    Hi guys,

    Is there a way on the contact API to get a contact by email instead of by id,
    that way I can know for sure if the contact already exist or not

    Is there any other way to prevent the creation of duplicate contacts

    Now it’s impossible to get contact by email. But anyway it will not help you because contact could has more than one email and it’s correct that multiple contacts have the same email (e.g. two contacts have the private emails and corporate one assigned).




    Thanks for the hint, I guess the main concern is to keep consistent our frontend/backend with OroCrm and consolidate all our contacts coming from different places in one place, the CRM.

    So I believe, we have to build some logic on top of OroCrm to deal with our own scenarios.

    So I’m looking for a unique identifier, between our customers from our shopping cart and Crm.
    Probably I will have to extend contact entity to deal with this or is this something that OroCrm has already built-in?

    This is an important topic for us as well. Unique identifier depends on data channel (for example email for ecommerce customers, phone number for POS, etc) and we are going to solve this problem as well as will add email to contact filters list.
