SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2.  Select Overview view.

  4.  Select Migrate customers using the Migration Tool.
  5.  Upload the Migration Template using the Upload option.

In the web service, the telephone attribute/node is wrongly modeled.

It should be modeled as a message node element with 0*2 cardinality, then it would be possible to add both the landline and the mobile phone.


Try to update the telephone information for a contact person of an account via the webservice "ManageCustomerIn"

Follow sample Payload:

  <n0:CustomerBundleMaintainRequest_sync_V1 xmlns:n0=" ">



  <Customer actionCode="04">


  <ContactPerson actionCode="04" workplaceTelephoneListCompleteTransmissionIndicator="true">













 NOTE: Here XXX = Account ID , YYY= Contact ID , ZZZ= Telephone Number

 Important is, that you need to pass the complete list of telephone numbers at the same time.

 It is only allowed to pass workplaceTelephoneListCompleteTransmissionIndicator = "true"
