Error description

  • The undocumented systemdate() function works in eProcess and PE
    3.5.x and should be the same as systemtime() function... however
    in PE 4.5.x, using the undocumented version (systemdate()) sends
    the work item to the Malfunction queue
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    1 in Process Designer, create a time field and assign the
    systemdate() function as the default value (or create an assign
    step later and do the same thing or use a function such as
    adddays(systemdate(),1))
    2 validate (always successful) and launch
    3 work item will end up in Malufunction queue
    
    Expected Results:
    produce the correct date/time as per the function
