Working in Different Time Zones

Time stamps, for example, insert dates or modification dates, are stored in the One Identity Manager with the respective UTC. The object layer transforms this time data into the currently valid time zone data when an object is loaded. The user, therefore, sees all the values in local time. When an object is saved the current time zone data is transformed into UTC data.

Countries and time zones are linked to another in the One Identity Manager schema. This makes it easier to find out the time zones when web fronts such as Web Portal are in use. This has to be done at start up when all countries have to enabled that have an active web front.

Working hours are calculated for various function in One Identity Manager. For example, to determine working hours in the IT Shop or for determining reaction and solution times for calls in the Helpdesk Module.

In order to determined the correct working hours, ensure that a state in entered in the employee's master data. Weekends and public holidays are taken into account when calculating working hours. Public holiday are entered by state (county) in the One Identity Manager. You can add separate public holidays for states.

The settings of the following configuration parameters are also taken into when calculating working hours:

  • QBM\WorkingHours\IgnoreHoliday

    If this configuration parameter is set, public holidays are not included in the calculation of working hours.

  • QBM\WorkingHours\IgnoreWeekend

    If this configuration parameter is set, weekends are not included in the calculation of working hours.
