Information in this document applies to any platform.



The Global Scheduled Service Start Time is incorrectly set. When setting up a Global Scheduled Service to run "Every three hours", "Every six hours" or "Every 12 Hours" and manually setting the Start Time the Start Time changes when setup is saved.

The Start Time is instead set based on the run duration value set from the current server time.


Successfully set the Start Time for the Global Scheduled Service.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log into P6 Web (Admin Superuser account).
  2. Go Administer | Global Scheduled Services.
  3. Select Publish Security and in Service settings section set Run Service to "Every 12 Hours" and Start Time to "08:00".
  4. Click Save and notice the Start Time changes to a time 12 hours on from current server time.
