Re: datetime timezone wrong

I am also confused about the timezone.

Need clarification what is the timezone marketo is considering for rest APIs.

Re: datetime timezone wrong

Are you really sending just "019", not "2019"?

Times are stored in UTC (Z). If you mean to pass UTC in your API call, include "Z", not "+00:00".

Re: datetime timezone wrong

Where are you checking the field after writing it?

Are you reading it from the API (which should be in Z, exactly as written)?

Or are you talking about the token value in Velocity, which is stringified in CST for all instances but can be easily converted?

Re: datetime timezone wrong

We need to be very precise here. If you read the value using the API then surely you are seeing exactly what you put in, and that's "the value" (since everything else is a displayed value). Pls confirm that first, then we can continue.
