General Availability: Time zone choice for Azure SQL Database Managed Instance
Published date: May 22, 2019
Azure SQL Database Managed Instance offers a choice of time zones to meet the needs of the existing applications.
If your application stores date and time, invokes date and time functions, or schedules SQL Agent jobs with an implicit requirement for a specific time zone, you can now migrate to managed instance without any application changes.
You can specify a time zone during instance creation via Azure portal, PowerShell, or Azure CLI.
A list of supported time zones is regularly updated with the new time zone definitions and changes to the existing ones.
For more details, see Time Zone in Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.
