A SOAP web services call that includes a date value that is not a whole integer fails with an error message that indicates that the date value is out of range but it is not.

Example 1:

When the following attribute value pair is included in a createRequest web services call:


the response returned is:

<faultstring>Invalid date value '1493157600.0'. Out of valid range (0 to 2147483647)</faultstring>
<ErrorMessage>Invalid date value  '1493157600.0'. Out of valid range (0 to 2147483647)</ErrorMessage>

Example 2:

For a number format which uses "," as the separator between the integer value and the fractional value for the locale, such as in the following pair:


the response returned is:

"Invalid date value '1496275200,336'. Out of valid range (0 to 2147483647)"

CA Service Desk Manager 14.1.03 and 17.0

Drop the fractional part of the date before providing it as the value of a date in a web services call.

Additional Information:

The Date data type is defined as an integer, which is a whole number.  For more information, please see: Definition of the Date data type
