SQL Server BDC Hints and Tips: Changing Grafana/Kibana Display Time Zone
The Grafana and Kibana interfaces default to the local browser time zone on a SQL Server BDC cluster. Some of my machines are in the PST time zone and others the CST time zone and I find myself doing math calisthenics trying to line up metric and log information.
Currently the SQL Server BDC cluster does not allow you change the default from local browser time (being worked on by the team) but you can temporally adjust Grafana or Kibana. Here I highlighted how to adjust the time zone for Grafana and Kibana.
Click on the Dashboard Settings (gear icon, top right)
Change the time zone option
If you press the ‘Save’ button the following error appears
Instead use the ‘Go Back’ button which causes the current session to honor the selected time zone
Click on the Settings (gear icon, left)
Select Advanced Setting and Scroll to the time zone for data formatting
Press the ‘SAVE’ Button
