Jira Data Center on Kubernetes - Timezone Issues

In a microk8s kubernetes implementation of Jira Data Center, I was receiving cluster replication failure errors (Index replication for cluster node jira-data-center-0 is behind by 14000 seconds.) with an offset that was identical to the timezone (EDT which is UTC -4).   With research, I discovered this is due to a Jira Data Center timezone of UTC and a database timezone of EDT (this is documented in the Knowledge base:,seconds%20as%20the%20timezone%20offset.)

Setting the timezone at the node level and the pod level did not resolve the issue.  

I resolved the issue by modifying my values.yaml to include the JVM directive in the additionalJvmArgs section.

additionalJvmArgs: [-Duser.timezone="America/Indiana/Indianapolis"]

Interesting... I guess it depends on the K8s flavor and cloud. Say, in OpenShift I was able to set timezone on a pod level by adding a TZ env var to container env. Node time zone was indeed ignored.
