In BI report, a custom DATE field returned dates off by 1 day (Doc ID 2172797.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Sales Cloud Service - Version 11.1.11.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In Application Composer, a custom field is of Type "Date", but in BI, it is returned as a DATETIME, or TIMESTAMP value.

This is causing end user confusion because they are seeing the values returned converted to their timezone, which results in the date values being incorrect.

Is this expected behavior?
How can you show the correct Date values?
