Having an issue with current time and daylight saving time


On the TRIRIGA Platform 3.4.2.1, the currenttime() function via workflow now seems to be off by an hour. Our system is Eastern Time Zone and the People Profile Time Zone is GMT -5. The GMT is now -4 for daylight saving time. In the 3.4.x platform, it seems that the system setting for default time zone has changed from EST (or PST). Instead, the setting is now: SYSTEM_DEFAULT_TIMEZONE = America/New_York. Is anyone else seeing this issue on 3.4.2?

As a clarification, when I changed my time zone to Pacific Time (GMT -8), the times in the queries are all off by an hour. It should be GMT -7 for Daylight Saving (but displaying GMT-8).  The audit actions on a record seem to be correct in logging the correct time (by respecting my time zone preference).

It’s a known issue and fixed in 3.4.2.2 [IV79517].
