This pipelet creates a new Customer using the supplied Login (i.e. Username),Password, and an optional CustomerNo. If the optional CustomerNo is not specified, the system automatically assigns a customer number based on the customer sequence numbers configured for the site and/or organization.
The pipelet exits with an ERROR if any of the following conditions are encountered:
A valid Login name is between 1 and 256 characters in length (not counting leading or trailing whitespace), and may contain only the following characters:
Note: a storefront can be customized to provide further constraints on characters in a login name, but it cannot remove any constraints described above.
A valid CustomerNo is between 1 and 100 characters in length (not counting leading or trailing whitespace). Commerce Cloud Digital recommends that a CustomerNo only contain characters valid for URLs.
If the customer search API is configured to use the new Search Service, note that the new customer might not be found immediately via the search service (there is a slight delay in updating the index). Use the customer object returned by this pipelet instead.
