Add Time Offset Option to OPC UA Connector
Please add a time offset option to the OPC UA Connector, similar to the old OPC DA interface (see attached screenshot).
In come cases the OPC UA server may not actually be sending timestamps that are in UTC (ex. in local time) so an offset is needed to change the timestamps into UTC.
Gabriel Michaud-Verreault commented
The connector follow the OPC Foundation specifications. As an OPC UA client, all values received from an OPC UA compliant server is to be in UTC. The connector then sends it to PI DA in UTC. Depending on the client tool you are using, you can then retrieve UTC or Local timestamp.
Please see https://reference.opcfoundation.org/v104/Core/docs/Part3/8.38/
All time values conveyed between OPC UA Servers and Clients are UTC values. Clients shall provide any conversions between UTC and local time.
