Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Administrator Workcenter. 
  2. Navigate to Sales and Campaign Settings. 
  3. Go to Define Rules for Opportunity Parties.
  4. Add a new Row with a new Party Role. 
  5. Go to any existing Opportunity.
  6. You can see that the role isn't automatically assigned.


When a Party Role is added in the Determination Rule, the new Rule is valid only for new Opportunities or Opportunity changes (which trigger new Party Determination).

The new Party Role cannot be automatically added to an existing Opportunity without doing a relevant change. Generally speaking, when Master Data or Business Configurations are changed, the existing opportunities will not be automatically adapted.


This is the currently system behavior.
