An important consideration is the proper management of the Date/Time and Time Zone configuration. Communication between SAP Hybris Cloud CTI Toolbar, EF Server, and Cisco Finesse carry timestamps. If the system date and time are not synchronized the system can produce unpredictable results. Therefore, please make every effort to adhere to the following time synchronization guidelines:
SAP Hybris Cloud CRM, EF EF Server, and Cisco Finesse should have their time zone configured properly according to the geographic region. To configure the time zone, please see the instructions from the hardware or software manufacturer.
As a best practice, SAP Hybris Cloud CRM and EF Server should be synchronized to the second. This synchronization should be maintained continuously and validated on a regular basis. For security reasons, Network Time Protocol (NTP) V 4.1+ is recommended.
