00129: Map has <value> that records Editor Tracking dates in database time zone, but time zone has not been defined

You are sharing a web layer with data that has Editor Tracking enabled and set to record dates in database time. Although all services can include data where Editor Tracking is enabled and set to record dates in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) only ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Enterprise, and Portal for ArcGIS 10.4 and later support Editor Tracking with dates recorded in database time. This includes layers of standalone tables that reference datasets with Editor Tracking enabled.


When sharing to ArcGIS Online, date values will be stored in UTC but displayed in the time zone specified in the map viewer. Viewing the feature layer in ArcGIS Pro will display the dates in UTC.

The <value> parameter indicates if layers, tables or both record Editor Tracking dates in database time.


  • Set your time zone to match the time zone of your database. The provided solution opens the Configure Service Parameters pane so you can set the time zone.
  • If your portal does not support Editor Tracking with dates recorded in database time, use the Disable Editor Tracking geoprocessing tool.

More information

Editor Tracking records who created or updated features and when changes occurred. Editor Tracking is required if you want to apply rules controlling edit permissions in feature services with ownership based on access control.

If you plan to edit with the feature service, use UTC, a standard that is unaffected by differences in time zones. Since editors can apply edits from potentially anywhere in the world, UTC works well. UTC is also recommended if you plan to do replication across time zones.
