Error description

  • Audit Event report does not shows correct timestamp for the
    requests that were executed before DST
    
    
    Problem Description:
    
    If any of the request was submitted before DST(Daylight Savings
    Time)
    and audit event report is generated after the DST then report
    shows
    incorrect request submitted time.
    Consider the following example for CST(GMT-6) timezone.
    Suppose request was submitted before November 4 (before Daylight
    Savings
    Time or DST) where View requests showed the date/time for Date
    Submitted
    as November 2, 2012 10:17:36 AM for User Data Change and
    11/2/2012 10:17
    AM in the audit event report. After November 4(DST), View
    request shows
    correct date/time but audit event report(generated after DST)
    shows date
    submitted as 11/2/2012 9:17.
    
    Steps To Recreate:
    1. Set operating system(where ITIM is deployed) timezone to
    CST(GMT-6)
    and set operating system date to November 2, 2012.
    2. Modify any person and note down the request submitted date
    and time.
    3. Generate audit event report and observe the request submitted
    date
    and time for the above request.
    4. Change operating system date to November 6, 2012.
    5. View the request submitted date and time of the above
    request. It is
    displayed correctly.
    6. Again generate audit event report and observe the request
    submitted
    date and time for the above request.
    
    In the audit event report generated in step 2, you will observe
    the 1
    hour less time than the time displayed in the View Request or
    Previous
    Report(generated in step 3)
    
    Expected Behavior:
    Audit event report should not convert the date and time as per
    the DST
    offset. Report should show correct date and time values as
    observed on
    View Requests page.
    
    Environment: TIM 5.1.0.12 IF0042, Windows.
