Tableau Server Status Notifications Display UTC Time

Issue

When viewing status or health email notifications from Tableau Server, the date and time are listed in UTC timezone instead of the local timezone configured for Tableau Server.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • "Send email alerts for server health issues" flag is on

Resolution

It is not possible to change the timezone for email status and health notifications.

Cause

By design, Tableau Server health alert messages always show the time of the event in the time zone it is installed in, and notes the time zone in the email.

Additional Information

Any email subscriptions and corresponding schedules set up through Tableau Server will use the specified time zone that the Server Administrator has set for Tableau Server.
