Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the Address block of a user.
  2. Add a record with Same country but different: Present date; Different state, street and House #; Future date; Different state, street and House #; Past date; Different state, street and House #;
  3. Click on History.
  4. Navigate to last record.
  5. Delete this last record. 
  6. All 3 records get deleted. 


  • This is expected behavior in the Address Information portlet.
  • When deleting a past record from history then it is expected to delete all the next records.
