Reproducing the Issue

Prerequisites: you have a working integration scenario between C4C and ERP for interface MaterialReplicationInitiatedByExternalIn.

  1. Go to the Administrator work center.
  2. Navigate to the General Settings view > Web Service Message Monitoring.
  3. Observe the failed message for interface MaterialReplicationInitiatedByExternalIn, the message fails with the below error:
    "Solve Configuration Issue in ID Mapping for Element ID-CONTENT".


The above error usually occurs when you replicate material XYZ (XYZ represents the ID of the product) from ERP without <ReceiverID></ReceiverID> in the payload and then you replicate the same material with <ReceiverID> </ReceiverID> that equals to <ID></ID>.

You cannot replicate the same material with identical external ID`s.


To solve the issue you can do one of the following:

  • If you want to replicate material from ERP and it should have the same ID`s for both sides, then delete the ID mapping for materials that have been already replicated and set the materials to obsolete in order to avoid duplicates. Restart the failed message.
  • If you want to have random IDs, remove the <ReceiverID> </ReceiverID> from the payload.
