SERVD — Availability objects CurrentLocalSystemTime is meaningless

  • Key: SERVD-13
  • Legacy Issue Number: 18664
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: HealthConnex ( Brian Postlethwaite)
  • Summary:

    The Availability Object has a CurrentLocalSystemTime property which is not usefull for handling timezones.
    The specification need to ensure that timezone information is correctly handled on the AvailableAt property.

    This could be handled by ensuring that all callers only interact with the ServD system using UTC, and all dates in the system are assumed to be UTC (or converted to UTC) for processing/storage/return values

  • Reported: ServD 1.0b1 — Sun, 14 Apr 2013 04:00 GMT
  • Disposition: Resolved — ServD 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    Remove the CurrentLocalSystemTime property from the Availability object as specified in Section 8.8.3 on Page 79. All the date-time properties must have the timezone specified and handled accordingly. The Directory must process all date-times in UTC, converting where required.
    The description for the AvailableAt property in this object is also unclear, need to reword it.
