Unclear what time zone the log viewer is showing for log items

Shane Day (Chief Technology Officer) 13 years ago updated by anonymous 9 years ago 7

The log viewer isn't entirely clear what time zone the log items timestamps are being displayed in. This could be improved by informing the user of the time zone, and potentially allowing swapping between local/browser and UTC times.

Could a check box be added offering local/UTC switch?

Absolutely, you can get the current timezone offset in javascript, and offset the current time accordingly.

Previous comment would be the wrong way to do it, instead the switch should refresh the component from the server side with the corrected timezone.

Timezone is displayed, however the switching will still need to be handled.

Please check what timezone information is used to format the datetime. I seem to recall using a UI format, but I'm not sure if this is actually picked up in the service. Test to see if it actually uses the browser format. Following all that, please move this issue to v3.2 for adding the functionality of swapping between local and UTC.


Using time of the Web Server, consider passing in browser offset and apply to UTC time.

Will be addressed as part of the larger roadmapped item.
