When using a custom data connector, information that is used in your workflow is sent from an external database. If this connector sends invalid date values, the values cannot not be used and therefore not be selected as an entry in a user form.
The new validation in the case execution will prevent the creation of invalid dates during case execution in your workflows. An invalid year can lead to false data in our database and therefore leads to broken reports and unexpected behaviour of the system.
Does the change affect you?
This change will only affect workflows where
Custom data connectors are being used to send invalid dates
In the next section we explain how you can check your workflows
How can you prevent any issues with the upcoming change?
To avoid any inconvenience we recommend to review and if necessary revise your workflows and custom data connectors to make sure they are configured correctly.
Open “ Services & Connectors” and look for connectors that include data with the type “date”
Check the implementation of the connector and make sure that no invalid dates can be created.
When the validation is released and your workflows are not set up properly you might experience issues in the case execution:
To avoid such issues we’d like to encourage you to check concerned workflow and connectors in your workspace within the next two weeks.
