      Description

      The plugin shows correct timestamp when looking at the [Console Output:

      2019-10-03 01:28:35 Started by upstream project "10.7_release_pipeline" build number 89
      2019-10-03 01:28:35 originally caused by:

      But when looking at the same build instance using [View as plain text] the timestamp is wrong:

      [2019-10-02T22:28:35.925Z] Started by upstream project "10.7_release_pipeline" build number 89

      [2019-10-02T22:28:43.448Z] Loading library templates@branches/rel/10.7.0.x/build/change-management/jenkinsfiles/templates

      The timestamper is enabled for all pipeline build and has the following formating: '<b>'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss'</b> ' which appears correct in the [Console Output] but not in [View as plain text]

      We have the following java argument added to our master configuration: JAVA_ARGS="-Dorg.apache.commons.jelly.tags.fmt.timeZone=Europe/Sofia"

       

      The hardware clock of the VM on which the master is hosted ouputs correct timing as well:

       

      sudo hwclock --show

      Thu 03 Oct 2019 10:03:11 AM EEST -0.355352 seconds

       

      date
      Thu Oct 3 10:04:14 EEST 2019

       

      I wonder where is the wrong timestamp read from?

      Perhaps, if I knew I would be able to work around the issue by changing some system settings. Browsing the console text with correct timestamps is quite important especially when you have big outputs in general...

          I guess the plain text log (shown by "View as plaint text" button) just shows the UTC time, while my Jenkins server system time is UTC+2.
          I understand the need to store one universal time (which then can be displayed differently for different users in different timezones), but that universal time has really got to be the Jenkins server system time, not UTC time.
          Reason: Jenkins time at least makes sense to Jenkins admins and has a chance of being intuitive for users ("this timestamp is wrong! => why? => maybe it's server time, not my time"), while UTC is meaningless for anyone who does not happen to live in UTC+0 timezone just by chance.
