Associating transaction with payment profile via API

I'm creating a profile and payment profile id when creating a transaction and have used both the create profile from transaction api call and the createprofile=true on a create transaction API call.  Both methods don't actually associate that transaction with the payment profile or even the profile.  I would have expected it would.  Regretfully the system we are integrating with requires a transaction be associated with a payment profile.  Sigh.  So, is my only recourse here creating a profile and payment profile first and then using them in a transaction?  I read that the creation of a payment profile is async which could cause issues.  Is it possible to associate a transaction with a payment profile using the create profile from transaction api call?

Re: Associating transaction with payment profile via API

Yes, create the profiles first and then the transaction.

In the other cases, the transaction comes before the profile is generated, so it is not associated with it.
