C3 IoT Server Time

#1

What is the server time on C3 Iot servers?

A DateTime created in a javascript function for a type was persisted in the correct UTC time, not local time, implying that the server time is UTC +0. Is that correct and will that always be the case?

Yes, C3 clusters are configured to operate at UTC. It is a distributed system, so the physical locations of the machines in one cluster could span multiple timezones, but “local” time is always UTC.

Yes by default, DateTime.now() will return you time in UTC on the server side.

If you need time in a different zone you can use apis on TimeZone.c3typ. See TimeZone.convert
