  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The timezone specification is not considered for due date
    calculations of activities when JavaScript expressions are used
    instead of default options provided by IBM Process Designer.
    

Local fix

  • Perform the following actions:
    1. Click the js button to swicth from the JavaScript expression
      to specific timezones.
    2. Choose a specific timezone other than (use default).
    3. Click the js button again to switch back to the JavaScript
      expression.
    

Problem summary

  • Originally, selecting ?(use default)? for the timezone of an
    activity used the default timezone from the configuration file
    (100Custom.xml) and ignored the timezone setting defined for the
    business process definition (BPD) that contained the activity.
    The enhancement to respect the BPD's timezone setting disabled
    the JavaScript expression if the  name of the timezone is not
    ?(use default)?.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that ensures  the
    JavaScript expression for the timezone of an activity is
    considered if the JavaScript expression is selected.
