When testing Bulk Publishing from a data store item, I came across an issue where my data wasn't showing up because my data had editor tracking enabled, and it was set to database time (eastern standard time). In order to set the the timezone parameter, I would have to long into arcgis server manager and set the timezone parameter for each of the 19 services I bulk published from the data store item. This is not very convenient.
There I propose, that you be able to set the timezone parameter prior to publishing the layers in bulk from a data store item. There needs to be some way to define this ahead of time. Another option would be for the publishing workflow to use the connection file to access the data, and read the editor tracking settings, then apply the appropriate timezone parameter settings to the published layers. Either way would be an improvement to the current workflow.
Thank you for entertaining this idea. Thank you for everything and have a delightful day.
