RSS connector: Flow can't interpret time zone offsets?

Hi, I'm getting this error when trying to consume an RSS feed. It's a sample RSS feed, so I can't link it. Most of my feeds come in with "+0000" at the end of the pubDate, but I have 1 that comes with "-0400". This RSS fails in Flow parses fine in https://codebeautify.org/rssviewer

 

Failed to read requested Feed information. Details: Error in line 51 position 54. An error was encountered when parsing a DateTime value in the XML.
clientRequestId: 1a4c560e-673b-4cd4-9ea0-c57da219df66

 

Flow doesn't like? <pubDate>Thu, 12 Sep 2019 15:55:31 -0400</pubDate>

Flow works with this <pubDate>Mon, 09 Sep 2019 13:00:00 +0000</pubDate>

I can't provide the RSS feed. But the vendor has modified the feed on their end so that it works with Flow now.

Hi @jhuynh1

 

Could you please share your Flow configuration?

Currently, Flow can only convert time zone date format by the Convert time zone, it not support parse date for XML formate.Annotation 2019-09-13 160423.png

Hi, see below. So I have a SharePoint Online List that has a list of RSS sources. This loops through the list. They're all fine, except a new source that has the different date format. RSS parsers can read it fine, so I want to know how to get the process for Microsoft to read this date (or if there's an alternate process)?
