Subject [jira] [Created] (KYLIN-3069) Add proper time zone support to the WebUI instead of GMT/PST kludge

Vsevolod Ostapenko created KYLIN-3069:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Add proper time zone support to the WebUI instead of GMT/PST kludge
                 Key: KYLIN-3069
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KYLIN-3069
             Project: Kylin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Web 
    Affects Versions: v2.2.0
         Environment: HDP 2.5.3, Kylin 2.2.0
            Reporter: Vsevolod Ostapenko
            Assignee: Zhixiong Chen
            Priority: Minor


Time zone handling logic in the WebUI is a kludge, coded to parse only "GMT-N" time zone specifications
and defaulting to PST, if parsing is not successful (kylin/webapp/app/js/filters/filter.js)

Integrating moment and moment time zone (http://momentjs.com/timezone/docs/) into the product,
would allow correct time zone handling.
For the users who happen to reside in the geographical locations that do observe day light
savings time, usage of GMT-N format is very inconvenient and info reported by the UI in various
places is perplexing.
Needless to say that the GMT moniker itself is long deprecated.
