2557256 - Leads Duplicate Check Does Not Return Any Results


Lead Duplicate Check does not return any results even when there is a Lead with the exact same information maintained.


SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales work centre.
  2. Go to the Leads View.
  3. Select the New button.
  4. Enter a value in all the Mandatory fields.
  5. Select the Check for Duplicates button.
  6. No Data displayed.


A cause could be that PDI logic is maintained that has hidden the Name field in creation of a Lead ID. So when the Duplicate Check gets called there is no Name for the Lead. As the Name contains considerable weightage and given the other parameters for Duplicate Check are initial like Qualification Code, Priority, Category & Source are not entered, there is no match found.


In order for the Duplicate Check to return the expected results, the Name field must be visible and include a value on Lead creation.
