2656369 - Time Stamp in an Extension Field Does Not Reflect the Current Time in Your Time Zone.


When changing the field definition of an Extension Field, the time stamp does not reflect the current time in your time zone.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

Prerequisite: You have created an Extension Field ABC (ABC stands for an Extension Field) in for example the Accounts TI.

  1. Go to the Customers workcenter.
  2. Go to the Accounts view.
  3. Open any Account.
  4. In Adaptation Mode, open the Field Definition of the Extension Field ABC.
  5. Apply any changes and Save.

Result: The time stamp Changed At does not reflect the current time in your time zone, nor the correct system time.


The Extension Field metadata are only showing the server time zone which is UTC for servers in UTC time zone. Other time zone settings apply for eg servers in the Americas.


This is the expected system behaviour.
