I'm going through the REST API tut and am presented with a bit of a conundrum. Specifically, I am on Page 34 of the "Writing Data to a REST API (POST & PUT)" Tutorial. In that section, I am told to attempt to edit something and click save. The expected action is that I would be brought back to the Contacts Page. That, however, does not happen. Instead, I am met with an error which says, "Insufficient permissions to update this contact." AFAICT, all my feedback messages look just like to Tut as well as all the conditionals. Any idea what may be going wrong? I've also attached my OAP.

Hi Kevin. I tried replicating what you had done and got exactly the same message (OS 11). But if you try to create a new contact, you then can update it without receiving the error. Hope this helps. They might not want you to update the data that everybody uses, only what you created yourself.

Thank you so much for your help, Anna!
