Sitecore Experience Manager

Settings supporting UTC implementation

Abstract

The config file setting that support UTC.

There is one setting that supports date/time types:

  • The Server Time Zone setting in the web.config file.

Server Time Zone

The Server Time Zone setting in the web.config file specifies the server time zone that is used by the server to convert UTC time to local time, for example "GMT Standard Time".

The value must be a valid Time Zone ID in Microsoft .NET. For more information, see Microsoft Time Zone Index Values.

If the value is blank, Sitecore uses the operating system time zone.

      <!--  SERVER TIME ZONE
            This setting specifies the server time zone that is  used by the server to convert UTC time to local time, for example "GMT Standard Time".
            The value must be parsable to a valid Time Zone ID.                   See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg154758.aspx
            If blank, Sitecore uses the operating system time zone.
            Default value: "" (use the operating system time zone)
      -->
      <setting name="ServerTimeZone" value=""/>

Note

From Sitecore 9.0, the Analytics.Reports.DisplayDatesInUtc setting in the App_Config\Include\Sitecore.Analytics.config file has been deprecated. The setting specified if dates and times are displayed in UTC or the local server time zone in Experience Analytics reports.
