JR45899: TIMER EVENTS ARE RESPECTING BLACKOUT CALENDARS ONLY, IF THE RULES ARE ALL BASED ON THE "DATE/TIME RANGE"
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
Timer events are respecting blackout calendars only, if the blackout calendar's rules are all based on the "Date/Time Range". Rules based on the "Weekday/Time Range" are ignored, which causes the timer events to fire at the specified date/time, even if that date/time is ruled-out by the blackout calendar.
Problem Description: In the ProcessAdmin Console, under Event Manager > Blackout Peroids, you can specify blackout periods. During these periods no scheduled events should be fired. There are 2 possibilities to specify these periods: - via Date/Time Range or - via Weekday/Time Range. If you specify Timer events using the Date/Time Range, the system works as expected. This is, during the blackout period no scheduled events are fired. If you specify Timer event using the Weekday/Time Range, the specified intervals are ignored, this is: even during the intervals specified as blackout periods, scheduled events are fired. Problem Summary: The problem was that the algorithm that determines whether a period is blacked out or not had a subtle flaw.
Problem Conclusion: The algorithm that detects the blackout periods was corrected.
