When attempting to import a UDF field with a date datatype the following error occurs,

com.primavera.integration.client.xml.xmlimporter.XMLImporterException: Invalid time format in date field (2020-11-20T00:00:00.000Z): 00:00:00.000Z.  Valid date format is YYYY-MM-DD[THH:MM[:SS]]

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create an import XML
2. Edit the XML and create a UDF of type date with the date format yyyy-mm-dd't'hh:mm:ssz e.g. 2020-11-20T00:00:00.000Z



3. Run the import using the API
