Not using Universal Timestamp in alteryx log file


By default, the timestamp in the log files is universal timestamp.

How to change to use server timestamp instead of universal timestamp?


It can be changed by updating the value in C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\config\Nlog.config



<column layout="${date:universalTime=true:format=yyyy-MM-dd HH\:mm\:ss.ffffff}" name="Date"/>


<column layout="${date:universalTime=false:format=yyyy-MM-dd HH\:mm\:ss.ffffff}" name="Date"/>


@Samuel_To Thank you for posting this tip. There are a couple things that you should keep in mind regarding this setting. First changes to this setting will only effect the Gallery logs. The service logs (and any other logs in UTC) will still be time stamped in UTC time after the change. Second the Alteryx support team will expect these logs to be in UTC. As such changing this setting may cause the support engineer you are working with on any server issues some confusion when reviewing the logs. If you do decide to change this setting please let your support engineer know that the Gallery logs are in local server time instead of UTC and provide the current timezone of the server so they are able to correlate events in various logs as needed.
