Variable - date format problem

(Mirek) #1

I need to use variable with value that has date format “yyyy-MM-dd’T’HH:mm:ss’Z’” f.e. 2015-12-10T01:00:00Z.
Octopus recognizes that it is a date, takes this format and changes it to dd/MM/YYYY HH:mm:ss f.e 10/12/2015 01:00:00. It happens when you click save button.
Can it be changed, not to format inserted string value.? Is it some configuration ?

Hi Mirek,

Thanks for getting in touch! Unfortunately our deserialiser does this when extracting information from the database. It’s not a quick fix. In fact it would be a major change that touches everything in Octopus. So we have scheduled a chat in the new year to see the impact and if we can find a way to not convert dates.

There is no work around I am sorry to say.
