-Learning Management System

Reproducing the Issue

1. Under System Admin > Connectors > select any connectors

2. The time zone to be used for date and time fields is displayed as a note under the ‘Apply Changes’ button.



Ensure this time zone is used for the ‘Date’ and ‘Time’ fields for which the Time zone is not passed in the Connector Input Files.

Why is it important?

This is the time zone we apply to the ‘Date’ and ‘Time’ fields that are fed via the Connector Input Files for which Timezone cannot be explicitly set.

Previously, the time zone used for Date and Time fields (for which the Time zone was not passed) was defaulted by the connector to a certain Database time zone (e.g. EST). As part of optimization database time zone is now being set to UTC time zone, so in order to avoid impact, we are taking into consideration the database time zone that was used before the change. The UI displays the time zone the connector will use for processing as confirmation.

Note: This is displayed only for systems where the Database timezone is changed.
