Sometimes we receive multiple emails for a single event even though we have configured to send notification only once.


Open the stdlog file as per the time stamp and see whether you get messages similar to below:

If yes then please check the UUID of the contact System_AHD_Generated whether it is ?793ED69B4E87A545BD8E911834D829FC?.

If it is different then please follow the below steps in restoring its correct value:

  1. Take an extract of ca_contact table using the command:
    pdm_extract ca_contact > cnt.txt

  2. Take a back up of cnt.txt

  3. Open cnt.txt and compare the uuid of system_ahd_generated whether it is 793ED69B4E87A545BD8E911834D829FC or different.

  4. Open cnt.txt and correct the UUID to 793ED69B4E87A545BD8E911834D829FC and save the file.

  5. Load it back using the command pdm_load -f cnt.txt

    # From now on there will no multiple emails generated.

  6. If it is different run the below command:
    pdm_load -r -f cnt.txt
