  • Multiple / Duplicate leads - Error 502 Workaround

    Hi, I need a way to add new leads with the same name as another lead. Right now adding a new lead with the same name as another will give me error 502.
    We take a record of every call that comes in and sometimes the caller does not give us their name. So, we just use a generic John Doe name or make one up everytime. But that isn't the best solution for this.

    So, Is there a workaround for adding multiple leads with the same name or maybe a better solution for this?

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    As I understood you use API. There must be error 409. You need to pass forceDuplicate: true with your payload to prevent the error.

      No, we are not using the API for this. Just entering records manually.
      If we enter in more that 3 leads using the same name we get back the 502 error.

      Right now, we are manually adding an arbitrary number after the last name to get around this. For example: "John Doe 123"

      This is what the console displays when we try to save using a duplicate name.

        I don't remember any logic in EspoCRM that could produce 502 error. Maybe it's a server specific issue?
