2898236 - Mismatch in the Number of Contacts From Workcenter and Datasource


You see that the number of contacts in the relevant workcenter is different from number shown in the corresponding data source


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Business Analytics work center
2. Go to Design Data Sources work center view
3. Search for Contact Master Data[CODBPCONTB] data source
4. Open and run the data source
5. Go to Customer work center
6. Go to Contact work center view
7. Select All and remove Obsolete filter
8. Run the query

Upon comparing the number of records obtained on the contacts work center (step 4) with the data source (step 8), you will see that at data source level it has a higher number of records.


In the MDAV (Multi-Dimensional Analytical View) Contact Master Data [CODBPCONTB], it shows the real contact-persons from the contacts object work list in addition the marketing-lead contacts, which can potentially be converted to contacts.


This is the standard behavior of the system and we are working towards creating a more transparent criteria in a future release.
