Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator work center.
  2. Go to the Business Flexibility view.
  3. Search for Service Request template you want to edit.
  4. Download the template.
  5. Open the template in Adobe LiveCycle Designer.

You cannot do the binding for custom involved party ABC (ABC represents the involved party name).


Custom involved party ABC was not set up as Other Party in Business Configuration.


To bring the custom involved party information in the Service Request form and map it to the other party structure, party role needs to be defined as Other Party.

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work centre.
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select respective implementation project.
  4. Click Open Activity List.
  5. Find Party Role Definition activity.
  6. Check if Party Category is set as other Party.

Then, to bind custom involved party, below points need to be fulfilled:

  • use the binding field called Other Party in the form message type.
  • table binding field: $.ServiceRequest.OtherParty[*]
  • this needs to be modeled as a table in the form template.
