I'm able to follow the Target API documentation and use Postman to fire API request to get Target activity details. However, when I retrieved activity details in Postman, the modifiedtime seems weird.

For example: I activated a test on 12/26 6PM CT, but the information I retrieved in postman was 12/27 0:00AM, which is 4 hours late.

"startsAt": "2018-12-27T00:00:00Z",

Can anyone shed some light on this one? How do I check the timezone settings in postman, or is this a common issue?

Okay, it looks like the API response is actually 6 hours ahead, which makes a little more sense. The UI reflects your account time zone of CT (-06:00) but the API is reflecting UTC.

Cool. Could you DM me your postman response? I can look further into it.

Yes, I did specific start time instead of manually activated it. And the time looks correct in the Target UI.

Hi fcen,

Do the times look right in the Target UI for the same activity? Also, had you explicitly set a "starts at" time for the activity or had you just manually activated it at the given time?
