Why is the incident Subject line the same as the customer's question?
Oracle Service Cloud, May 2011 and newer releases
When a customer asks (submits) a question, an incident is created in Oracle Service Cloud, and the Subject field of the incident is the same as the Subject field the customer completes on the Ask a Question page. However, if you remove the Subject field from the Ask a Question page, Oracle Service Cloud automatically populates the incident’s Subject field with the first 80 characters of the customer’s question. For incidents created with a missing subject from .NET and BUI, the subject is populated with the first 236 characters of the thread entry.
Please note, this functionality also works the same on the mobile customer portal Ask a Question page. See online documentation for more information.
