    This is a bug in 4.1 which is logged with ADAPT01710199

    Check the note below

    930605 - BI4.1 - The time stamp in the prompt is changing every time on refreshing the report in HTML Mode of WebI Report



    Following are the fixes for Business Intelligence Platform 4.1

    • BI 4.1 SP01 Patch05
    • BI 4.1 SP02 Patch01
    • BI 4.1 SP03
    • BI 4.1 SP03 Patch1
    • BI 4.1 SP04

    For a possible workaround, the Java Application server hosting BI Launchpad can be set to run using the UTC timezone to prevent time offsets in the prompt.

    Hi!

    The Problem exists again. We have 4.1 SP6 patch 3 ...

    summer / wintertime Problem. Workaround with UTC is not a good one... In this days it must be possible for a big Company like SAP to check summer/wintertime for all Versions.

    We had this Problem in former days XI3.1 also ... It worked fine till 4.1 SP4 patch6 but when we updated we had the issue again 😠...

    Incident is open...

    :-/ Tom

      Hi Thomas,

      same problem with 4.1 SP6 Patch2.

      Viewing a webi-report and selecting date input prompts is working fine (2015-12-14 00:00:00)

      Scheduling a webi-report, selecting date input prompts and applying values, converts timestamp values to +2h. (2015-12-14 02:00:00).

      Our timezone is UTC+2 (DST)

      Any response from SAP?

      Regards,

      Tanel

    Adding the following parameter under 'Tomcat configuration - Java Tab' resolves the issue on windows.

    -Duser.timezone=UMT

    I would like to know if someone has tried this workaround on Linux?
