Server logging

how can we change the time zone to log the enteries?

Currently server log has the different time zone and I am trying to change the time zone to different one.

Is there any extended properties we need to use to set the different time zone?

Try from Settings > Logging > View Server Logger Details

I looked at the same but there was option to change the date/time format but I did not find a way to change the time zone.

I am fine with the format but only the time zone needs to be changed.

What is the Log Timestamp Format?

Refer BIS for more information - Date Folder. Reply back if you still have issues.

our system logs are stored in the format like this [104648]2015-02-26 09:32:18 EST

Date and time format is fine, I can go ahead and change in IS Admin Settings --> log , but there I only have ability to change the date format but not the time zone.

instead of EST Time zone, I want to change to CST time zone.


Share the Log Timestamp Format from your IS page.

Service log time format I have in IS is as below , can we mention the timezone anywhere here?

Format: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss z

Usually the setting depends on your system date time format what you have set.

See if this works: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss ‘CST’

Let me check this and get back to you.

Mahesh, thanks for your reply but this did not work. May be we need to do some changes in JVM , before starting the IS ?

Changing the format to “yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss ‘CST’ '” updated the heading only but not the log entries.

I think I got it. May be it is taking the server’s default time zone…

Yes that is what even I guessed. What changes did you do?

Hi Sam ,

You can use the java Time zone updater to update the time zone of the JVM on which IS is running.


Please check the below property and let me know if it is useful
