    Changing the Date Format in E–mail Notifications

    The WFM Daemon service, which uses the operating system account locale to provide the date format, dictates the format for WFM email notifications. By default, WFM Daemon is installed under the system account and therefore, it uses the system user (or default user) locale. You can change the date format in email notification sent by WFM Daemon by changing the locale settings for the system user account and set the language (country) to match the desired date format.

    If changing the system account locale is not an option (for example, if other services are using the locale settings), you can instruct WFM Daemon to override the service user account locale settings. See the procedure below.

    Purpose: To change the date format in email notifications by overriding the WFM Daemon service user account locale settings.

    Start of Procedure

    1. Verify the WFM Daemon service name. (By default, it is WFMDaemon.)
    2. Stop the WFM Daemon service.
    3. Open the Windows Registry Editor and navigate to the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun2.0\<WFM Daemon service name>\Parameters\Java
      Where: <WFM Daemon service name> is the name of the WFM Daemon service. For example, the default key path is:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun2.0\WFMDaemon\Parameters\Java
    4. Open the Option value and add the Java language, region, and country options using the following syntax (see Figure below):
    • -Duser.language=fr
    • -Duser.region=CA
    • -Duser.country=CA

  • Start the WFM Daemon process and check the email notifications date format.
  • End of Procedure
