Date Validation For Message and Feedback Search - Date Range is not Verifed (Doc ID 1227875.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter - Version: 11.1.1.2.0 to 11.1.1.3.0 - Release: to 11g
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


This is an issue when searching using standard Message Board features in WebCenter Spaces.
It is possible to display messages between a particular range of dates by entering values in the fields:
occurring between <date> and <date>.
There is no validation checking of the relative values of these dates - it's possible to enter a date value in the first field which is later than the date entered in the second field.

The documentation implies that the start date should be entered in the first field and end date in the second.
WebCenter Users Guide, Chapter 25 Working with the People Connections Service

'To display messages between a particular range of dates, enter the beginning and end of the range respectively in the fields after Occurring between (Figure 25-67).'


Steps to reproduce:
Login to Webcenter Spaces as any user.
Select '<user>'' link in top right hand area of the page.
Select Message Board tab.
Can search using the fields Occurring between ... and ...
enter values in these fields where the first date is earlier than the second date :
occurring between 05/08/2010 and 22/07/2010.
Search works.
There is no checking that the first date is earlier than the second date.
