Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the Application and User Management workcenter.
  2. Select the Background Jobs view.
  3. Select any Background Job.
  4. Click on Reschedule.
  5. Set up a Recurrence at 8am daily.

During the Daysaving Time change, the run is executed at 7 am.


  • The time is saved always in UTC from the backend.
  • When you set up a time, the adjustment to your time zone is only in the display.
  • When your time zone changes (due to Daylight Saving), the schedule for your timezone is adjusted.


  • Currently there is no option to automatically adjust the difference in Daylight Saving.
  • You can manually reschedule the background jobs.
