Splunk DB Connect + McAfee Add-on: How to set correct timezone?

New Member

Hello all,

We are connecting to our McAfee database using the McAfee Add-on 2.2.1 and DBConnect 3.3.1.

The search reads perfectly; however, the McAfee database timestamps are in UTC time. On the database connection, we have defined our timezone as Canada/Eastern: -04:00.

However, the timestamps are still shown in UTC time. I was expecting the timestamps to be converted by DB Connect to the actual timezone where they're in. Is there any way to do that?

Btw I've tried the solutions in answer 612262 and 620601 to no avail:

How can I override the timezone for Splunk DBX 3.1?:

Thanks all,
