Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new Service Order.
  2. Select a Spare Part with the Item Type SHIP.
  3. Process the Service Order until you trigger the Spare Part Delivery.
  4. Enter a Serial Number for created Spare Part that is referenced to Registered Product ABC. (ABC represents the Registered Product ID)
  5. Release the Spare Part Delivery.
  6. When You open the Master Data for Registered Product ABC, you see no Account Assignment and no Warranty Assignment as you would expect.


The Warranty and Account Assignment of Registered Products are designed to happen only in Over the Counter Sales, 3rd Party and stardard Outbound Deliveries. In a Spare Part delivery the assumption is that the delivered Spare Parts remain property of the selling/service executing company and no assignment takes place. This is the intended system behaviour.


You can manually assign the Account and Warranty information in the Registered Product Master Data. You can also create a PDI solution to achieve an automatic assignment.
