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 @Anonymous, 

 

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)?
