UTC date time different when record created into CRM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Currently I having time zone issue when saving a record into CRM.

    In my case, the field named "Get Date" has assigned a date time value : 2012-02-02 11:35:27 UTC+8

    And I use the method from SDK to parse into JSON object.

    From jsonEntity, I am able to see the "Get Date" has converted to UTC format, which is : 2012-02-02T03:35:27Z

     var jsonEntity = window.JSON.stringify(object);
      $.ajax({ type: "POST",
       contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
       datatype: "json",
       url: this._ODataPath() + type + "Set",
       data: jsonEntity,
       beforeSend: function (xhr) {
        //Specifying this header ensures that the results will be returned as JSON.             
        xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");
       success: function (data, textStatus, xhr) {
       error: function (xhr, textStatus, errorThrown) {

    However, when the save completed and I query the UTC date from filtered view, the value is incorrect : 2012-02-01 21:35:27

    I tried to set CRM user personal setting to UTC+4, the value saved in CRM also incorrect : 2012-02-02 01:35:27

    The only correct time zone is using UTC+2 in DB, 2012-02-02 03:35:27 which is same timezone with CRM server.

    Anyone face this problem before?
