Office 365 Outlook - Update Event V2 does not accept Dates retrieved in Get Event V2 - UTC not valid

A simple flow

1 - Get Event V2

2 - Update Event V2 using the data obtained in Get Event V2

 

 

fails with 

Time zone 'UTC' is not valid.

clientRequestId: 6724eaf0-31c8-4178-8231-2c1ee9f03c25

 

In my view this is a bug as the Update Event V2 Input should allow the format of the output of Get Event V2

 

Update_Event_V2_Struggle_1_12-7-2017 11-10-14 AM.jpgThis is the flowUpdate_Event_V2_Struggle_5_12-7-2017 11-10-14 AM.jpgDetails of the last step

Update_Event_V2_Struggle_2_12-7-2017 11-10-14 AM.jpgHere the Get Event V2 DataUpdate_Event_V2_Struggle_3_12-7-2017 11-10-14 AM.jpgInput in run historyUpdate_Event_V2_Struggle_4_12-7-2017 11-10-14 AM.jpgError received

especially as in create event V2 UTC is an allowed timezone

Update_Event_V2_Struggle_7_12-7-2017 11-10-14 AM.jpgCreate Event V2 allows UTC

 

 

PS: 

the flow intends to add an additional particpant to an existing Outlook Event

Hi @ErichH,

 

Which time zone does your Outlook event set?

Further, which Time zone is your local time zone?

 

The error message told that there is something wrong with value of Time zone field of “Update event (V2)” action.

I have made a test on my side and don’t have the issue that you mentioned. My flow’s configuration as below:10.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:11.JPG

 

I have reproduced the issue on my side when I set Time zone property of Outlook event to (UTC) Coordinated Universal Time, it seems that (UTC) Coordinated Universal Time is not supported in “Update event (V2)” action:12.JPG

 

According to the screenshot that you provided (Here the Get Event V2 Data), you have set Time zone of Outlook event to (UTC) Coordinated Universal Time, please consider take a try to change Time zone property of Outlook event to other Time zone or your local Time zone and check if the issue is solved.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Kris yes indeed, when i chose Casablanca or London it works.

Question is why allow utc in create event, but not in update event.

this is inconsistent and confusing. It took me days to figure out what is going on.

this can be avoided.

 

thanks for considering to fix this.

@v-xida-msft

 

Chris,

I am asked whether your reply is a solution.

 

It is a great hint for a work around how to circumvent the issue, but NOT a SOLUTION for the underlying inconsistency between Create_Event and Update_Event behavior in respect to UTC.

I have the exact same issue, that an event can be created using UTC time zone, but the update of the event using Update Event V2 does not accept UTC.

 

Please fix the issue and get update to be able to use UTC time zone!

Kind regards, John
