Issue/Introduction

We have developed a custom Process Automation process that triggers an email notification 30 days prior to the legal document termination date. 

The notification is working for all contacts, except it will not work for one contact. 

Cause

Investigation showed there were two contacts in the system with the same first name, last name, and userid. 

One of the contacts did not contain an email address.  

When triggering the event by changing the asset contact owner field, the contact without an email address had been chosen, rather than the contact that had a valid email address. 

Environment

CA Asset Portfolio Management 14.1

Resolution

The problem was resolved by removing the contact that did not have an email address.
