Date display formatting

As explained in the CAST Engineering Dashboard - CED in Using the CAST Engineering Dashboard, the date display format in the CAST Engineering Dashboard is determined by the language chosen for each user (English, French, Italian and German):

Language

Date display format

English

MM-dd-yyyy (US formatting)

French

dd/MM/yyyy

Italian

dd/MM/yyyy

German

dd.MM.yyyy

If you would prefer a different date format then you can modify this manually by running an SQL query to update the CAST Analysis Service.

Note that the instructions provided below specifically change the date display format for users using the English language. You can adapt the instructions and query if you want to modify the date display format for users using other languages.

Run an SQL query against the CAST Dashboard Service database

To change the date display format, run the following query against the CAST Dashboard Service database:

UPDATE VIEWER_PARAMETERS
SET VALUE = 'dd/MM/yyyy'
WHERE ID = 'DATE_PATTERN'
AND COMPONENT_ID = 'ENGLISH'

Then restart your application server so that the changes to take affect.

Re-installing or updating the CAST Dashboard Service will cause these changes to be lost. Re-run the query above to re-instate the changes.
