3456259 - <TODAY> parameter does not return value as expected - Integration Center


In Integration Center, you want to use the <TODAY> parameter as part of a Calculated Field or Calculated Filter.

The calculation of the <TODAY> should always be the start of the day (00:00:00 UTC), but in some cases you find its value is not calculating as you expected.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a job in Integration Center
  2. Add a Calculated field or Calculated filter, and configure the <TODAY> parameter
  3. During job runtime, you find the <TODAY> parameter is not returning the expected value (00:00:00 of the day)


This is a known issue identified with <TODAY> parameter.

Currently if you execute the job between 00:00 and 12:00 UTC, <TODAY> will be 00:00:00 of the day.

If you execute the job after 12:00 UTC, <TODAY> will be 12:00:00 of the day.


The SF Engineering Team is working on this issue and plan to fix in b2411.

For now, you could schedule your job to run before 12:00 UTC of the day, which ensure the <TODAY> is returning value as expected.

Also you may modify your Calculated Filter based on current behavior, or use other parameters instead.
