Rule machine - unparseable date

@bravenel I was playing around with variables and variable math. Deleted the variable and the rule. Now when I click Rule Machine I get this error.

Is there an easy fix? Should I restore the data base?

I stopped being a 'fraidy-cat and restored last nights back-up. I'm still getting that error.

If you had a time variable with a connector, you can repair the connector. Please post the App Status page for Rule Machine.

Also, you might try restoring an older copy of the database, to before when the corruption happened.

We will have a hot fix release out that will correct this problem.

The hot fix release is available now, and it should resolve this problem for you.

That fixed my issue with RM. My wife would like to submit a list of my other issues to see if your abilities are as miraculous as I just joyfully announced to my family. :rofl:

Sorry to revive an old thread - this was the closest to the issue I’m seeing. I upgraded my hub to yesterday and I’m now getting this unparsable date error.

I’m not sure how to proceed. Thanks!

First thing to try would be to upgrade to .113 IIRC there may be a fix in it for this. If that doesn’t work try entering the parent app and clicking done.

What version of Rule is this? And as suggested, please be sure you are on the latest release.

Thank you - I see that there is a new version available now. I just updated to it - but still have the same problem.

It is a rule 4.1.

I’m not sure what you mean “entering the parent app”. Enter Rule Machine Legacy? I tried that, clicked done, but it didn’t help.

I’d be happy to rewrite this as a new rule (if it’s the legacy rule set causing this) - but I don’t have the old code and I did this long ago and don’t remember what I did. Is there a way to see the code? I have plenty of backup files.

Just updated to the current version ( and my issue is gone! Thanks!

I'm running and seem to be getting this same unparsable date error when setting up a rule with just times either through Basic Rules or Rules Machine. Has this issue started again in the latest version or is there something else I need to try here?
