I'm working with JWT where I need to deal with time. But there's some issue with the timezone. Can you tell me what timezone does outsystems follow on default.

Hi Samuel,

The Platform uses whatever time zone the server it runs on has. I think that most (all?) PaaS servers are using UTC, and if you have an on-premise server it'll probably run in your local time zone.

Hi Killian,

Sorry for replying on old post. 

We have our app on outsystems cloud and curDateTime is retunrning UTC date time. 

Just want to know even if outsystems has servers on multiple locations, curDateTime will always returns UTC time.

Hi Abdul, yes, it's by design. All the Outsystems servers in the cloud are configured to UTC.

Take a look at this article for more information: https://success.outsystems.com/Support/Enterprise_Customers/Maintenance_and_Operations/OutSystems_Cloud_and_time_zones


Thank you João. It resolved my query.
