You change the Ship-To Address in Service Order via Involved Parties tab, however, the change does not update the Service Location Address as expected.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Service Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Service Order Processing view.
  3. Search for ABC (ABC represents the Service Order ID).
  4. Navigate to the Involved Parties tab.
  5. Update the address of Ship-To party.
  6. In the General tab, the Service Location Address does not update accordingly.


The automatic update of Service Location Address does not happen because a manual change on the Service Location Address was done before.


The automatic update of Service Location Address only happens, when changing the Ship-To Address in Involved Parties was done first. If any manual change has been done prior, this automatization does not happen.

However, there's a possible workaround for this case:

  • You can make a dummy change in the Location of Service Provision, like change from On-Site to Supplier, then back to On-Site
  • The address will update as expected.
