User Permissions - Enforce Timezone

Path Finder

To avoid any miscommunication between users, I would like to enforce the use of a specific timezone for all users. I was thinking I could accomplish this by removing a user's right to change their timezone and set the timezone manually at account creation, however there doesn't appear to be an privilege setting for that.

Has anyone else tried to accomplish something similar? Any suggestions?

Hi w531t4,

My suggestion would be to check the user's user-prefs.conf and set the correct TZ in there; see this answer https://answers.splunk.com/answers/126350/change-multiple-users-timezone.html for a CLI which does it.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
