Last updated on JUNE 25, 2017

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After clearing a date field in the EBS connector it sends "4712-01-02" as date instead of clearing the date. Following are the steps to reproduce the issue:

1. Update the "effective date to" to something, say 2015-12-31.  This will work.
2. Now clear the "effective date to".  This will send "4712-01-02" as end_date in table fnd_user.  

Expected result: the end_date should be null.
