Reproducing the Issue
Go to the Customers work center.
Go to the Accounts work center view.
- Edit an account ABC and go to the Relationships facet. (ABC represents the account name)
- Click Add to add a new relationship, in the Business Partner field, select the account ABC.
- Once you click Add to save, the error "You can't create XYZ Relationship between identical business partners" occurs.
Self-referencing relationships are not allowed in C4C, because they do not have semantical meaning.
This is current standard behavior. Relationships should reflect the account's relationship to other business partners.
