Creating a TimePeriod range fails deployment validation with the following startup log:

Similar error occurs with the 00:00-24:00 time period.
Also I would expect the following range to be valid:
[2023-03-19 09:56:18 -0600] critical/config: Error: Validation failed for object ‘always’ of type ‘TimePeriod’; Attribute ‘ranges’: Invalid time range definition ’ 00:01-23:59’: Can’t convert ’ 00’ to an integer. Location: in [stage]/zones.d/director-global/timeperiods.conf: 4:5-6:5

Icinga has a great compatibility between versions, but have a look at this:
icinga2 2.10.2 (2018-11-14)
icingaweb 2.6.2 (2018-11-21)
director 1.10.2 (2022-11-03)

but it’s the space before the range :slight_smile:
