Symptoms

Email Center 12.0.4 SR Creation

Actual Behavior
When a mail is sent from Email Center the SR channel is not coming up as email. Even after profile option "Service Default Channel" has been set to "Email" for all used Email Center responsibilities on responsibility level. But when creating a service request from any of these responsibilities, system ignores value and sets "PHONE" as channel, which is the value set on site level.

Expected Behavior
When a mail is sent from the Email Center, the SR channel should reflect correctly.
