When creating an intrabank contact, you can pass either the accountId or accountNumber to link the account.

Field Type Description
accountNumber string account number of the intrabank contact
accountId string account ID of the intrabank contact


Note that contacts have the three possible types in  the Contact Object: others, selfAch, and selfIntrabank.

If the user is linking intrabank accounts owned by the same entity, this is referred to as a selfIntrabank contact.

In this situation, they should create a separate contact for the selfIntrabank link using only the intrabank sub-object.

If users try to include a self-owned intrabank account when creating a standard others contact, they receive an error such as "EC_CONTACT_INVALID_SELF_INTRABANK_REQUEST" and "Invalid self intrabank request". They should remove the intrabank sub-object and create a separate contact for the selfIntrabank link.
