FortiGate system time and log timestamp not matching

ModelFortiGate 200F
Versionv7.2.7 build1577

 

When viewing logs and system events in the UI the event timestamp is one hour behind system time.

I'm suspecting some bug with DST not applying to logged events.

I have attached multiple screenshots showing the diffs and settings.

Current system time is correct

Last Access Time should be 15:32:59

These logs are current and are showing one hour wrong

Hello @upsales-devops ,

 

Can you check this setting in the System -> Settings menu? 

 

If this setting is configured with "browser timezone" logs are shown with a browser time zone setting.

Our setting was FortiGate timezone, and changing to Browser timezone did make the timestamps show up correctly.

This feels like it's not the proper way to solve this issue, but it does solve issue we are facing so I will accept it as a solution.
