Icalendar notification fails when is created with mapping based on variables instead of table fields.
Steps to Reproduce
In an affected instance:
- Go to Service Catalog > Maintain Items.
- Pick up 'Apple Ipad 3' ( for example).
- Create 3 new variables for it:
- v_dtstart of type date/time.
- v_dtend of type date/time.
- v_location of type Single Line Text.
- In the navigation filter, enter sys_impex_map.list.
- Create a new mapping for the date fields.
- Name it 'icalendar.sc_req_item'
- Set the type to calendar.
- Once created the mapping, click on it to add 3 new field maps based on variables (choose 'Mapping to a variable name'), as follows:
- Mapped field name: External Name
- v_dtstart: dtstart
- v_dtend: dtend
- v_location: location
- Save the changes
- Create a new email template based on sc_req_item table. Name it ipad_template. In the Text section of the template add the following:
