When Importing a Project Using P6 Web Services Milestone Finish Dates Roll to the Next Day (Doc ID 2446402.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


When importing Finish Milestones using P6 Web Services the finish dates roll to the next day. For example, the date 04-Sep-18 05:00 PM rolls to 05-Sep-18 08:00 AM. The calendar assigned to the milestone is working at 04-Sep-18 05:00 PM. When importing through P6 Web or P6 Professional the dates are set to 04-Sep-18 05:00 PM.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a SoapUI Import Request to import a project with finish milestones that are on the last hour of the work day. For example, on an Activity assigned a 5 day a week calendar working 8 am to 5 pm, create a finish milestone with a date of 04-Sep-18 05:00 PM.

2. Check the milestone dates in P6 Web. The milestone finish dates will be set to 05-Sep-18 08:00 AM
3. Import the same XML (myproject.xml) into P6 Web. The milestone finish dates will be 04-Sep-18 05:00 PM
