    How are user timezones detected?

    The user's timezone can't be detected by a ReST call itself.

    The client's public IP addresses we can be used in combination with ReST service to find a rough location.

    When a client logs into the system, the client's timezone is passed as a parameter in the ReST call /v1/auth/login/{username}.

    The web pages that use the library jstz to detect the timezone and then does log-in via ReST. We remember the user's timezone in the database session record.
