Summary0001375: Backup summary does not use timestamp format
DescriptionThe backup summary shows all timestamps (start time, end time,...) in the default "%d-%b-%Y %H:%M" format, even if the "Timestamp Format" variable is defined.
I was expecting the timestamps to use the "Timestamp Format" defined in the message resource.
Steps To Reproduce- Add the option "Timestamp Format (Dir->Messages)" to the "Standard" messages resource:
# cat /etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/messages/Standard.conf
Messages {
  Name = Standard
  timestampformat = "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"

- Restart bareos-dir daemon.
- Run a backup job.
- Check the format of the timestamps in the message.
TagsNo tags attached.

Did you try to also setup the logtimestampformat (daemon resource) to the desired format?

btw the code used to display those information doesn't use those parameters

Yes, the "Log Timestamp Format" parameter is defined to the same format in the Director configuration:

# cat /etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/director/bareos-dir.conf
Director {
    Log Timestamp Format = "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %Z"

If those parameters are not supposed to change the format of that information, then I guess that the bug can be closed. Thanks for looking at it !

Timestamps will have a unified format see work in progress in
