I recently started using REST and now trying it on SharePoint Designer Call HTTP web service. I’m trying to retrieve and send an email to the timekeeper with a list of staff that is out today. I followed the steps here and here. In SharePoint, I can easily filter the list using Start Date <= Today and End Date >= Today — but I’ve been having trouble with REST.
SharePoint List columns:
- Start Date (internal name: EventDate) – date/time type
- End Date (internal name: EndDate) – date/time type
In SharePoint Designer, I created a variable called “Today” which is being logged in history as 2017-12-13T08:00:00Z. I even set time to 0:0 but was still logged as 2017-12-13T08:00:00Z
Initial attempt at filter to ensure the rest of the workflow works:
[%Workflow Context:Current Site URL %]_api/web/lists/getbyTitle('AbsenceRequest')/items/?$ select=Absentee,EventDate,EndDate&$ filter=(Status eq 'Not Approved')
1st attempt on date filter and failed (all date filter attempts are using ISOformat for the variable):
[%Workflow Context:Current Site URL %]_api/web/lists/getbyTitle('AbsenceRequest')/items/?$ select=Absentee,EventDate,EndDate&$ filter=(EventDate le '[%Variable: Today%]') AND (EndDate ge '[%Variable: Today%]')
2nd attempt on date filter and failed:
[%Workflow Context:Current Site URL %]_api/web/lists/getbyTitle('AbsenceRequest')/items/?$ select=Absentee,EventDate,EndDate&$ filter=(EventDate le datetime '[%Variable: Today%]') AND (EndDate ge datetime '[%Variable: Today%]')
Is there a way to set the EventDate and EndDate time to 0:0 as well?
Ultimate goal is to set a timer job but first I need to figure out how to retrieve the items meeting the above condition.
I also posted similar question here but outside of SharePoint Designer.
