Each tenant in Fineract has its timezone configured in the `tenants` table under the `fineractplatform-tenants` schema and the application should consider the same while carrying out any date/time related operations. This does not seem to be done consistently in the application and intermittent errors can be seen when the Application (tomcat) and database servers (MySQL) are run on systems with different timezones than that of the tenant.
Ex: Set the System timezone to "PDT". The default demo tenant is set to "Asia/Kolkata" and integration tests run on the same would fail intermittently.
Fixing the same would involve
- Ensuring that all dates created in the API / service layers are done in a tenant sensitive fashion by utilizing the methods present in the class org.apache.fineract.infrastructure.core.service.DateUtils.
- Ensure database operations do not use MySQL date functions. Ex:
org.apache.fineract.portfolio.savings.service.SavingsAccountChargeReadPlatformServiceImpl would cause issues with Timezones. We should be using something along the lines of
