Description

Show After function results in incorrect filter, if the client timezone differs from the system timezone. When the system and session timezones are set to Europe/London, an extra hour is added to the filter.

Steps to Reproduce

 

  1. Log in a nydemo instance as administrator. 
  2. Update the property glide.sys.default.tz to the value Europe/London.
  3. Use the cog wheel on the top right hand side of the interface to set the time/date to Both.
  4. Ensure that the timezone in the cog wheel interface is also set to Europe/London.
  5. Navigate to a record on the incident table and make an update.
  6. Log out and login as the admin user.
  7. Navigate to the incident table, order the records by sys_updated, and find the record updated in step 5.
  8. Use the context menu Show After.

Notice that an extra hour is added to the filter and no record is shown.
