Release Note 17. February 2020

Amadeus CSX: Create new profile in case of error "Record Locator not found"

Amadeus removes profiles in case these are not used for over 700 days. During synchronization, this leads into the error message "RECORD LOCATOR NOT FOUND" and hinders the profile from being published to Amadeus CSX. To avoid this situation, we improved the synchronization such that Faces automatically removes the Profile number within Faces and creates a new Amadeus profile.

Note: All existing errors could be fixed by using the "initiate mass-publshing" in the Profile Center "all erroneous".
