2654986 - Target Group Contains Duplicate Members


Target Group contains duplicate members.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

This is the same for both static and dynamic Target Groups, the example below is for a dynamic TG.  

  1. Go to the Sales Campaign work centre.
  2. Go to the Target Groups work view.
  3. Create a new target group with member determination enabled.
  4. Go to the Member Determination facet.
  5. Add a new 
  6. Maintain determination.
  7. Configure the Target Group.
  8. Verify on the Member facet that the same contact is determined more than once and it is related to different accounts.

Because of this, when you add this target group to a Sales Campaign, the contact will receive the campaign for each time that it is defined on the target group.


This behavior is caused, for exampple, by dynamic target groups where the contact is based on marketing attribute conditions. All the contacts with their associated accounts will be added which have the same marketing attributes maintained.

The system verifies the unique relationship with contacts - not the email address associated to it.


This is the current system behavior. The condition that the user had maintained is returning correct result in dynamic target group.

If you need that the the contact defined is not duplicated, you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.
