Alerting

How to configure alert based on other timezones?

Contributor

Hi,
I have data coming in with event timestamps configured in CST time zone.

But I have one requirement to schedule alert based on London time every day. Basically, the difference between London and CST times are 5 or 6 hours based on time of the year. so, I cannot give constant Cron-Schedule for scheduling the alert by converting London time to CST time.
May I know if there is an approach to handle this scenario?

Create a local Splunk user called TZ_London, login as that user and set his Time zone so that Splunk knows how to interpret Timepicker values like Today and Yesterday, etc. by clicking TZ_London -> Settings -> Time zone. Then clone the report so that TZ_London owns it and it runs as him with his Time zone setting. This way Splunk handles Daylight Savings and everything else.
