Set your time zone
We'll teach you how to personalize your request. The first thing on the to-do list is to display different time zones because you probably want all the data with the times that apply to your time zone.
After all, having the data displayed in your preferred time zone would be pretty convenient, right?
All of our dates and times are displayed in UTC by default. However, most applications indicate the times in their relevant time zones, such as CEST and PST.
You wouldn’t want to frustrate your clients by sending them the times of matches in the central European time zone when they live in Australia, now would you?
That’s why we’ve made it easy for you to get all the dates and times in whatever time zone you prefer.
“How do I do that?“ Easy! Simply override the default time zone (UTC) with the parameter called:
In this tutorial, we’ll add the ‘
timezone’ parameter to a request with the livescore endpoint.
For example, if you’re interested in the Asian/Singaporean timezone, this will result in the following request:
And just like that, we've successfully requested the data to be returned in the Asian/Singaporean time zone instead of the default UTC.
When you’ve parsed an invalid time zone, you’ll get the error code
400. For an overview of all error codes, see our response code page.
Now that you’ve successfully changed the time zone to the one you desire, we can move on to explore the next part of our tutorial series, which is about pagination.
