You can create a service order and its service repair lines at the same time by using the Service Order Wizard. Alternatively, you can create a service order that does not include repair lines by using the Create service order page. You also use the New service order line page to add service order lines to a service order, and the Edit service order page to change an existing service order.

NoteNote

Before you can add repair lines to a service order, the service object relation must be set up in the Microsoft Dynamics AX client. For information about service object relations, see View service object relations.
