To change the time zone in MongoDB, you can use the following steps:

  1. Connect to your MongoDB instance using the mongo shell or any other MongoDB client.
  2. Use the use command to select the database where you want to change the time zone:
use mydatabase

  1. Set the timeZone option to the desired time zone using the db.runCommand() method:
db.runCommand({setParameter: 1, timeZone: "America/New_York"})

Replace "America/New_York" with the desired time zone. You can find a list of supported time zones in the tz database.

Note that the setParameter command requires the setParameter action on the admin database. If you do not have the necessary permissions, you may need to authenticate as a user with the required privileges before running the command.

You can verify that the time zone has been changed by running the following command:

db.runCommand({whatsmyuri : 1})

The output of this command will include the current time zone.
