Cronjob schedule different timezone than default system time for savedsearches

New Member

I ran a |REST search to export the list of savedsearches along with their cronjob schedules.  The cronjob scheduled are not showing the time in UTC time.

ex | REST output for a search shows cronjob of 10 14 * * *,  but when I look at the REPORT tab on the SHC and see the list of saved searches, the "Next Scheduled Time" column shows 2024-04-07 18:10:00 UTC

My SHC and deployers splunk servers are both set to UTC as the default system time.  On the SHC UI, when I log in, my preferences are also set to view data in "default system time".  I am physically located in an Eastern Time Zone.

I am trying to see how to fix this so the |REST output of saved searches and their cronjob schedule is in UTC.

Try changing your user preferences to show times explicitly in UTC.  If the cron time changes to "10 18 * * *" then the system timestamp is Americas/New_York rather than UTC.
