Issue/Introduction

An element that was added using CA Change Manager Enterprise Workbech (CMEW) after 4PM Pacific time, the "Current Date" is showing the next day.

Example:  Element added at 4:45 PST on  6/10/2020 is showing current date as 6/11/2020 in CMEW.
 

Environment

Release : 18.0 12.0 

Component : CA CM Enterprise Workbench, CA Endevor SCM 

Resolution

The current date on the element list is calculated as the TimeZoneOffset subtraced from the original mainframe time.  If the Mainfram time is 6/10/2020, 19:19, subtracting -5 (the same as adding t) yields 6/11/2020 - 00:16. This actually represents the correct UTC (GMT+0) time.  To resolve the problem and see the correct mainframe dates/times in the current date column, then you need to set TimeZoneOffset=00.00 in the Endevor.cfg. Below is an example of what the endevor.cfg should look like with the change:

Type=EndevorServer
Name=cmewq702


Jobname=CMEW123
Program=BC1PAPI0
Hostname=MYMFHST


GenPkgIdEnabled=N
TimeZoneOffset=00:00


Signoffdelay = 6
Signontimeout = 60
Recvtimeout = 200
Spawnwaittime = 60


EncodingString=Cp01140
LFS.EncodingString=ISO-8859-1


LFS.MaxNumberOfFiles=0
LFS.MaxNumberOfData=0


Trace=NO
Tracer=ALL

To update the endevor.cfg file you should use the deployment Tool.

For more information on the configuraiton files and the deployment tool please review the CMEW Implementation Guide.
