Different date format when opening Analysis in Web Player with Scheduled Updates enabled vs opening Analysis without Scheduled Updates enabled.
An Analysis opens up with correct date format in Web Player without Scheduled Updates enabled, for example with date format mm.dd.yyyy hh:mm:ss. Then when opening the same Analysis from Web Player with Scheduled Updates enabled it shows the wrong date format, for example m/d/yyyy h:m:s.
This has to do with the locale for the machine that hosts the Web Player.
A users will use the first correct locale sent by the browser in the accept header (usually the first selected language in the browser).
This locale will be used for displaying and parsing data.
For scheduled updates, that executes as network service by default, the locale will be the system locale for the machine that hosts the Web Player.
If the reading of the data by scheduled updates is depending on the locale, you must make sure that the system locale of the server is set to that locale.
