Problem with data format when trying to upadate item on Sharepoint list

Hello, 
I am trying send an http request to Sharepoint calendar to update event by using flow like this:

image.pngimage.png


This is a body:

 

{
"formValues": 
[

{"FieldName": "EventDate", "FieldValue": "5/10/2020 0:00 AM"},
{"FieldName": "EndDate", "FieldValue": "5/10/2020 0:00 AM"},
{"FieldName": "fAllDayEvent", "FieldValue":  "True"}
],
"bNewDocumentUpdate": true
}

 

This is a response:

 

{
  "d": {
    "ValidateUpdateListItem": {
      "__metadata": {
        "type": "Collection(SP.ListItemFormUpdateValue)"
      },
      "results": [
        {
          "ErrorMessage": "Enter a date and time like this: 2/23/2012 2:25 PM",
          "FieldName": "EventDate",
          "FieldValue": "5/10/2020 0:00 AM",
          "HasException": true,
          "ItemId": 34
        },
        {
          "ErrorMessage": "Enter a date and time like this: 2/23/2012 2:25 PM",
          "FieldName": "EndDate",
          "FieldValue": "5/10/2020 0:00 AM",
          "HasException": true,
          "ItemId": 34
        },
        {
          "ErrorMessage": null,
          "FieldName": "fAllDayEvent",
          "FieldValue": "True",
          "HasException": false,
          "ItemId": 34
        }
      ]
    }
  }
}

 

 

I was formatted datetime by using the formula:

formatDateTime( if(empty(triggerBody()?['XXX']),triggerBody()?['YYY'],triggerBody()?['ZZZ']),'M/d/yyyy H:mm tt')
Also I was trying insert there for example: 'M/d/yyyy H:m tt', 'MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm tt', but nothing is work, always the same exception. Does somebody have any ideas what can also I try ?

Hi @Alicja ,

 

If you want to create/update the event as an all-day event, EndDate needs to be yyyy-MM-ddT23:59:00.

I am using now formulas like below and it works for me:

{
"formValues": 
[

{"FieldName": "EventDate", "FieldValue": "@{formatDateTime(variables('StartDate'), 'yyyy-MM-dd 12:00:00')}"},
{"FieldName": "EndDate", "FieldValue": "@{formatDateTime(variables('EndDate'), 'yyyy-MM-dd 23:59:00')}"},
{"FieldName": "fAllDayEvent", "FieldValue":  "True"}
],
"bNewDocumentUpdate": true
}

 

Thank you for your help 😉

      },
