Setting Due dates in scripts

Hello,

Can anyone tell me what the SetDue method of the Ticket object expects
in terms of date format, i.e. is it Unix or YYYY-MM-DD or something else?

Thanks,

I’ve only had luck with MM-DD-YYYY. Other formats have produced… odd results.

Time::ParseDate is used for parsing ticket’s date input fields. You
could try some advanced variants:

Have named page wrong. me–. Page should be renamed into
"DatesInWebUI" or something like this.On 11/7/05, Steven E. Ames sames@officescape.com wrote:

Interesting. It says that ‘mm/dd/yyyy’ should be parsed correctly. However when I put in (for example) ‘11/08/2005’ it parses it as August 11, 2005 (dd/mm/yyyy which is supposedly UK only). Do I have some sort of UK flag turned on? Weirder stuff is when I try 11/17/2005 and end up with ‘May 13 2006’. Heh.

I test this by changing a due date on a ticket.

Check the value of the $DateDayBeforeMonth setting in your
etc/RT_Config.pm or etc/RT_SiteConfig.pm.
