Flashtimeline renders events at wrong time for users in different timezones

We have users that are in another timezone (30 minutes off the servers) and events in their flashtimeline are appearing in local time instead of the real time. So events that occur at 9am are rendered in the flashtimechart as occuring at 8:30am. This does not align with the timerange or the result list.

Hmmm maybe I should check the latest releases before posting 😄

There are at least two timezone fixes, one of which seems to be the precise fix.

  • Server time zone is not being properly applied to flash charts. (SPL-30950)
  • If client and server are in different timezones, drill-downs create the wrong epochtime timerange. (SPL-31220)

Well, to be fair, the bug with the time zone in the flash charts has been there since 4.0 came out and the fix was released yesterday.
