    Tableau server timezone

    Bhavana Khairnar

      Hello Everyone,

       

      I have just started working as tableau server admin, I want to see my server follows which time zone? Also people who are aware that tableau server record all it's activities in prostgres backend. So there are multiple tables which are created by tableau, in almost every table there is created_at column.

      Now various users visit tableau server and user information gets stored in the postgres backend, now suppose this xyz user accessed some view, the created_at time which is getting save in postgres is it tableau server timezone time or user time zone, like user is visiting from EST time zone and tableau server is in UTC time zone, then which is getting recorded at the backend?

       

      This must be a very silly question, but I cannot find it out, please help.

       

      Thank you

      Bhavana
