You can configure the format for dates that are returned by the Legacy REST Web Services interface. It will return dates in one of the following formats:

To control which date format will be returned, set the enableFormatDateOutput property of the /atg/rest/output/JSONOutputCustomizer or /atg/rest/output/XMLOutputCustomizer components.

Note: The return depth for a REST request may cause a date property to be expanded. If a date property is expanded, it will not be in either of the formats described in this section but will be a set of properties that make up the date. See Return Depth. If you do not want to expand date properties, you can suppress property expansion for them. See Suppressing Property Expansion in Legacy REST.

Time Zone Configuration

If you set the enableFormatDate property of the JSONOutputCustomizer or XMLOutputCustomizer to true, the Legacy REST Web Services interface returns date values using the time zone specified by the timeZoneId property. The default value for this property is Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Set the timeZoneId property of JSONOutputCustomizer or XMLOutputCustomizer to the time zone identifier that you choose. Specify the time zone using a string recognized by the java.util.TimeZone class.

If you choose to return the string representation of Java Date objects, the Legacy REST interface will return date values using the time zone of the server.
