SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator work centre.
  2. Go to the Service and Social view.
  3. Click on the E-mail Addresses hyperlink.

    You can see that the e-mail is maintained as a B2B channel.
  4. Go to the Service work centre.
  5. Go to the Tickets view.
  6. In the OWL, find a ticket that were created via the B2B channel.

  7. Click on the customer's name.
  8. Go to the Tickets tab.


Result: You can see that this customer was automatically created with the Ticket.


The configuration in your messaging tool is not correct.

Example scenario:


   To: (E-mail maintained as B2B channel in your system)

Your messaging tool (e.g. Outlook) resends the message to the C4C system:


   To: (This email is maintained as B2C channel in the system)


You need to change your forwarding email configuration to B2B in the messaging tool that you use (for instance, Outlook).

Note: The configuration of customers' email application is out of the scope of SAP Cloud Support.
