What is the difference between PUT and POST queries?
Both can be used to create and modify a resource, however:

Can I manage profiles in Context Services with the GMS installation?
No. Context Services does not include the Customer Profile API by default. The Customer Profile API is part of the UCS product and will remain there, along with Contact related information and interactions history. See the Enabling Customer Profiles in UCS for further details. The Service API which is migrated to GMS keeps backward compatibility between APIs and no longer requires the schema provisioning for extensions.
