Inclusion of Time Zone in Open PDC Daily reports

May 26, 2015 at 5:06 AM
Open PDC reporting feature generates reports for a day and statistics for last five days, unable to comprehend that, whether these reports are according to UTC time, or Local time ?
For our case we are in UTC + 5:30 time zone , whether daily generated daily reports are for local time day wise ??

Hi rajkumara,

The data in the reports is based on the time recorded in the historian which should be UTC. There is a bit of confusion in the openPDC Manager, however. When generating a report via that page, the openPDC service validates the date entered to make sure it is not a current or future date before attempting to generate a report. The service, however, uses local time for its validation rather than UTC. We've identified this as an issue and are in the process of releasing a fix. The same goes for the time entered for automatic reporting, which is currently using the openPDC service's local time and will be using UTC in the future.
