OFBiz Tutorials – Looking Up Orders

HotWax SystemsPublished: Updated:

Your OfBiz site is functioning, orders are rolling through and everything is gravy, but occasionally an order needs to be found for a whole plethora of reasons.  Luckily, there are a few different ways for an administrator or customer service representative to search for that order, from which point they can make the necessary adjustments (covered in other OFBiz tutorials).
To start, lets make sure that:
• The user has at lease the role of a Customer Service Representative or Administrator.
• Order(s) have been entered and exist in the system
From here, there are two basic ways to search for an order, so we can find almost any order no matter the information we have.

Lookup Orders using Find Order

  1. Choose “Customer Service” from “Applications Menu”.
