App service time zone does not change it.

Clark 1 Reputation point


I have some problems about setting timezone.

My app service is running on Linux service plan. I have tired many ways to change timezone.

I got some information from community.

and I tried those things.

app setting

WEBSITE_TIME_ZONE = Korea Standard Time -> does not work, I guess it is for Windows app service plan.

TZ = Asia/Seoul -> does not work, I guess it is for Linux but...

Does anyone fix timezone issue?

Thank you for answering!

    You can verify the same by executing the date command in your app's SSH console.
