when someone performs the following GET call : /cloud/tenants/{ID}/?format=Entity

they usually get back something like this:
Code: Select all

My question is what timezone is the Last Active element being reported in?
It is formatted in Zulu time but looks to me like it is not actually UTC at all because this actual example would line up with eastern standard time (we are on Eastern Time with our servers).
Can you clarify this?

I will answer my own question. I just found out that our database instance is in GMT Standard Time for some reason. so The 'Last Active' is actually in UTC
