2905979 - Time Zone In User Interface vs Cloud Applications Studio


The Time-Zone settings for your business user are not reflected in the SAP Cloud Applications Studio, UI Designer or system backend.


  • SAP Cloud for Customer
  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio


You can regulate the UI time-zone via business user settings, or 'My Settings'. You have to log off and back on to the system for changes you make to be reflected.

The Cloud Applications Studio, however, pulls the time-zone from the backend which is maintained in UTC (+0). The time-zone for the backend and therefore the studio cannot be changed and are not reflected from business user settings.


This is expected system behaviour. The backend needs to have a unified time-zone to keep the system stable.
