Managing time zones

HCL Workload Automation supports different time zones. If you enable time zones you can manage your workload across a multiple time zone environment.

Both the 3-character and the long time zone names are supported, but it is suggested that you use the long names if they exist. If you are scheduling in MST or EST time zones, you are required to use the long names, for example "America/New_York” for EST. This is because those time zones no longer observed daylight savings time (DST) rules and the product incorrectly schedules jobs or job streams during the DST time frame with one hour offset for time dependencies.

The 3-character notation is supported for compatibility with earlier versions of HCL Workload Automation.

The variable length notation format is area/city, for example Europe/Paris as equivalent to ECT (European Central Time).
