Time Zones Settings

Initially, all Identity Security Cloud tenants are set to the time zone CST/CDT. The tenant's time zone can be updated using the API. This is used as the default time zone setting for some timestamped features.


  • Users configuring schedules should be aware that when they apply a schedule to a task, that task might use the tenant's time zone rather than the time zone used by their browsers.
  • If a task is scheduled for a time zone that uses daylight savings time, the schedule will be automatically updated during the associated time change. For example, if a scheduled search takes place at 8 AM EST, the time will be automatically updated to 8 AM EDT during daylight savings time. This excludes activity associated with a virtual appliance cluster.

Refer to the table for more information on scheduled features and features with a timestamp, and the time zones they use.
