i have a search head in eastern time and user is configured in Asia time.
so if i configure a report/alert in which time the reports wil be executed. whether user time or search head time.
so if user scheduling a cron on his timezone to run at 6PM.. what time zone the report will run whether search head time or user timezone
It would be user timezone.
Because, while search displaying the results user time will be considered. In the same way for scheduled alerts also user time will be considered.
User time zone is just to present you results in your time zone but the searches will be still run on the server time. Please see below post more information!
so if server is Eastern time and user in asia time. if user considering to get last 4 hours data of user time.. what time zone data we will user get?
Eastern standard time data with replaced in user time zone or user time with eastern standard time?
Here is an example :
Time shown in _time : 7/26/18 5:44:23.356 AM
Time of events : 127.0.0.1 - admin [26/Jul/2018:21:44:23.356 +0800]
