Hello,

I'm just wondering if the ValidFrom and ValidTo properties need to be adjusted to take time zone into account before being used or not.

In other words: are the ValidFrom and validTo properties purely in UTC time or have they been biaised already for the local time zone ?

The properties are in UTC and you need to convert local time to UTC before doing the comparison.


Sincerely yours
