tzdb

Section: Server
Default Value: 1, 0 (see description)
Valid Values: 1, 0
Changes Take Effect: Immediately
Dependencies: [auth] configuration
Introduced: 8.5.214.08

Specifies whether or not WFM time zones are converted to standard IANA time zones.

The default value for this option depends on the [auth] configuration:

  • If [auth] is not configured, the default value is 0.
  • If [auth] is configured the default value is 1.

When this option default is 1 (enabled), WFM time zones (and time zone assignments for business units, sites, etc.), are automatically converted to Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) time zones, and no longer synchronize with Genesys time zones. When this option default is 0 (disabled), WFM time zones are not converted to IANA time zones.

Time zone conversion is done by using a JSON mapping file (tzmap.json) that can be modified, if necessary.

List of Release Notes

What's New

This release contains the following new features and enhancements:

  • WFM Server now supports the improvement in WFM Web 8.5.217.22 in which users can now filter agents by primary activities only. As a prerequisite for this support, the [auth] provider option must be configured in the WFM Web, Server, Builder, and Data Aggregator Applications. (WFM-33427)


Resolved Issues

This release contains the following resolved issues:


WFM Server no longer terminates unexpectedly when a single user accesses the same session through multiple threads, simultaneously. Previously in this type of scenario, WFM Server sometimes terminated unexpectedly. (WFM-33416)


WFM now enables users to enter multiple, longer memos for Exception schedule states. Previously, memos were sometimes truncated if the size limitation was exceeded. Now, while memos might still be truncated, the use of compression enables preservation of user-entered memos in all but the most extreme cases. (WFM-33409)


WFM now consistently displays all time zones as expected. Previously, WFM sometimes failed to display time zones if WFM Server Application's [auth] provider option was specified but its [Server] tzdb option was not (was empty). (WFM-33388)


WFM now always opens schedule scenarios successfully. Previously, WFM sometimes failed to open or to build some schedule scenarios if the scenarios had an extended end date specified. (WFM-33316)
