Configuring the time zone

You can change the default UTC time zone to a different time zone such as AEST, SGT or CST. The Operation, Business, and COE dashboards display the time based on the time zone that you set.


Install Version or Version .
When you install Version or Version Control Room using Express Mode, some features of Bot Insight might not work as expected if you do not have the below hardware requirements. Ensure that you have the following requirements:
  • 8 core Intel Xeon Processor
  • 32 GB RAM
  • 500 GB Storage
  • 1 GbE Network
Note: The time zone changes are not applicable to the Audit dashboard. Also, if you have installed Version the changes are not supported for the Oracle database.

When you upgrade Control Room Version or Version patch to any of the base versions such as Version 11.3.4 or Version 11.3.5 , the dashboards will display the time zone in UTC format only. To set the time zone, do as follow.


  1. Go to the Control Room installation path.
    For example, C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Enterprise\zoomdata\conf
  2. From the list of files in the config folder, open the file with an XML editor such as Notepad++.
  3. Define the timezone.change.required property in the file.
    For example, timezone.change.required=false
    The default value is false and the time zone is disabled.
  4. Change the value to true to enable you to change the time zone.
    For example, to set the time zone in Indian Standard Time (IST), use the following settings:
    oldTimeZone= +00:00
    timeZoneId= Asia/Kolkata
    timeZoneLabel= IST (UTC+05:30)
    • oldTimeZone is the existing time difference from Greenwich Mean Time or GMT (default is set to +00:00).
    • timeZoneId is the unique ID for the region and city.
    • timeZoneLabel is the existing or selected country time zone code.
    For more information on how to configure the timeZoneId and timeZoneLabel, see this article:

    How to configure time zone in Bot Insight (A-People login required)

  5. Save the file.
  6. Restart the Bot Insight service.
    If you want to modify the time zone or set it back to the default value, repeat Step 1 through Step 6.
    For example, if you want to modify the time zone from IST to Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST):
    Old setting:
    oldTimeZone= +00:00
    timeZoneId= Asia/Kolkata 
    timeZoneLabel= IST (UTC+05:30)
    Modified settings:
    oldTimeZone= +05:30
    timeZoneId= Australia/Sydney
    timeZoneLabel= AEST (UTC+10:30)
