Issue/Introduction

Question:

How do you configure the Workstation to display time in UTC?

 

Answer:

For Workstation thick client: (do not require configuration changes on the client side)

a.) open IntroscopeWorkstation.lax, add "-Duser.timezone=UTC" to lax.nl.java.option.additional.

b.) restart Workstation.

 

For Workstation Webstart:

location of workstation.jsp:

<Introscope_home>\product\enterprisemanager\plugins\com.wily.introscope.workstation.webstart_<version>\WebContent\jnlp\workstation.jsp

 

Timezone display in Webstart Workstation

 

You can specify the timezone to display on the Webstart workstation by updating the workstation.jsp file.

Follow these steps:

1. Stop the Enterprise Manager.

2. Open the workstation.jsp file. By default, workstation.jsp has the following argument:

            <argument><%=emDefaults.kTimeZoneStrings[0]%></argument>

            <argument><%="timezone"%></argument>

3. To set a timezone, enter a timezone ID that you want to display in the Workstation, in place of the string "timezone" in the above argument. 

For example :

<argument><%=emDefaults.kTimeZoneStrings[0]%></argument>

<argument><%="UTC"%></argument>

Note: If you enter an invalid timezone ID, then the time displays in GMT.

4. Save the changes.

5. Start EM and once the EM is up, login to the Workstation Webstart.
