Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

During the processing of a data flow work item that contains an event strategy, the following error is displayed: PropertyValueInvalid. TIME cannot cast the value (some string instead of date) to Date.


This error occurs when all of the following conditions apply:

  • The Event timestamp property of the Real-Time Data shape is configured to use the event time instead of the system time.
  • The incoming event JSON record contains a string that does not match the Date format property that is configured for the event time.


  1. Perform one of the following actions to eliminate this error:

    • Configure the Date format property in the Real-Time Shape in the event strategy to match the format of the incoming event records.
    • Configure the data set that is the source of your events to insert the time in a format that matches the Date format property in the Real-Time Data shape in the event strategy.

      The default date format of Pega Platform is YYYYMMDD'T'HHmmss.SSS.

    Date format property in the Real-Time Data shape
