1961448 - Why the Changes to the Business Partner is Reflecting in all its Business Partner Roles?


You have made a change to a Business Partner in Business Partner Data work center or changes to a Business Partner Role in one of the work center but the changes are reflecting in other work centers where the same Business Partner Role exists. Your requirement is that, you wants to see the changes only in that specific work center and no where else.


Any changes that is being performed in the Business Partners will always reflect in the respective roles of other work centers. The reason being, the Business Partner is so called the Business Partner template and all the roles are basically the part of it. Secondly, the screen that you access in the Business Partner Data work center is actually the master work center and any views related to this which you are accessing in other work centers is actually the same (copy of this).

This is expected system behavior.

For example: The Contacts view in Account Management work center is one and the same as the Contacts view in the Business Partner data work center.
