2447468 - E-mail Responses Not Reflected In Tickets


You are not receiving any e-mail replies in the Ticket when the Ticket status is Closed.

Also, a new Ticket is not created when the customer replies on the Ticket with status Closed.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Service work center.
  2. Go to Tickets view.
  3. Open ticket 123(where 123 is the Ticket ID).
  4. Navigate to Interactions facet.

The customer has sent e-mails to Ticket 123 but they are not visible under Interactions.


Once the status of a Ticket is set to Closed  then no changes can be done to it.

When an email is sent out it is sent with the subject [Ticket : 123].When the customer responds to it, the C4C system identifies the Ticket based on the Subject and then associates it with the existing Ticket. On such cases, the email goes to the Unassociated Email with the reason Reference Ticket is Already Closed.

Hence, a new Ticket cannot be created.


This is the standard behavior of the system.
