Timezone issue while querying data from Jira


I'm querying data from jira api endpoint for different tickets using python.
Account which I'm using to query data from jira is having timezone set in UTC. I am able to query data in UTC timezone. But the date data it returned is not in utc. This is the value of Updated filed. (2022-06-06 04:22:20.269000-06:00)

it returned data in US/Mountain.

Anybody know what's the reason behind this.

Thank you @Bill Sheboy 

Hi @Mridul Gupta -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I did not see this behavior described on the REST API documentation pages, but I did see this post in the developer community which notes use of UTC...except for some fields which use the profile setting of the user who created an issue, updated it, etc.

Please consider also reposting your question in the developer community to see who has other thoughts on this.

Kind regards,
