There is the address-book api: https://developer.ringcentral.com/api-docs/latest/index.html#!#RefCreateContact

So you can "add a new personal contact to the user address book."

But I am afraid that it's not visible to everyone because an user only sees his own address book.  You might need to add contact to every one's address book.

I have 9 users in the system and there will be an expansion of users, and I will each time have to add 20-40-50 thousand contacts for newly created users?

This is nonsense, right?

Yes, agreed. However there is no company shared address book.

People are using virtual extension as a workaround: https://community.ringcentral.com/ringcentral/topics/need-shared-address-book-for-all-phones But to be frank I don't  know how it works exactly.
