Set default TimeZone

From @lucag and @wbilger:

There should also be a way to set the default Language and Date Format for each user, as well as the timezone.

It sounds like a good idea to take the timezone from the NS 

@webtop_team what we have to configure to achieve this automatically?

Yes @giacomo, you can use these:

INSERT INTO “core”.“settings” (“service_id”, “key”, “value”) VALUES (‘com.sonicle.webtop.core’, ‘default.i18n.languageTag’, {LANGUAGE_TAG});

where {LANGUAGE_TAG} must be one of the following: ‘en_EN’, ‘it_IT’, ‘es_ES’


INSERT INTO “core”.“settings” (“service_id”, “key”, “value”) VALUES (‘com.sonicle.webtop.core’, ‘default.i18n.timezone’, {TIMEZONE});

where {TIMEZONE} must be a valid Java timezone string (like ‘Europe/Rome’)


INSERT INTO “core”.“settings” (“service_id”, “key”, “value”) VALUES (‘com.sonicle.webtop.core’, ‘default.i18n.startDay’, {START_DAY});

where {START_DAY} must be one of the following: ‘0’ for Sunday, ‘1’ for Monday


INSERT INTO “core”.“settings” (“service_id”, “key”, “value”) VALUES (‘com.sonicle.webtop.core’, ‘default.i18n.format.date.short’, {DATE_FORMAT_SHORT});

where {DATE_FORMAT_SHORT} must be one of the following: ‘dd/MM/yyyy’, ‘dd-MM-yyyy’, ‘yyyy-MM-dd’, ‘MM/dd/yyyy’, ‘MM-dd-yyyy’, ‘MM.dd.yyyy’


INSERT INTO “core”.“settings” (“service_id”, “key”, “value”) VALUES (‘com.sonicle.webtop.core’, ‘default.i18n.format.date.long’, {DATE_FORMAT_LONG});

where {DATE_FORMAT_LONG} must be one of the following: ‘dd MMM yyyy’, ‘dd MMMM yyyy’, ‘MMM dd, yyyy’, ‘MMMM dd, yyyy’


INSERT INTO “core”.“settings” (“service_id”, “key”, “value”) VALUES (‘com.sonicle.webtop.core’, ‘default.i18n.format.time.short’, {TIME_FORMAT_SHORT});

where {TIME_FORMAT_SHORT} must be one of the following: ‘HH:mm’, ‘h:mm a’


INSERT INTO “core”.“settings” (“service_id”, “key”, “value”) VALUES (‘com.sonicle.webtop.core’, ‘default.i18n.format.time.long’, {TIME_FORMAT_LONG});

where {TIME_FORMAT_LONG} must be one of the following: ‘HH:mm:ss’, ‘h:mm:ss a’

Where is the list of Java-supported time zones? How can I check if the system time zone is also a valid Java time zone?

All these options are usually grouped inside the locale concept:

  • LANGUAGE
  • START_DAY
  • DATE_FORMAT_LONG
  • DATE_FORMAT_SHORT
  • TIME_FORMAT_SHORT
  • TIME_FORMAT_LONG

Usually when setting the locale, the application should be able to set all formats accordingly.
IMHO WebTop should respect this convention but I don’t if such a feature exists in Java (see the PHP example http://php.net/manual/en/function.setlocale.php).

Honestly I don’t see any simple way to achieve this at rpm level.

For sure I can set the language, @matteo.albinola how can I retrieve the list of supported languages?
If there isn’t a way to get this list, I rather prefer leave WebTop configured with English default.

Are WebTop defaults already good for English people or defaults are targeted for Italians?

Unfortunately i’m not able to find a link that provides a list of valid timezone IDs for Java.

So i've generated this...

I think that Java can support it but we cannot completely automate this process due to date/time formats compatibility between Java and ExtJs.

At this time there is no link between language files in each service and platform supported languages, so we aren’t able to provide a list. Italian (it_IT) and english (en_EN) are the only languages supported for sure. I think we will improve this connection in future releases.

Default are tailored for italians so for now i suggest you to use those inserts to create a configuration set valid for english people.

If the NS timezone is used, what will happen to users that are in a different timezone than the NS is situated?
This would mean that timezone for WebTop should be on a per user basis.

It’s already configured per-users.

We should change only the default value. Right now, the default is Europe/Rome which is not good :smile:

As we say in Italy : “all roads lead to Rome” :smiley:

A new RPM is available in nethserver-testing.

New defaults are:

  • English locale
  • UTC timezone

List available locales: /etc/e-smith/events/actions/nethserver-webtop5-locale-tz
List available timezones: JAVA_HOME=/usr/share/webtop/ java ListTimeZones

More info at:
http://docs.nethserver.org/projects/nethserver-devel/en/v7/nethserver-webtop5.html
