By default (based on Kubernetes), the timezone in every container of ICP is UTC.
It does not take the custom timezone of the user's servers which leads to confusions, e.g. when checking and comparing log files. ICP cannot be used as expected.
There is a workaround to mount the local timezone into the container but that would need to be done for every container and needs a lot of manual effort.
ICP should provide a way to define the custom timezone which then should be used in all containers.
Maybe via the config.yaml file.
Real Scenario + Problem Statement
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All customers would benefit from this as the usability of ICP is improved and you do not get confused by different times compared between your host and ICP.|
Why is it useful?
|Market Evidence - # of customers in next 12 months|
|Avg Annual Contract Value Per Customer|
|Secondary Persona (multi-select)|
How should it work?
|Geo Availability for this IDEA|
