[E2013][EWS] Startdate of recurring event is one day off? RRS feed

  • Question

  • First code block below creates a recurring event, recurring every day, start date 3. May 2014
    Second code block: response OK
    Third code block: ask for first occurrence with that ID (Exchange starts counting at 1, not 0)
    Fourth block: response: 1st occurrence is on 4. May ?????

    What is happening here (and how to fix)?

    Create event:

    This is done with SOAPUI talking against Exchange 2013 *or* Exchange 2010

    Outlook confirms the start at 4. May.

    Creating with a NoEndRecurrence or EndDateRecurrence also fails:

        <typ:NoEndRecurrence>
          <typ:StartDate>2014-05-03Z</typ:StartDate>
        </typ:NoEndRecurrence>
    
        <typ:EndDateRecurrence>
          <typ:StartDate>2014-05-03Z</typ:StartDate>
          <typ:EndDate>2014-06-03Z</typ:EndDate>
        </typ:EndDateRecurrence>

  • Ouch, somebody correctly questioned my date specs:

    I have to specify my own time zone in the recurrence info:

    2014-05-03+01:00
