Incorrect timestamps after re-importing a backup on a machine with a different timezone

    Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for JIRA Software Server. Using JIRA Software Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      When exporting data on a machine with timezone UTC+10 and importing it again on a machine with timezone UTC+2 all timestamps are off by 8 hours (note: they will show e.g. 4:30 pm on both machines regardless of the timezone).
      This causes issues with JIRA Agile data which is stored as unix timestamps and does not contain a timestamp by definition, those are imported correctly with the right offset.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Set timezone to UTC+10
      2. Export data
      3. Stop JIRA
      4. Set timezone to UTC+2
      5. Start JIRA
      6. Import data

      Symptoms

      • Agile charts do not list the correct issues, and the graphs are also incorrect.
      • Issue dates such as created, updated are also incorrect.
