Description

The javascript nonsense dating back to Windows 9x/IE5 days actually shows local time on the client, severely confusing users.

This appears to still be pulling local time in 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1.
Was this fix part of 2.3.4 or am I misreading something?

#10 Updated by Jim Pingle 4 months ago

The fix was in 2.3.4 and any release after that.

It is not pulling local time. I just confirmed it by loading the same dashboard with NTP widget on two systems, one of which has a clock running 3 minutes slow. The NTP widget displayed the correct time on both clients.

Maybe this is something different then. All times are set Etc/UTC as per default. Is there a different place I should report this?

Start a new bug report for that. It may be using the local time zone incorrectly but it is not using the local clock which is what this ticket was about.
