Different timezone for script monitor cron expression

TokyoQ

I can see that general cron jobs can support running in a particular timezone through the CRON_TZ parameter.

Is this supported in Splunk inputs..conf > interval?

Note I'm not concerned with changing the timezone of the events that get forwarded. Just looking to schedule the script triggering based on a cron in a particular timezone.

The cron schedule in inputs.conf will use the time zone that is set for the user account running Splunk Enterprise or UF. So you will need to create the schedule based on that TZ.
