Adding additional Time zones

Hi,

 

I'd like to add additional timezones into the exising Base time zone lookup, (namely time zones used in Australia external territories, such as UTC+10:30 for Lord Howe Island) but it appears that there isn't an option to add an additional New record to that lookup or modify any of the values shown

How do I add/modify the timezones in my bpm online instance?

 

Yours Sincerely,

Dear Lachlan,

Lookup "Time zones" is a system lookup that is locked for editing because those values are needed for login in the system. After adding new value user with this time zone will be unable to log into the system, so this is why it is locked. Our R&D team responsible for this functionality is already working on the implementing this functionality in the future releases. 

Best regards,
Angela

Hi Angela,

Do you have a firm estimate on exactly when that will be?  Also, why are all the Time Zones in BPM Online using the old GMT naming convention when UTC superseded it in 1967?  Considering the full TZ database is provided freely by IANA (https://www.iana.org/time-zones), I find it puzzling that this was not already implemented within your application prior to it's worldwide release?

Yours Sincerely,

Lachlan Devantier,

Those values were taken from Windows timezone lookup and remained in this format. This format does not create any issues with integrations because API can receive such dates while working with .Net Framework.

As for now there is no ETA for this implementation. I will forward your post to the team in order to increase the importance of this functionality.

Best regards,
Angela

Hi Angela,

Then what version of Windows are you using in your infrastructure for BPM'Online?  Windows 2008?  The latest docs for Windows 10/Windows server clearly show the Time Zone display names using the UTC prefix instead of GMT), (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/d…) and I can confirm my copy of Windows 10 Pro certainly knows about the UTC+10:30 Time zone for Lord Howe Island.

Yours Sincerely,

Lachlan Devantier,

Those values were taken from it once and did not change afterwards. 

Best regards,
Angela
