Specify timezone

(Krishna) #1

Hi, I'm using Kibana Dev tools console to enter some data into an index. When I enter a time it stores in elasticsearch as UTC but Kibana displays it in the local time zone (which in my case is Amsterdam time).
Is there any way to specify timezone through Dev tools console?

Do you want to set the timezone of the dates you're creating or do you just want to alter the timezone being displayed in Kibana?

If the former, you just need to specify the date in the correct format, including the timezone.

If the latter, you can change the timezone Kibana displays in the Advanced Settings under the Management app. The setting is called dateFormat:tz

Hey Bargs, this answers my question. I wanted to do the former. Thank you.
