Info: Storing time and presenting the Timestamp to the user

Applies To:

All Director Versions

  • The MSSQL or Oracle database stores its times in GMT or Epoch.

User Interfaces

  • WebAdmin gets times from the database and translates them to the localized time of the server hosting the UI ( The IIS server ).
  • Workflow tickets in the workflow tree in Web Admin are localized to the user’s browser time zone (controlled by operating system).
  • Aperture localizes to the user’s browser’s time zone.
