Time Settings


Each user can have their own preferred time settings for ESET PROTECT Web Console. User-specific time settings are applied to each user regardless of where they access ESET PROTECT Web Console.

All information is stored internally in ESET PROTECT using the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) standard. UTC time is automatically converted to the time zone used by ESET PROTECT Web Console (taking daylight saving into account). ESET PROTECT Web Console displays the local time of the system where ESET PROTECT Web Console is running (not the internal UTC time). You can override this setting to set the time shown in ESET PROTECT Web Console manually.

If you want to override the default Use Browser Local Time setting, you can choose the Select manually option, then specify the console time zone manually and decide whether to use daylight saving time or not.



In some cases, the option to use a different time zone will be made available. When configuring a trigger, ESET PROTECT Web Console time zone is used by default. Alternatively, you can select the check box Use Target Local Time to use local time zone of the target device instead of ESET PROTECT Console time zone for the trigger.


Click Save Time Settings to confirm your changes.
