Just as an additional note in addition to the pull request, to clarify this issue, the issue is that the create action should not be supported on this subcollection. The actions being returned were invalid.

    Return correct subcollection actions
    Right now, sub collection actions that are specified on a specific collection (i.e., :generic_object_subcollection_actions: specified on :services: collection) are not taking precedence to those sub collection actions defined on the collection itself (i.e. :subcollection_actions: defined under :generic_objects:). This is causing incorrect actions to be returned, causing the users to believe that they have actions that they do not, such as :create: for the generic objects sub collection on services.
