Date Format Problem in Identity Portal Forms
Article ID: 111871
CA Identity ManagerCA Identity PortalCA Identity Suite
When creating a new user from the Identity Portal, and inserting Activation Date and Expiration Date, using "Date Picker".
If you specify date format as DD/MM/YYYY, the date is presented as MM/DD/YYYY
This is confusing for the end users of the portal, as they are used to dates with DD/MM/YYYY format.
if you save the user the dates are saved with the correct format to the user store
The same format problem is seen when you go to the modify form, in this case the Activation Date is read only

Date picker uses locale so you need to ensure you are using the right settings under localisation tab in the Admin UI.
The locale setting needs to be set for the preferred locale example en_GB uses ddmmyyyy you can add this locale and set it as the default. To add the preferred Locale just select the + sign then select Language from the drop down list then ADD.
