2974919 - Obsolete Contact Remains as Main Account Contact After Merge


For an account, contact ABC is maintained as main contact. Now contact ABC is merged with contact XYZ who remains as survivor. But ABC remains as main contact for the account.

(Note: ABC and XYZ represent different Contact IDs)


SAP Cloud For Customer


Prior to the merge, beside the main contact ABC, also the other Contact XYZ was maintained as contact of this account. In such cases, the merge triggers no adjustment of the main contact attribute.


The observed merge result is in accordance with the intended system behavior. In case it is your intention to change this system behavior, you may create  a new feature request via the Continuous Influence program.
