How to correctly change the timezone


Moscow's timezone was changed from GMT+4 to GMT+3.

When I change -Duser.timezone then JIRA shows DateTime CF values incorretly for one hour less.

Moreover, PostgreSQL returns DateTime CF values incorrectly too: "2014-10-30 23:00:00+03" instead of "2014-10-31 00:00:00+04". I need to write UPDATE statement?

How to correctly change the timezone in JIRA?

Thank in advance!

I run JIRA 5.0.4 on JVM 1.6

It's not enough to set timezone in OS, DBMS and JVM.You should aslo update joda-time.


Now, 2018, same problem. More important: same solution!

Thanks very much.

Joda Time updated from 2.8.2 to 2.10 solved my problem.
