In a SAP BPM notification step, I have this expression:

getExternalUser(DO_SpoedOrderReq/REQ_HEADER/PROJECTNUMMER,"Dutch (Netherlands)", "Europe/Amsterdam")

However, I get "Invalid timezone" message. I also get this when I change the value to UTC, GMT+01:00, etc.

What would the correct timezone for this function be?

Hi Martijn,

Can you replace time zone value from "Europe/Amsterdam" with "Central European Time"? In general, a quick helper to identify acceptable values for locale and time zone in notification step configuration, is to switch to External users > Static values for external users, and check possible / acceptable values in corresponding drop down lists ('Locale' and 'Time Zone'). Values listed there, can be used in corresponding input parameters in the function 'getExternalUser'.

Thanks Vadim, after testing it appears the expression works. Even though the errror message persists in the expression editor..
