Getting local timezone information in Mapper

Need local timezone information in Mapper


I am building a scheduled integration to move data from one application to another. The integration needs to run twice a day - 6 AM and 6 PM, local time of the plant, which is based in Indiana.

Since they observe daylight savings time, 6 AM and 6 PM aren't always the same values relative to UTC. I've changed the time zone of the integration (based on this post, but the XSL dateTime functions in the mapper still return all dates in UTC time.

Is it possible to change the value returned by the implicit-timezone function to return the proper offset: -5 for Standard Time and -4 for Daylight Savings Time? I need to know during the integration execution what the local time is, and what the current offset is.

Howdy, Stranger!
