2774852 - DLs Are Not Working for the Email Channel Scenario


When sending an E-mail to a Distribution List that contains an E-mail Channel, the ticket is not being created.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a DL and add an E-mail Channel inside of it.
  2. Send an E-mail to this DL.

Result: ticket is not created automatically in the system.


When using DLs the system is not able to identify the E-mail as a valid E-mail Channel, hence no tickets are created.

This also results in an error message with the following description: Missing channel e-mail address in recipient fields (TO or CC).

To check this message:

  1. Go to the Administrator work center.
  2. Select Input and Output Management view.
  3. Select the option Web Service Message Monitoring, the message is displayed there.


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.

You can find more details about the services offered by Cloud Service Center . You can contact Cloud Service Center as follows:
