Choosing a Time Zone
The default time zone is set by your JIRA administrator (see Configuring JIRA Options), but you can personalise your JIRA account to use a time zone of your choice. This will affect all time-date fields throughout JIRA.
If the time zone specified in your JIRA user profile doesn't match the time zone of the computer you are working on, JIRA will prompt you to ask if you want to change the time zone setting in your JIRA user profile.
To choose a time zone:
- Choose your user name at top right of the screen, then choose Profile.
- In the 'Preferences' section, click the edit icon at the top-right to open the Updated User Preferences dialog box.
- Select your region (or country) and time zone from the Time Zone drop-down list.
- Click the Update button.
- All time fields in JIRA will now be displayed in your local time zone.
