2747666 - Get Appointment on Tickets Does Not Work with Start Date Equal to End Date


You are working with Service Tickets and would like to schedule an Appointment, however, when trying to get the dates for it you see error message: "Get Appointment Search Interval is in past".


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Service work center.
  2. Select the Tickets view.
  3. Open Ticket ID XYZ (XYZ represents the Ticket ID).
  4. Go to the Service and Repair tab (on HTML) or the Items tab (on RUI).
  5. Select Line Iteam 123 (123 represents the Line Item for which you would like to create the Appointment for).
  6. Click on Appointment.
  7. On the newly opened pop-up add Start Date and End Data as DD.MM.YYYY (DD.MM.YYYY represents the current date).
  8. Click on Get Appointment.
  9. Error message: "Get Appointment Search Interval is in past" is shown.


Although the fields show only date, to be compliant to the backend, system adds hours to it as well. On this case, the system always add hours equal to 00.00.00, hence the interval Start Date DD.MM.YYYY, End Data DD.MM.YYYY is not valid. If you need to get the current date, you can use Start Date DD.MM.YYYY and End Date D+1.MM.YYYY (D+1.MM.YYYY represents the next day).


This is the current expected system behavior.
