The time zone entities can be used when you write code that works in multiple time zones. The following three read-only entities in Microsoft Dynamics 365 contain time zone information:

  • The time zone definition entity stores basic information about each supported time zone, including the time zone code and the standard time zone name.

  • The time zone localized name entity stores the localized time zone names.

  • The time zone rule entity stores information about how times are calculated.

The following table lists the messages that are related to time zones, but don’t refer to a specific entity.




Retrieves all the time zone definitions for the specified locale, returning only the display name attribute.
