Hey @yarlanda,

I have just given this a go and it appears to be working for me, I am not sure why it wouldn’t be working though. Can you share more on your docker configuration?

Hey @Jon

Here’s my compose file:

    image: n8nio/n8n
      - "5678:5678"
      - N8N_PUSH_BACKEND=websocket
      - GENERIC_TIMEZONE="Indian/Mauritius"
      - TZ="Indian/Mauritius"
      - .n8n:/home/node/.n8n
    container_name: n8n

Interesting, If you run the workflow does it output the correct value anyway?

It runs normally but with “Invalid DateTime” as value

@yarlanda what happens if you use a different timezone / tz value? I am wondering if maybe we have an issue there.

You’re right. It is with timezone. It works now

In fact I have commented my environment variables for timezone and it works!

Perfect, I will take a proper look in the morning to see if I can work out what is going on there.

@Jon Thanks again for your help
