Invalid property 'startDate' of bean class org.openmrs.Location

We recently upgraded from version 1.7 to 1.12. We are seeing the following error when navigating to Administration > Manage Locations > Select a location from the list. I found a few tickets related to this, but they all appear to be closed (TRUNK-2216"Invalid%20property%20'startDate'%20of%20bean%20class", TRUNK-2121"Invalid%20property%20'startDate'%20of%20bean%20class", TRUNK-4168"Invalid%20property%20'startDate'%20of%20bean%20class"). Any ideas why we are still seeing this issue in 1.12?

Thanks, David Ely Software Developer Children’s Health Services Research IU School of Medicine Phone: 317-278-1642 Email:

startDate should be a field on PersonAddress and not Location, seems like a bug to me. I still think we should some day change PersonAddress to extend Location or have a location field

Should I go ahead and create a ticket for this?

Sure, thanks! Please include in the ticket description the steps to reproduce it.
