The required parameters for this action are shown below:
- Time zone – If you wish to get the system date and time then select select system time zone as shown in the above image else select the other option which is Specific time zone.
- Country/region – When you opt for Specific time zone this parameter will appear. It will give us option to select which country or region time we want as shown below:
