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 sitecore.config file.

Server Time Zone

The Server Time Zone setting in the sitecore.config file specifies the server time zone that the server uses to convert UTC time to local time, for example, GMT Standard Time. This setting affects Experience Analytics.

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.
