2918508 - Ticket Is Created From An Incoming E-Mail With the Wrong Account


Ticket is created from an incoming e-mail with the wrong account.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

A contact is assigned to two different Accounts, Account ABC and Account DEF (ABC and DEF represents the Account ID's). An incoming e-mail from the contact comes in the system, and Account ABC is assigned to the Ticket while you expect Account DEF to be maintained in the ticket, as the contact has the Main flag for Account DEF.


When a contact is associated with multiple accounts:

  • If the same e-mail address is maintained for all the relationships with the account, the system considers the account randomly, and not based on any indicator.
  • If different e-mail addresses are maintained for account relationships, the system considers the account as per the sender e-mail.


Currently the system is not considering any indicator, like the main indicator, to select the account. This is the standard behavior of the system.

If you need this functionality urgently you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.
