My system log files are in GMT, as well as the Splunk forwarder and Splunk server. They are all in GMT (or UTC)
However, my Splunk users are in PST time zone. So, I would like the splunk searches, reports and alerts to display the charts and tables in PST time. How can I accomplish that?
Yes, I did this and nothing changes.
TZ = Etc./UTC
My problem is not that logs are in different timezone than the Splunk server. My logs and Splunk server are in the same time zone. But my Splunk users are in PST.
Ah, sorry, I misunderstood. You can set each user's time zone in Manager, so they can see events in their own time zone. Manager > Access controls > Users.
We have hundreds of users imported from LDAP. Is there any way to make a mass tiemzone edit for all users? They are all set to "Default System TimeZone" --- may be I can change the default to PST? How do I do that? Thank you!
I see...I don't think there is any way to do a multiple user update like this within Splunk. You would have to write a script to update the tz setting in each user file, which is in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/users/
