You can cancel a service order or service order line from the service order itself, or you can cancel multiple service orders by running a periodic job.


Service orders cannot be canceled if the stage of the service order does not allow cancelation, if the service order has item requirements, or if the service order has already been posted.

  1. Click Service management > Common > Service orders > Service orders. Select the service order, and on the Action Pane, click Cancel order.

  1. Click Service management > Common > Service orders > Service orders. Double-click the service order that contains the line you want to cancel.

  2. Select the service order line that you want to cancel, and then click Cancel order line to change the status of the line to Canceled.

To reverse the cancellation of a service order line and change the status back to Created, click Revoke cancel.
