When configuring PingIntelligence for APIs, you can set up ABS AI Engine in either local or UTC time zone by configuring the timezone parameter in /pingidentity/abs/config/abs.properties file. If the timezone parameter is left empty, ABS by default runs in the UTC time zone. Following is a snippet of abs.properties for timezone parameter.

# Set the timezone to utc or local. The default timezone is utc.

<truncated abs.properties...>

Make sure that ASE, ABS AI Engine, and PingIntelligence for APIs are all configured on the same time zone.

If ABS AI Engine is deployed in a cluster, make sure to configure the same time zone on each cluster node. If you have used automated deployment to deploy PingIntelligence, the automated deployment configures the same time zone on each ABS node. However, if you have used manual installation, then you need to manually configure the time zone on each ABS node. You can use the Admin REST API to check the current time zone setting of ABS AI Engine.

Change ABS AI Engine time zone

If you want to change the time zone in ABS AI Engine, complete the following steps:

  1. Stop ABS AI Engine
  2. Update the timezone parameter in abs.propeties file
  3. Start ABS AI Engine
