Time Zone Conversion for Moscow (Russia) is Incorrect. GMT to Moscow is Four Hours, OTM is Using Three Hours. (Doc ID 1533816.1)

Last updated on MAY 06, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version 6.2.8 to 6.3.2 [Release 6.2 to 6.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On OTM 6.2.8 OTM is getting the time difference for Moscow wrong.

OTM is using a 3 hour difference from GMT to Moscow time when it should be using a 4 hour difference.

Expect OTM to carry out the correct time conversion.

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

1 - Log onto an OTM 6.2 system.

2 - Click on the Time Zones link in the 'Ask' section of OTM.

3 - Enter the following:

Date: 25/02/2013
Time: 07:30 AM
Time Zone: Moscow Standard Time (Eurpoe/Moscow).

To :
Select Country: UNITED KINGDOM

4 - The result is:

04:30 Europe/London.

This is incorrect, London is currently using GMT, which is 4 hours behind Moscow, not 3. When the UK moves to BST (British Summer Time) the time difference will then be 3 hours.
