How do I change AppDynamics SaaS Controller alerts so they reflect my timezone?

By default, SaaS Controller alerts show the Controller's timezone, even if the recipient's timezone is different. This can add cognitive load for the recipient, as they read to determine when an event is happening.

 

This article discusses how to change SaaS Controller alert templates so that individual alert messages convert the SaaS Controller timezone to the recipient's timezone.

How do I change the timezone for the SaaS Controller so I get alerts relevant to my timezone?

You can change the SaaS Controller timezone for alerts. 

 

By default, SaaS Controller alerts take the time stamp of the region where your Controller is deployed. However, the time zone can be edited within the email or HTTP template with a few lines of code. 

 

For example, to change the time from UTC to IST, which has a 5hr 30 min difference, here is a sample HTML email body:

#set ($date = ${action.triggerTime})

#set ($newDate = ${date.getHours()}+5)

$date.setHours(${newDate})

#set ($newDateMin = ${date.getMinutes()}+30)

$date.setMinutes(${newDateMin})

#set ($dateString =${date.toString()} )

#set ($replacedDateString=${dateString.replace('UTC','IST')})

Summary of events occurring during the ${policy.digestDurationInMins}+ minute(s) prior to ${replacedDateString}


#foreach($eventList in $clampedEventsByTypeMap.values()) 
#foreach($event in $eventList) 
New ${event.severity} Health Rule Violation

AppDynamics has detected a problem with application ${latestEvent.application.name} in tier ${latestEvent.tier.name} and node ${latestEvent.node.name}
#if (${latestEvent.healthRuleViolationEvent})
 ${latestEvent.healthRule.name} is violating.
#end
#end
#end

 

How do I set up a policy schedule for a SaaS Controller?

When setting up a policy schedule for a SaaS Controller, base health rule schedule times on the Controller’s time zone.

Hello Sriram, 

 

Ondemand Reports will be generated as per browser timezone. 

 

Thanks,
