DST Adjustments

  • 1.  DST Adjustments

    Posted 09-24-2020 03:17
    Hi Blue Prism Community!

    Just wondering if someone here has some solution on handling DST adjustments in scheduled processes. We are using Blue Prism Scheduler on this and running based on EU and US timezone.

    Additional Details: App Server and RRs are all in UTC timezone.

    Thanks,
    Jin

    Hi Jim,

    Schedule times are saved based on the local time-zone settings of the machine used to configure the schedule. Schedules are executed by the server based on the server's local time. Windows will automatically adjust for DST by default, but you may want to confirm that in the Date & time settings.

    Here are some resources that you may find helpful:

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for your prompt response!

    It says in the documentation that the:

    Schedule start times are saved based on the local time-zone settings of the device used to configure the schedule.
    Schedules are executed by the server based on the server's local time.

    If we are going to configure the schedules using the Interactive Clients on EU and US time zones, will the execution time be adjusted come DST?  Even if our App Server and RRs are all in UTC time zone? Or should we also adjust our App Server to support DST?

    Thanks,
    Jin
