How to configure options for the JVM.

All JVM options can be passed in an environment variable named JAVA_OPTS. You can use it to change all JVM options available, such as memory, encoding, etc.


export JAVA_OPTS="-Duser.timezone=Europe/Paris"

user.timezone: Timezone

By default, Kestra will handle all dates using your system's timezone. You can change the timezone with JVM options.

Changing the timezone will mostly affect:

  • scheduler: by default, all schedule dates are UTC; changing the Java timezone will allow scheduling the flow in your timezone.
  • logs display: in your configured timezone.
