Hi,
I console.log but it shows UTC in the logs. How do I change the timezone to IST? The region is in B'lore but it still shows utc.

Hi there,

I’ve noticed a similar question here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-adjust-the-server-timezone-in-app-platform

The solution is to set the timezone with a TZ environment variable, for example:

TZ='Africa/Lagos'

Hope this helps!
Best,

I have just started using the Digital Ocean App platform to quickly deploy and test our Microservices. One thing that was quickly discovered by our test users was the 2-hour difference in terms of time indicated on some of the messages sent to the customer. We are using CAT / GMT(+2) but the servertime is 2 hours behind.

Hello @anilkuppa ,

Did you try using the TZ variable and did it help you?
