Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules

At runtime date time control is ex
pecting input format of date but we are providing the datatime format. On removing the time there is no issue.

On further analysis it is observed that when we do select value the calendar that is used is pzCalendar of class Embed-Whenconditions which has the control of pzDataTimeCalendarLVSV which takes the format of only date.

Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior:

As Summary views are deprecated suggested the developer to use report definition.
