The fucntion addDays is not giving proper results



addDays function does not work as expected. The output value is 2016/10/05 instead of 2016/10/06 when using the function  @(Pega-RULES:BusinessCalendar).addDays("20161005T000000.000 GMT",.TestInt,true,"USDefault").

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Use the function in data transform.
  2. Check the output of @(Pega-RULES:BusinessCalendar).addDays("20161005T000000.000 GMT",.TestInt,true,"USDefault") function.

Root Cause

User is using USDefault calendar, hence the input date will be converted to USDefault timezone ie previous day in USDefault. It adds one day to it, which will be same day in GMT.


Use AddTime function @(Pega-Rules:BusinessCalendar).addTime(Inputdate,No of days, Hours, mins,Secs, UseBusinessCalendar,Calendar name).
