    Problem with Python piwebapi client - time_zone parameter

      Hi PI^2,

       

      I'm having some difficulty with extracting interpolated values using the time_zone argument. I've tried using the Windows and IANA time zone format but all timestamps are given in GMT.

       

      e.g.

      dfs = client.data.get_multiple_interpolated_values(paths, start_time="y", end_time="t", interval="5s", time_zone="Australia/Perth")
      dfs = client.data.get_multiple_interpolated_values(paths, start_time="y", end_time="t", interval="5s", time_zone="W. Australia Standard Time")
      

       

      Both of these return datetime strings of the UTC format:

      2018-06-23T06:42:58.0007825Z

       

      Has anyone else encountered this issue or can suggest a solution? I'd prefer not to manually slice and dice the string to get the local time if avoidable.

       

      TIA!
