "CategoryCodeText": "Person",
  "ContactName": "Sri Ram",
  "FirstName": "Sri",
  "LastName": "Ram",
  "MiddleName": "",
  "NickName": "KKY",
  "RoleCode": "BUP001",
  "MarketingLeadIndicator": false,
}

4. Create an relationship between the account and the contact created.
{
  "AccountUUID":"00163E02-EF34-1EE1-BB93-B81042BD532D",
  "CategoryCode":"BUR001</d:CategoryCode",
  "Main":true,
  "ContactUUID":"00163E02-EF34-1EE1-BB93-B81042BDF32D",
  "DepartmentCode":"0001",
  "FunctionCode":"0002',
  "ReverseDefaultIndicator":true
}

5. Now maintain the account address as the contact business address for the corresponding contact.
{
  "FirstLineDescription": "Address line1",
  "PostalAddress": "Flat 103, Sriram nagar colony, Kondapur,USA",
  "PreferredCommunicationMediumTypeCode":"1",
  "SecondLineDescription": "Address line 2",
  "UUID":"29a31f53-614d-4d38-bfdf-f5e0a7d5f24f",
}

Note: Account address and account creation can be merged and created together inline.
