Reproducing the Issue

Suppose you have Accounts which are replicated to C4C with Alphanumeric External ID.

  1. Go to Customers Workcenter.
  2. In the Accounts view, select the Query as All Accounts.
  3. In the Advanced filter, Enter the Alphanumeric External ID of an Account in the External ID field.
  4. Click the Search button.

You will notice that there are no search results though the Account with that External ID exists.


The Alpha Numeric conversion during search is not supported for the Account External ID field.


Account search based on Alphanumeric External ID is not supported and it is a standard behavior.
