Timezone of API key?

Hi there,

I’ve created a script that extracts 2 timestamps from our batch system and overlays them as per http://blog.elwell.org.uk/2018/06/overlaying-slurm-job-timings-on-grafana.html, however when I was overlaying it, the time of the overlay didn’t match up to the timestamps passed, Is the timezone of my local browser somehow tied into the API key? (as they seem to be global, rather than per-user)

Many thanks


Not sure I understand. If you create annotations via API you should provide timestamps in epoch ms. Since it’s epoch the value provided will always be interpreted as UTC and no conversion will be made whatsoever.

Please note that you can change timezone setting per dashboard, per user and per organization which will come into play in browser when rendering dashboards.
