We are facing a wierd issue of Incident Area vanishing (just after selection) while creating incident or Problem ticket.  The issue is appearing with a specific combination. Here are the steps to reproduce :

1. Login in ServiceDesk from any role having Incident Creation permission.




2. Navigate to ServiceDesk Tab--> File --> New Incident.




3. New Incident creation page will appear.




4. Parameter combination to reproduce the Incident Area vanishing issue ::




I. Provide value for Impacted Location or Configuration Item (ONLY/ No other value). Try to select an incident area(click on look up and select), it will always disappear after selection with dangling reference in stdlog. Consistent behavior.

II. If either of Impacted Location or Configuration Item and any other field (affected end user/Business Unit/Requester) OR both of Impacted Location and Configuration Item are filled up together the Incident vanishing issue will not appear.




III. If Incident Area is selected as first item, incident area vanishing issue will not appear.




IV. Regardless of any combination if we use type ahed on Incident Area instead of opening a area selection form, the issue will never appears.


We have a customized environment and intention is to get some clue where we actually need to look back for dangling reference issue. (r12.9)
