All Dynatrace Managed cluster nodes OS timezone is CST time zone. Is it possible to Change the time zone to CST as default automatically while creating maintenance window ? currently the default is UTC.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please let us know if the following instructions help: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/maintenance-window-define
I'll put the relevant step in italics:
To define a maintenance window
yes. we follow the same. when we open maintenance window page , the timezone is selected to UTC By default. But we want to point to CST default when the maintenance page opens as all cluster managed nodes OS timezone is CST timezone.
You can choose CST6CDT (Central Time) - this is the same time as CST itself. (This is a bit confusing, but he verified it on the Internet;))
we don't want to change time zone to CST manually each time when we create maintenance window . Is there any way to set CST time zone as default automatically as cluster nodes are running in CST time zone?
There is no such option in the GUI. On the other hand, you can set up Maintenance Window via API and there you can choose any time zone you want in the timezoneId parameter.
Hi @radek_jasinski ,
Yes, we can use API . But I am wondering why it is taking default value as UTC time zone(in Maintenance window) even though application and Managed cluster nodes are running in CST time zone. it will be useful if UI is taking time zone based on cluster nodes time zone in Maintenance window page.
There is no such possibility now. You can write in Product Ideas with this idea and suggest the benefits of such a change:)
Hi @sudhakara_katak, you can raise a product idea or see if there's one already in our Product Ideas sub-forum 😉
