Reproducing the Issue

  1. Use the Outlook Addin and select an email.
  2. Click Create service request.
  3. Click Create service request again.

You will now have two service requests from this email.


  • In the current addin it is not possible to prevent the creation of multiple service requests from the same email.
  • There are multiple locations, where a service request can be generated and for each click the respective button.
  • In some cases the generation of service requests can vary depending on system load.
  • Each click will generate a message and once the message is processed, the service request will be in the tenant.


  • Do not click the Create service request button more than once, even if the service request is not directly visible.
  • In case multiple service requests were created, delete one of the service requests.
